It is reported that today, the average Christian prays about 3 minutes each day. Think about that, only three minutes a day!
To the casual observer it might suggest that “We are just so busy as Americans that we just don’t have time to pray”, but if we probe a little deeper, we’ll realize that it communicates something far worse: that most Christians don’t believe that prayer actually works!
Why is that?
At UnveilinGLORY we believe the heart of the issue is this: Most of our prayers are self-centered or “Cat Prayers”. Instead of seeking to advance God’s kingdom, we are asking God to advance ours. Instead of asking God how we can serve Him, we are gently telling God how He can serve us. God’s Word makes it very clear; He isn’t interested in answering selfish prayers! (James 4:2,3) With most self-centered prayers not being answered, most Christians have concluded that, “Prayer just doesn’t work!” and as a result, they either check in with God for only three minutes a day or stop praying all together.
So many pastors and leaders have shared with us that they believe one of the biggest stumbling blocks to the growth of their churches and their members is the self-centered attitude in their Christianity. In answer to their concerns UnveilinGLORY has developed “Giving Prayer a Second Chance”. It is an eye opening and potentially life-changing series of eight messages designed to develop a God-centered and God-honoring prayer life in the members of your church or organization:
Giving Prayer a Second Chance will directly challenge the members of your church or organization to rethink their entire prayer life and then move to align it closer to what God is doing right there in your church and around the world.
Giving Prayer a Second Chance can be delivered in 2, 3, 4 or even 5-hour modules, but we recommend experiencing at least 3 hours. We have found that the more people are exposed to the material, the greater the impact!
We understand that each body of believers is unique, so we are ready to work with your church or organization to determine which modules best serve your particular needs.
