21: Prayer is Conversation

Guest: Brian Delamont

How is prayer foundational in our everyday and key to our transformation?  Brian Delamont returns to the podcast to dialogue about how we can continue the conversation with God.

  • “What is prayer, then, in the fullest sense? Prayer is continuing a conversation that God has started through His Word and His grace, which eventually becomes a full encounter with Him.” – Tim Keller
  • “Prayer is continuing a conversation that God has started.”
  • “Through Jesus, we have access to the Father by the Spirit, no matter whether we are ‘far away’ or ‘near.’”
  • “Jesus teaches us to address the holy, sovereign God of the universe as ‘Father.’ That is, Jesus teaches us to address the holy sovereign God of the universe the same way He does.” – Darrell Johnson
  • “When we come to God, we frame this in the basis of who He is and what His character and nature is.”
  • “God has greater ability, He has better solutions, He has divine timing.”
  • “God will either give us what we ask or give us what we would have asked if we knew everything He knows.” – Tim Keller
  • “Prayer, at its core, has a large element of trust. If I trust God, then I have to trust His ways and His working, even if it’s way off from my expectations.”
  • Ephesians 1:18
  • War Room Movie
  • “Remember the relational aspect of prayer […] It’s this awareness and welcoming of God’s conversation into your day.”
