In mid-October, Ruth and I have the privilege of leading and training Christians in prayer in LaCrescent, Minnesota.
The week is titled, “Breakthrough Prayer– Carrying Prayer Everywhere.”
Here’s a breakdown:
Saturday, October 15th- 8:00am Prayer Breakfast at LaCrescent UMC, followed by a brief prayer training on prayer walking and prayer mapping. A 30-45 minute prayer walk will follow immediately into one or more of the neighborhoods in LaCrescent.
Sunday, October 16th– 12:30pm Training on Prayer Evangelism. How to simply use prayer and a Bible as an opening to share the gospel with a friend or stranger. Specially tabbed Bibles will be provided during this easy, hands-on training that's been effectively used to lead many to Jesus Christ across Indiana, and other states across our nation!
Monday, October 17th- 6:30pm An evening of praying for/with First Responders, other churches, and others within the community. We may travel to a local fire station to personally pray, on site, with First Responders.
Tuesday, October 18th– 4:30pm Prayer training on ways to pray Scripture. Prayer can bring Scripture to life, and Scripture can also bring prayer to life! During this training, we'll open the Word of God to see a variety of ways David prayed through the Psalms, and also how New Testament writers prayed. We'll also discuss and practice praying God’s promises in Scripture back to God.
Wednesday, October 19th- 6:30pm Worship-based Prayer. The Lord's Prayer begins with a statement of worship, yet many Christians skip worship-based prayer during personal, and corporate, times of prayer. We'll observe the difference between prayers of thanksgiving and worship; discussing the differences between seeking God's face versus His hand. We’ll then model, and practice seeking His face through worship-based prayer.
*All events will meet at LaCrescent UMC (unless otherwise specified).
Unique resources, to deepen and enhance your prayer life, will be offered as a part of each prayer training throughout the week.
I hope you’ll join us!
