Episode 6: Call God First - 6 Rs of Prayer (The Lingering Life Podcast)


Episode 6: Call God first - 6 Rs of prayer

Think with me for a moment about the most exciting news you’ve heard so far this year. Or think about the hardest, most upsetting or hurtful news you’ve heard so far this year. Who did you call first with this news? 

Our tendency is to call others’ first. But when we call God first, it transforms us. 

Join me on today’s podcast for a conversation about prayer and the lingering life.  Let’s chat!

Show Notes:

Highlights from this episode:

When it comes to prayer, There is no right or wrong way to pray. You can’t talk to God wrong. But there is a posture that reminds me I’m talking with a HOLY God who created me and then died in my place so that I could spend eternity with him.

Recognize

Remember

Repent

Request

Relinquish

Rest

I’m not perfect. That’s not my goal. My goal is to linger with Jesus. My God. My friend. My savior. My creator. And the conversations are so sweet. They bring me peace and joy and patience and hope.
