Overview

You'll explore the question of why and how you should pray, as well as the true nature of prayer. Talking with My Father reminds you that Jesus lived in constant communion with God.

Jesus never taught His disciples how to preach, but how to talk to God—to enter into a spiritual conversation! For Jesus, prayer was as necessary as breathing—the very breath of life itself. In the same way, Christ calls you to a life of spiritual intimacy and offers the life-giving secrets of prayer.
