More Effective Prayer

Stuart and Jill Briscoe

Do you ever feel like your prayers are bouncing off the walls instead of landing in the presence of God? Or, maybe you pray more out of obligation than relationship, so even as you say the words you recognize the lack of passion in your voice. You’re left wondering if God hears your prayers—and, more importantly, will He answer them?

What’s the secret to an effective prayer life—one where you’re eager to lose yourself in the presence of God and confident that your prayers are rising to heaven and making a difference?

In this 5-message series, Pete, Stuart, and Jill Briscoe show you how to move from a mundane prayer life to a vibrant and rich one where you’ll no longer doubt that God is eagerly awaiting your company and answering your prayers.

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Teach Us to Listen

    Jill Briscoe

    If you only talked to your spouse for a minute or two a few times a week, what would your relationship be like?  Disconnected?  Distant?  A lot of us have a prayer life like that.  We don’t spend much time in conversation with God, and when we make the effort, we do all the talking!

    One of the things that matters most to Jesus is our personal relationship with Him.  He offers the human race an incredible invitation. He says, “Let’s talk.”  What does this mean?  It involves listening to His Word and responding in prayer.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe gives you a vivid picture of the intimacy you’ll experience when you carve out time to connect with God.

    Scripture:  Luke 10:38 - 10:42

  2. 2. How Disciples Pray

    Stuart Briscoe

    Prayer is an essential part of the Christian life. Jesus made that clear throughout His ministry, as He both actively participated in it and frequently talked about it with His disciples.

    But how exactly should we pray? And will God even answer?

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe walks you through the Lord’s Prayer in the Sermon on the Mount to explain how to pray and what to pray. This message will give you the confidence you need to step into a vibrant life of prayer and intimacy with Jesus.

    Scripture:  Matthew 6:5 - 6:15
