Prayer Week - Resources

Timberview's Week of Prayer is designed to help deepen and strengthen your prayer life. A key part of that is adopting the goal of having a regular daily prayer time at least 5 days a week.

One reason so many evangelical Christians find consistent fresh prayer times to be so difficult is that we have cut ourselves off from the historic practice of allowing the prayers of others to inspire and inform our prayers. Certainly we don't want to only repeat rote prayers written by others and call it good. But neither do we want to ignore the incredible treasure trove of challenging inspiring prayers both from scripture and from the writings of exemplary Christians across the centuries.

Check out these websites

Upward and onward
