Prayer 101: What Every Intercessor Needs to Know

New Hope Publishers, 2008 - 190 sidor
Church members today are presented with countless opportunities to become intercessors. Visit any church, and note that the weekly prayer list offers opportunities for believers to lift up the body of Christ through prayer related to healing, job situations, financial problems, family issues, and a variety of other life events. Often, however, members have a desire to participate in prayer but are intimidated by the commitment and feel they need help in knowing how to pray. That's where experienced author and prayer leader Elaine Helms can help. In Prayer 101, Elaine offers support for local church prayer ministry leaders looking for a tool to train and equip the body of Christ in the area of prayer. Elaine's passion is to help new believers--as well as any Christians who have a dry or nonexistent prayer life--grow in their knowledge of prayer. Readers will find simple principles they can put into action. These simple truths and opportunities for practice will help transform timid pray-ers into enthusiastic, active, praying Christians. Prayer 101 helps readers understand several prayer principles: priority and patterns of prayer; persistence in prayer; the difference between needs and wants; and how to pray for contentment, relationships, health and healing, and persons in positions of authority both within and outside the church. Readers will finish the book with an increased confidence in praying, both in private and in public.
