Deepening Our Relationship with Jesus
Another aspect of “Going Deeper in Prayer” is to understand better the meaning behind the words of the following prayers so that we can come to know and love, in a much deeper way, the Person of Jesus. As we speak with Jesus each day in prayer, we will come to recognize more and more how much He loves us.
The format of the resources for each prayer includes:
- Why we want to pray this prayer each day
- The meaning of the words
- Learning the principles
- Scriptural References
