Talking, texting, posting, and blogging—students certainly are not strangers to communication with others. Communication with God, however, is a different matter for most students. This is a four-session KNOW study under the Disciplines category. The spritual discipline of prayer is a vital discipline for students in their spiritual transformation. As students learn to pray, they get to know God; as they get to know God, it becomes easier to spend time in prayer with Him.
