When a person has a desire to say thank you, or to praise someone for something that they have done, or if they have a request or petition of another...they would usually communicate that message by some regular form of communication.

Today we communicate to one another through the internet, cell phones, PDA's, telephones, letters and on occasion, one to one.  There are hundreds of different ways to communicate with other people, but the most advanced system of  communication that this world will ever know is called "prayer." 

Prayer to God gets your message to the Supreme God who created the heavens and the earth. There are no wires, no satellites, no batteries to charge, no wireless radio waves or cell phone transmissions.  Our thoughts do not even need to be the one true God can hear when we direct our thoughts and hearts towards Him.

The purpose of this lesson is to provide a very brief introduction to the subject of prayer.  Although the subject of prayer might take a lifetime for mankind to discuss and study...the lesson here is short and focused on the essentials so that you may, in a relatively short period of time, begin a more focused life of prayer.


After completing this lesson, you will be better prepared to answer these questions:

  • What is prayer?
  • What instructions did Jesus give His disciples on how they should pray?
  • What should accompany prayer?
  • Does God hear the prayers of those who are not "in Christ?"

About this lesson:

This lesson focuses primarily on the New Testament scriptures related to prayer.  The lesson contains 26 questions.  This brief study is designed as a beginning point in our understanding of prayer. Continue to study the entire Bible on your own...over and over...and with others who are searching for the truth.
