Someone asked, ‘What kind of Christians do you dream of?’ Personalize it; What kind of Christian do you dream of being? What kind of Christians do we dream of growing in our new home? Real… Authentic… Honest… Joyous… Resilient…Compassionate… If the new way to know God is to know Him through Jesus, maybe the new way to talk to God should be to pray like Jesus.  So,… how did Jesus pray? Jesus prayed real, ‘no holds barred’ prayers—complete with cries and tears, when needed. Look at some of Jesus’ prayers from John 17, Matthew 26:36-46, and 6:9-13.  How have you been praying? Do you pray AT God, or TO God? What have you been too afraid, embarrassed, or tired to ask for?
