What is your earliest memory of praying?

Questions for Discussion: Please discuss one, or more, of the following questions. 
  1. When you pray, what are your expectations?  How do they align with God’s image in John 15: 1-9?
  2. Mike White states “…who we believe God is will impact our prayer life.”  How does your belief in God impact your prayer life?  
  3. What do you view as your source(s) of life?  What are examples and how effective have they been at providing life?  Have you ever been let down by one of these sources of life?  How could you shift to Jesus as source of life? 
  4. How can you shift your prayer life from an obligation to connecting with the Source of Life?  
Prayer: Pray the Lord’s prayer together, using the Passion Translation. 

Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms,

may the glory of your name

be the center on which our lives turn.

Manifest your kingdom realm,

and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth,

just as it is fulfilled in heaven.

We acknowledge you as our Provider
