Principle:
Recognising our tendency to fulfil our sense of security, self-worth & significance through a relentless vocational pursuits, we re-orient our lives around a sacred rhythm of rest & worship.

Habit:
Habit 3: We commit to take one full day every week for complete rest from our daily work, and to make Sabbath possible for those around us.
Habit 4: We commit to pausing once in the middle of the day for a ‘Selah’ moment of prayer and reflection.

Verse:
Matthew 11:28-30:
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Prayer:
“God through two deliberate salvation acts in history you released us from bondage: from the relentless slavery of modern life, as well as the eternal bondage of misplaced identity.Help us to develop the skill of truly living in the freedom that you purchased for us”

How is your prayer life? It’s a simple question, but often difficult to answer. You might be struggling in this area of faith, wondering where you can get your hands on the latest issue of “Prayer for Dummies”. You might be experiencing growth in your prayer life or wondering if prayer is even necessary. Perhaps you understand the importance of prayer life but life’s chaos has gotten the better of you, and now you’re wondering if you need to reintroduce yourself to God as if he can’t remember who you are!

Prayer might be mysterious in many ways, but there is nothing more precious in the Christian life. D. Martin Lloyd-Jones said: “Of all the blessings of Christian salvation none is greater than this, that we have access to God in prayer.” Prayer is God’s call and invitation to his people to get ‘in sync’ with him. In prayer we sync with God in our relationship with him, and in what he might do in the lives of others and in the world.
Over the next two weeks, we will be looking at the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:5-15), as Jesus challenges and encourages us to sync with him and embrace him through prayer.
