How to Pray Like Jesus During the holiday season, a man in a big red suit appears at the mall and in the movies. Children write letters with their Christmas lists to him. Oftentimes, we think of praying as if we’re writing letters to Santa Claus, where we ask for everything we want. But prayer is more than our Christmas list; it is an opportunity to focus on who God is and what He wants to do in our life and world. Join us this week as we prepare our hearts for this holiday season by learning to pray like Jesus.
