You Can Become a Person of Prayer

In Too Busy Not to Pray, pastor Bill Hybels calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, broadening our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

The urgent need for prayer in today’s broken world is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. So Bill Hybels offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray.

In Too Busy Not to Pray, you and your church will learn:

  • The importance of a consistent time and place for prayer
  • How to organize prayers according to tried-and-true frameworks
  • How to hear the Spirit’s promptings
  • To love prayer time

Hybels helps you slow down, listen to God, and learn how to respond. As a result, you will grow closer to God and experience the benefits of spending time with him.

We have put together everything you need to take your church through a four week preaching and small group campaign exploring how to become a people of prayer. The DVD contains four 15-18-minute video teaching sessions from Bill Hybels.

The study guide provides individual and group activities, between-session personal studies, and additional background material that will enhance the experience of the video sessions.

The curriculum can be used in a variety of ways – as a whole church campaign (adult congregation), adult Sunday school, small-group study, or individual use.

Too Busy Not to Pray sessions include:
Why Pray?
Our Part of the Deal
When Prayer Feels Hard
People of Prayer
