Celeste Yacoboni joins Rainbow Vision at 6pm PT, 7pm MT, 8pm CT, 9pm MT to discuss her new book, How Do You Pray? She was guided to ask the world, "How do you pray?" She reached out to family and friends, then to leading figures from all walks of life and schools of thought like Arvol Looking Horse, Lama Surya Das, Dr. Patch Adams, Dan Millman, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Margaret Starbird and many others. Culled from those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of prayers, essays, and offerings that encourage readers to contemplate the intention of prayer in their own life.
Composed essentially of prayers and short biographies of its 129 contributors (leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions ranging fro Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim any particular walk of faith). How Do You Pray is an interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity.
In our stressful world,prayers teach us faith, forgivenss, compassion and patience. Prayers can also produce miracles.

Have you ever been bullied? No one enjoys that. When people are mean to us, it hurts us and can make us angry or sad. When things happen in life that we don’t like, we might pray to God for Him to stop the bad things from happening or to stop people from being mean to us.
But the truth is--praying to God is not just about having Him change situations or how other people treat us. There’s another very important reason we pray to God. When we pray to God, it doesn’t just have the power to change others; it has the power to change who we are.
When we pray and remain connected with God, He shapes us and changes our hearts to be more like His.
Question: Why do you think God wants us to keep praying for things even if it takes a while for Him to answer our prayers??
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Psalm 4:1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!You have given me relief when I was in distress.Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
Colossians 4:2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving
James 5:16: Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working
Have you ever prayed out loud in front of other people? It can be tough at times to know what to say when speaking with God.
Prayer means truthfully talking and listening to God. It doesn’t have to be complicated. You don’t have to show off with big words. What’s most important is that when you talk to God, you speak to Him from your heart. Be honest and open; get to know Him like you would when you’re talking to a best friend.
The more you pray and speak to God, the closer you’ll become to Him. And when you become closer to Him, you’ll know His love and know God better.
Questions: How do you usually pray to God? What do you usually talk to Him about?
Matthew 6:7-15 7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.9Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,
15but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Romans 8:26 26Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Today is the first day of our four day Reading Plan on How To Pray
This four-day reading plan for youth explores what Scripture has to say about prayer. Each day we will read a passage of Scripture
Every day we talk to people--our family, our friends, and students in class. Is God a part of the list of people you talk to every day?
Prayer is exactly that. It means talking and listening to God. People need to communicate in order to have a relationship with others. We talk to God in prayer every day so that we can have a relationship with Him. That’s why prayer is important.
Even when people do pray and talk to God, they don’t always realize that God actually speaks back. He desires to be in constant communication with us throughout our days, weeks, and entire lives.
Question: How often do you talk to God?
God is always available to hear us when we pray. He listens anytime we talk to Him. That never changes. But what we cannot always predict is how God will answer our prayers when He listens to us.
He may not answer our prayers at the exact moment we want, or in the way that we think it should happen. But that doesn’t mean He isn’t still in control, and working throughout the entire world.
God doesn’t ask us to only trust Him when we don’t understand everything that’s going on. He asks us to trust Him always, believing that He is our friend who is taking care of us in ways we don’t even know.
Describe a time when God answered your prayer.
What did you learn about God from the way He answered your prayer?
Psalm 145:18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,to all who call on him in truth.
Jeremiah 33:2-3 “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: 3Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

This week on Coach Cafe, THE Self-Empowerment Place to Meet, Estra and Kathleen welcome Celeste Yacoboni, author of How Do You Pray? as their guest.
Most of us grew up introduced to some form of prayer. As we evolve, so do our prayers; as our prayers evolve, so do we. Praying means different things to different people, and there are many diverse ways to connect with the Divine. Celeste Yacoboni was guided to ask the world, "How do you pray?" She reached out to family and friends and then to leading figures from all walks of life and schools of thought. How Do You Pray? is an interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity. The 129 contributors range in spiritual traditions from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim any particular faith. Some of the contributors include: Matthew Fox, Gregg Braden, Byron Katie, Marianne Williamson, Masuro Emoto, Lama Surya Das, Patch Adams and Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi. This show and the book will inspire you to consider what it means to you to pray---how do you connect with the Greater Consciousness? "How we pray is as diverse as each being on our planet..."
