Can you teach me how to do that?
Is prayer your steering wheel, or your spare tire?

Main Point #1
Rewarding prayer comes from...
Closing the door.
Many of our greatest moments with God happen behind closed doors.
What doors do I have open that prevent a connection with God?
Main Point #2
Rewarding prayer comes from...
A heart-to-heart conversation.
Pray - In some languages there are several different terms used for prayer…, for example, requests for material blessing, pleas for spiritual help, intercession for others, thanksgiving, and praise. The most generic expression for prayer may simply be ‘ It is normally best to avoid an expression which means primarily ‘to recite.’

-Johannes P. Louw and Eugene Albert Nida, Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament: Based on Semantic Domains (New York: United Bible Societies, 1996), 408.
My prayer life reflects my relationship with God.
Few Christians have anything but a vague idea of the power of prayer; fewer still have any experience of that power. The church seems almost whol­ly unaware of the power God puts into her hand; this spiritual carte blanche on the infinite resources of God’s wisdom and power is rarely, if ever, used—never used to the full measure of honoring God. It is astounding how poor the use, how little the benefits. Prayer is our most formidable weapon, but the one in which we are the least skilled, the most averse to its use.

-E.M Bounds – The Power of Prayer

Giving at The Vineyard

We don't pass a plate for tithes and offerings here at Vineyard, but we do believe that giving back through our finances is an important way to worship Jesus.
