Prayer isn’t about bending God’s will to ours, but about surrendering our wills to his and thereby thriving in him, as we tell his story for his glory and our best.

Matthew 7:7-11 ESV
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Jesus says, prayer involves:

• Boldly asking God to tell his story, for his glory, in and through us • Earnestly seeking the restored life/purpose Jesus calls us to
• Relentlessly knocking on the door of fellowship with him
