The class will be presented as part of a group titled ‘Praying Together Course’ with a lesson presented in an out line form.  The Title of the lesson that we will be reviewing lesson will be in the location where discussion questions are in a group, then the Lesson material will be listed below it.  Following the lesson there will be some reflective questions to answer.  I as the leader and facilitator, encourage you to take some time and study the material, and jot a few thought down related to the reflective questions.  The more you put into the class, the more you will learn.  Sharing your thoughts also helps challenge all of us. 


When you study the material, if there is a question or a point that needs clarifying, kindly let me know. 


If a lot of discussion develops on a lesson, time will be allowed for that discussion, rather than move on to stay on a time schedule.


There are a few ground rules that we need to remember:

  • Each of us is at a different level of prayer.  We need to remember this and be gracious in our approach. 
  • Some may approach prayer from a different doctrinal perspective.  This should be respected.
  • Discussion is encouraged, especially in a way that each of us shares with others, items about the lesson presented.  Questions may come up that are different than the lesson.  Those questions are also important, and may be best asked by leaving a message with the instructor.

Now to move forward with an opening prayer for all of us involved in the course: 


Father, This is your course.  I invite you Holy Spirit to guide all of us and the discussions in this course.  May we learn your truths that will help us in our relationship with you, as we pray individually and with others.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Dear Friends who have worked this course,

Working to keep my heart in tune with the Lord, when I find a topic, such as the discussion I posted today on Pray.Network, I search for scripture--not to just support or disprove, but that reflects how God sees the issue--in this case--what keeps us apart or disconnected when it comes to prayer.  

I am looking for scripture on this subject--and would appreciate any suggestions that the Lord may bring to your mind.

'thank you for giving this question consideration.

I received the following note with permission to share it.  It comes from a lady I knew growing up.  We went to the same church, then when my family moved away, we lost contact until several years ago—note sure of how-but we reconnected on the internet, and discovered that Patty really loved the Lord.  I share this note hoping some of you will join me in praying with her for the out reach she has in ‘Helping Hurting Women’.  When God helps us, He also helps us reach out to others.  –Will you pray for her outreach??

Here is her note:

A thank you note. You may publish if you like but more importantly we ask your prayers. The more prayers the better :) We need wisdom and our Father's blessing and His protection

Wrote this in the Program Box for your Lesson 9 but then wondered if it would be going 'out there' and not just to  you.  I want you to know, I am encouraged by your lessons as Aug 2 approaches when we begin our 1st Meeting.  Pray the Lord will prepare hearts to come and to receive Jesus...the time is short.  Pray for our safety also, please.


Lewis, thank you for Lessions in Developing Relationships and Prayer.  Our 'Helping Hurting Women' to the community here in Tucson will be blessed by my opportunity, in quick study, these lessons offered by you and provide me with wisdom, strength in God's Word and give me encouragement...thus, I am better prepared to 'Encourage' hurting women that the Lord brings to our meetings.  Please pray for our group and me as a facilitator, that I do God's Will and and Bless Others who may come and be joyfully blessed with the Salvation of Jesus, Messiah! 


Blessings from the Throne of God, our Elohim!

The podcast for Lesson 7 has been posted on Pray!Network.  The link to the podcast is in the Course Syllabus.   These podcasts offer a good chance for all to study the course, and for those who have worked through the course previously, they are a good review of the course.

Looking forward to responses to the lesson in the reflection questions,.
