A Note of Introduction
God has always wanted a relationship with His people and over the next twelve weeks we will be examining how several of God’s people communicated with Him through various means of prayer. We will begin with Moses and finish with the early church. During this time, you will be given many opportunities to expand your concept of prayer and to grow your prayer life. The purpose of this study is to equip you so that you will not only be a pray-er, but also live a praying life.
The men and women of God that have done mighty things for Him have always been mighty in prayer. Prayer is our most formidable weapon in the spiritual battlefield, but we too often enter the battle without it. God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world, the better the world will be and the mightier our forces in the battle against evil will be.
In each lesson we will look at God’s person, their mission or purpose and their prayers. We will learn how their prayers moved and shaped them and the world around them. We will also see how prayer does the same for us today. At the beginning of each lesson will be a short prayer emphasis for the week. Use this during your prayer time to let God reveal what He wants you to learn that week. At the end of each lesson you will find a page for prayer journaling. Each week, journal as much or as little as you care to, but please journal each week. This is a great avenue for you to see how prayer has affected your life during this study.
This workbook is written using the New International Version. You should be able to answer all the questions by either examining the text or examining your life. Please be sure to pray before you begin each lesson.
My prayer for you is that God reveals more of Himself to you during these next few weeks and that you glorify Him through a powerful prayer life.
