The 5 Components of a Growing Prayer LIfe


I think one of the reasons people struggle with prayer or fail to grow is that they don't have any idea how to evaluate their prayer life.  We can fairly readily break our physical health down into some core components of strength, flexibility, cardio fitness, etc.  But, what about our spiritual health?

Over the summer, while on a sabbatical, I came to recognize 5 core components of a healthy, growing, prayer life.  I call these core components, the 5 Pillars of Life Changing Prayer.…

What are easy to follow bible study and prayer methods you use?

About 30 years ago I started reading the Bible daily and journaling. Recently, a friend said that she was following a SOAP method for Bible study, ie. Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.

Suggestions on other ways to prayer scripture.

  Sometimes I pray scripture simply by voicing a prayer from scripture, like the Lord's prayer or one of Paul's prayers for the people he ministered to.  More often than not I use Lectio Divina to interlace scripture and my prayer life together.  You can see the model I use most often here: http://www. thepracticaldisciple.com/2009/08/praying-scripture-using-lectio-divina.html. But, I would really like to know what other people mean by praying scripture, so I can put together some instruction…
