What is prayer? Why does it matter? Is there a right way to pray? Join Kayla Craig, Lindsy Wallace, and Alissa Molina as they enter into an engaging, unexpected, fast-paced conversation with Justin McRoberts and Scott Erickson; the authors of Prayer: Forty Days of Practice. We talk about praying when you don’t want to pray or don’t know how, being angry at God, creation as a form of prayer, and why prayer is an important part of God’s upside-down Kingdom.
Justin McRoberts is an author and musician who hosts the @Sea Podcast and lives with his wife and two kids in the Oakland/San Francisco Bay area. Scott Erickson is a touring painter and performance artist who mixes autobiography, biblical narrative, and aesthetics to create art. He lives with his wife and three kids in Portland.
In this episode, we:
- Discuss how our understandings of prayer can grow and change over time;
- Address why prayer can feel contrived or unnatural;
- Ask why art and prayer are important in God’s Kingdom;
- Talk about lament, anger, and privilege when it comes to prayer
- Answer how writing and creating can be redemptive tools.
Join us as we dive into prayer, creativity, and spirituality.
