7 Pointers on Prayer

Here is an outline I put together for a Sunday night teaching. These pointers are helpful for both public and private prayer.

1. Avoid cliche sayings. (Matthew 6:7)
2. Be real. (Psalm 13, Gethsemane)
3. Don’t be afraid of silence.
4. Try structuring your prayers. (Lord’s Prayer, ACTS)
5. Pray through Scripture. (Ex. Psalm 34)
6. Consider utilizing written prayers.
7. Try prayer walking or other active prayer methods.
