More Lessons from the School of Prayer

If you will recall from the previous post, lesson number one was this:

Here is lesson number two from D. A. Carson in his book A Call to Spiritual Reformation:

Is this guy reading my mail or what?

Among the helps he suggests in this section of the first chapter are to vocalize your prayers, pray over the Scriptures, pray through the worship sections of better hymnals, pray through the segments of the Lord’s prayer, uses lists, and journal.

Class is in session. May we get high grades in Jesus’ school of prayer.
