Prayers in Scripture Week 2

Episode 154 | Prayers in Scripture | Released November 14, 2022 | Special guest: Mark Batterson

We’re back for Week 2 of our Prayers in Scripture reading plan and Raechel and Amanda are joined by pastor and prolific author, Mark Batterson. The three spend time reflecting on the habits, posture, and tension of prayer as seen in this week’s Scripture readings, especially in Jesus’s own prayers in the Garden of Gethsemane. Listen in and be encouraged in your own rhythms and practices of prayer with a God who calls us to be with Him so our lives can reflect Him.

If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak….We are far too easily pleased. —C. S. Lewis in The Weight of Glory
