“I have been asked to pray the opening prayer in honor of our veterans next month. What should I say?”
If feelings of doubt, awkwardness, or hesitation is a part of your emotions when it comes to praying in different settings, you are not alone. Perhaps you feel uncertain about what to say or how others will respond; it’s OK. God knows your heart, and He loves hearing from you.
LIFE Outreach is here to help address and overcome those concerns through prayer clinics for your church or group. We’ll incorporate Christ’s instruction and interactively apply it to various scenarios and settings.
There’s no need for fancy prayers. Jesus even said:
“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.” (Matthew 6:7-8) KJV
