Question: What is Christian Praying? The Hows, Whats, and Whys of This Mysterious Activity

Answer: Amos Yong, Ph.D.

Do you ever wonder what we are doing when we pray, particularly in light of Jesus’ and early Christians praying?

The biblical accounts provide templates for praying on the one hand but also, if we are open to a fresh reconsideration, raise many questions about this fundamental human activity on the other. Come to revisit and dialogue about prayer — Jesus’, the early disciples’, and our own — whether you consider yourself a “prayer warrior” or someone who doesn’t pray.
