Recommended Reading:


Principle Reading: The Power of Praying Together by Stormie O’Martian/Jack Hayford, Harvest House Publishers

Additional ReadingPraying With the One You Love, Art Hunt, Multnomah Publishers,    

                           When Children Pray, Cheri Fuller, Multnomah Publishers, Inc



 All three of the books are available on  The total cost on was under $30.00 including shipping.  There may be other sources where the books can be found.


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.

I cannot purchase the books.  Can I still be involved in the online class?
Comment by Pamela Askegaard on February 5, 2011 at 12:38pm
I am on limited fixed income living on a small alimony with child and in the country not working as of yet so not excess income to buy books. I think that I have these already but when my divorce was finalised and had to move my stuff went to storage. Suggestions or helps? Maybe I shouldn't have joined any classes yet.

To all in the 'Praying together Group', here is a link at that may help in finding the text.  Just copy it and post it in your browser.  


If you have an trouble locating the other books, let me know.  I will find a link.  

A note about Art Hunt's book 'Praying with the One You Love--(listed in the syllabus) there are two editions that I am aware of.  The older version is adequate and less costly

I'm so looking forward to this prayer course also.
Comment by Charmaine on February 4, 2011 at 9:10pm
I know what you are saying Cynthia. There are soooo many books on prayer and the correct way to do it that I got to the point where I felt inferior praying with others. I was allowing the enemy to condemn me. I'm looking forward to this study.
Comment by Cynthia Lynn Duvall on February 4, 2011 at 6:33pm
Looking forward to this course, sounds like what I've been searching for.  I'm always perplexed as to why praying with others is difficult, why so many of us who have been Christians a long time struggle with this in our churches...mine, anyway! We have a "church that prays" not yet a "praying church or house of prayer" church, to use the popular lingo.  Our church is a loving, close body but difficult to pull together outside of a service to pray together. I hear others say the same thing. I wonder if this is a problem more in highly developed countries like the U.S...we're too sophisticated, or too busy or???

Hi, what is the complete title of the Stormie O'Martian book. The one I found is out of print on



Comment by Charmaine on February 4, 2011 at 3:28pm
I found all thre of these on for $13.00 shipping included. May be used but I have gotten things before and if they say very good condition it has proven true. They are part of Ebay.
