Prayer is one of the most important parts of our spiritual lives that is often times something that is difficult to explain and confusing to participate. Below is a simple outline that I have found helpful to enhance our own prayers and share with others as well:
Reverence: Having a greater understanding of who God is
Response: Based on what we know about God
Request: Express dependence upon God for personal needs
Readiness: For opportunities to participate in what God is doing
Reverence: Finish with who God is
This is a simple outline but hopefully it will help us become more effective in our prayers for our personal lives and the city of Austin.
