In this session the participants will be encouraged to examine their current notions of prayer and broaden their understanding of prayer as a means of communication with God.

We all know that Christians are supposed to pray but how we are supposed to pray remains a mystery for many of us. As a Presbyterian leader, you may be called on to answer some tough questions about the purpose of prayer. For example, is it acceptable to pray for a raise or for a victory for your child's soccer team? Should we pray for a miracle for a terminally ill friend or should we pray for the strength to handle any outcome? And if God knows what we need, why should we have to ask anyway? We've all heard the saying that God answers every prayer but sometimes the answer is "no." If that's the case, how can we know that our prayers have been answered at all? You're sure to find valuable insights on this foundational issue in this study.
