‘Teach us to Pray’
Restoring the Heartbeat of the Church

The disciples’ request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray’ has a perennial ring to it for Christians through the ages. Maintaining a fresh and faithful prayer life, at a corporate level in the church as much as in our personal devotional life, is one of the greatest challenges in the life of faith. How does Jesus answer this request in the busyness and superficiality of the world in which we are called to serve?
