Episode 13: Relational Prayer

Episode 13: Relational Prayer

In this episode I walk through Larry Crabb's excellent work on prayer, The PAPA Prayer. I highly recommend his works. PAPA is an acronym guiding what he describes as relational prayer which should serve as the foundational motivation for prayer. The aim of prayer is to get God not just answers/blessings. Present yourself as you are with all honesty and no spin. Attend to who His word says He is not your images or faulty understandings built off bad examples from authority figures in our pasts. Purge anything hindering intimacy. Then finally you can approach God with your heart set on what matters most and what your heart most deeply wants...Him.
