Prayer Life" draws upon the teachings available on this website.
It's objectives are as follows:
introduce each session with highlights of other prayer ministries
on the web that serve the Body of Christ through prayer strategies
and resources aimed at impacting the United States and the world
with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
present a biblical overview of prayer that demonstrates how prayer
encompasses both a living and working relationship with God by
employing the models of prayer as communication, communion,
cooperation, and combat.
emphasize the need for an effective prayer life if one is to have
a fruitful ministry and to demonstrate how devotion in prayer is
born out of a life of abiding in Christ.
help Christians grow in their prayer lives by establishing a time and place
for daily prayer and by incorporating humility, thanksgiving, godly zeal, and
spiritual watchfulness into their prayers.
spur believers to strategic prayer by presenting prayer models such as
lighthouses of prayer and prayerwalking.
