Welcome to the newest podcast of Denver Institute for Faith & Work: Teach Us To Pray! Hosted by Jeff Hoffmeyer, Vice President of Advancement, this podcast seeks to focus on the practice of prayer through scripture as a primary way to know, trust, and rest in God in our daily work and life.

Episode 1: Prayer is, simply, talking to God. How, though, do we make the move from talking about God, to talking to God? Psalm 23 answers this question. The dark valleys of our lives are occasions to claim the central promise of Scripture, “Thou art with me.”


On prayer and work:

“In verse four David stops talking about the Shepherd and starts talking to the Shepherd. And no wonder that he does so in that moment, recalling some dark and difficult time. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou. Thou art with me.”
