Christ Centered Teaching from the Model Prayer He Taught His Disciples
The Praying to Change Your Life course includes this student guide which is designed to provide instruction, thought provoking prayer exercises that stimulate a spirit of expectancy and a prayerful attitude of awe for God’s majesty and His omnipotent power to perform His promise to meet our needs and to hear and answer our prayers. Personal stories and powerful testimonies of miraculous answers to specific prayers are used to help the reader experience a more effective prayer life. The power guide material encourages small group participation and practical personal application.
Pastor Cadwell identifies and carefully develops six different areas of concern from the model prayer the Lord Jesus used to tech His disciples to pray.
• Intimate Praise and Worship
• Praying God’s Will
• Praying Your Needs
• Praying for Forgiveness
• Praying for Protection
• Kingdom Praise and Worship
There are also sample model prayers drawn from the scriptures that follow the pattern mentioned above with suggestion for personalizing.
Suzette’s writing reveals the vibrant reality of the potential and power of a life intentional about incorporating prayer, praise, and worship at its core. I strongly recommend the book for every believer desirous of improving the effectiveness of their prayer life.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinion expressed is my own.
