Asking and Authenticity

Conversational Prayers of Asking and Authenticity

Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find, knock and the door will be opened (Matt 7:7).

Robert and Janet Ellsworth note that many people feel uncomfortable with prayers that ask for something, thinking that such prayers are selfish or begging. They quote a well-known author, "I don't want prayer to be just one more way that the narcissist asks for what he wants. It's time to grow out of the image of God as our errand boy."

Such beliefs, however, come from deep-seated feelings of being unworthy and our feelings about worthiness will either support or negate receiving what we ask.

This class will help you with being comfortable asking in prayer for what you need and equip you with techniques for making requests in prayer.

This class is part of the Unity Georgetown Prayer Class series.

Feeling Comfortable with Asking in Prayer

This class will provide you with an understanding of:

  • why and how we can pray for our own needs

Techniques for Making Requests in Prayer

You will will explore various techniques for making requests in prayer, including The Serenity Prayer, the Prayer of Loving Kindness, Master Minding, Treasure Mapping, Bible mail and writing affirmations.
