One of the most powerful things a Christ-follower can learn to do is pray. Yet most people struggle in this area. The goal of the School of Prayer is to provide you with a thorough biblical instruction in the art of prayer, to remove common hindrances to the practice of prayer, and to infuse you with a passion for daily communion with God.
The following six lessons will be explored in this Intermediate training:
- The Art of Spiritual Warfare
- The Church at Prayer
- Congregational or Public Prayer as Every Believer's Duty
- Helping Others Encounter God
- Leading a Concert of Prayer
- Intercessory Worship: The Harp and Bowl
