Real Prayer | Discerning God at the Pace of your Soul Episode 05

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Kyle Strobel

The Lord’s Prayer is at the very heart of what prayer is supposed to be, as we pray with and in Jesus.” – Kyle Strobel

Featuring Kyle Strobel’s latest book, Where Prayer Becomes Real, today’s episode is on the importance of honesty and sincerity in prayer. Kyle and his co-author John Coe write on prayer from a practical, theoretically rich approach, addressing what happens existentially when we pray. He shares that we actually are dishonest in our prayers, as if it’s a performative act before God, based on our preconceived notions of how we should pray. He then focuses on the importance of watchfulness and the need for us to cultivate a life of earnest, unceasing prayer.
