"How to Pray Badly" -- great idea for a lesson on prayer

Sometimes it's effective to teach someone the truth by helping them think about what's not true, or help them develop effective practices by calling out ineffective practices.

Tim Challies' wonderful article "How to Pray Badly" would be an excellent outline for a lesson on prayer, using this idea. He gives details on:

Selfish Motives
Turning Away From Scripture
Unforgiving Hearts
Family Discord
Unconfessed Sin

There's plenty of Scripture to work from, as well. Check it out, and at least put this article in your files for future lessons.
