Trending Faith: Why Ask Multiple People to Pray?

A group of people reading the Bible under the Trending Faith logo

On this week’s Trending Faith, Grand Canyon University Dean of Student and Pastor Tim Griffin and Dean of the College of Theology Jason Hiles, PhD, sat down to discuss prayer and whether we should invite other people to join us in praying.

Pastor Tim explained that he believes that there is some misconception about prayer.

“Prayer is simply having a conversation with the Living God,” Pastor Tim said. He added that prayers, like conversations, can be had one-on-one or in a group.

“It can be dynamic, exciting and very rich when people are joined together in conversation,” he said, adding, “I think God is all about relationships. I think He sent His son to restore a relationship between us and Him … I think that God enjoys when His family gets together and talks to Him about things.”
