Prayer—if it’s pretty simple, why does it sometimes feel so complicated and elusive? And what do you do when it feels like a chore or obligation?

NavPress believes that prayer is a core discipline of every believer. Prayer can bring relief to ease our burdens and also bring joy to God, who is always listening. We have resources that will encourage and equip you to become a more faithful person of prayer.

Prayer doesn’t have to be complicated.

Prayer is a conversation between you and God. It sounds simple, but sometimes we need encouragement in order for our passion for prayer to grow. How to Pray is written to evoke a passion for prayer in everyone—the committed follower of Jesus as well as the skeptic and the scared. Experience the life-giving and life-changing power of prayer!


“Prayer is supposed to be simple.” – Jarred Stevens

If you’re new to prayer, God seems silent, or you find yourself in need of direction—you don’t have to let these obstacles keep you from God. There is a way for you to pray through!


Prayer Killers in American Culture

Prayer is hard. Often, unless circumstances demand it—such as an illness or saying grace before a meal—most of us simply do not pray. This kind of prayerlessness can leave us with a distressed spirit and practical unbelief characterized by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual depression. A life of prayer invites you to a life of connection to God. A Praying Life reminds readers that prayer is simply making conversation with God a rhythm of life.
