Prayer. Everyone has done it. We’ve all attempted to make that connection with God in hopes that He would hear our plea, or in hopes that He would answer back and give us direction or make some sense of the chaos in our lives. But many have been disappointed in the results of their prayers. Some have just stopped praying altogether, because despite their efforts, there just didn’t seem to be any connection with God. This series will examine the pattern for an effective prayer life, some principles to follow to ensure a connection with God, and some problems to avoid that can hinder the effectiveness of our prayers.
