We desire to be a people of prayer. We want to be active in prayer and expectant for God to move. But where do we start? What words should come out of our mouths and what thoughts should fill our minds? A great place to start is Jesus' teaching on how to pray. We see it in Matthew 6:9-13 and you probably know the words by heart. From there, let your heart be known and trust in God's care for you, in the ongoing petition before the throne by Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit in power in your life and others. 

May you be encouraged by this word from John Piper, praying the Lord's Prayer, giving depth the familiar.
