 All three of the books are available on Amazon.com.  The total cost on Amazon.com 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.

The Podcast for Lesson 2 of the Praying Together Course has been completed and is posted.  The link to it is in the Syllabus under Lesson 2.

Comment by Lewis Turner on November 3, 2012 at 1:40pm

The main text for the course, title, is actually "The Power of Praying Together".  It is written by Stormie Omartian with Jack Hayford.  -- If a local Christian Bookstore cannot order it, it should be available on Amazon.com or other similar service.  Hope this helps those seeking to obtain the text. 

Comment by Lewis Turner on October 19, 2012 at 6:54pm

A brief note for the Praying  Together Class.  I will be developing podcasts for each lesson.  The podcast for Lesson 1 is posted, and the link is in the syllabus.  It will take time to develop a podcast for each lesson in the course, but with the Help of our Lord, they will be don.

It is my heart desire that they will help all of you be able to either review past lessons that you studied, or to work the course.

Blessings.

On September 24th @ 2pm central time, the Praying Together Class will be hosting a conference call.  The agenda is listed below.  This call gives opportunity to discuss the ‘Praying for Government Lesson’.  This lesson is very important in light of the upcoming elections in the United States of America.  We may also have time to briefly answer questions about previous lessons in the course. 

 

Most importantly, it will give opportunity for the class to pray together for our Nation.

 

Call number for the conference call: 712-432-0031  / -- when prompted, enter code: 225781#

 

The Agenda

  • sharing about the Praying for Government lesson—

 

  • We are open to discussing a past lesson—If you have questions about a past lesson, it always help to submit them ahead of time.

 

  • We will be praying for the United States of America and the important elections coming up.  

 

I encourage as many of you as possible to set aside time for this important conference call. 

If you know you can be on the call, please let us know.  THANKS!

Comment by Lewis Turner on August 7, 2012 at 4:58pm

To all members of the Praying Together Class:

Anytime we have a major election in our nation, many wonder how they should vote.  This lesson, just posted, on Praying for Government and Nation, does not tell anyone how to vote, but challenges us to search the scriptures as the Bereans did in Acts chapter 17, and encourages us to seek God’s wisdom in deciding how to vote concerning issues in upcoming elections.  

 

I encourage you to take the time to study the lesson (not just read it) and work the reflection questions. 

Comment by Lewis Turner on July 2, 2012 at 8:28am

Note to all in the Praying Together Class:  To help those who started the class late, we will be posting the reflection questions to the lessons in the course in sequence of the lessons--IE Lesson 2, then Lesson 3 and so forth.  The postings will be about 2-3 weeks apart. When they are posted--everyone, including those who completed the course will see them.  Those who already completed the course may still want to share additional thoughts.  That would be encouraging to everyone.  

It is our desire to use this method to help those who came in later in the course. 

Blessings to all how have and are taking time to work each lesson.

Comment by Lewis Turner on April 29, 2012 at 3:01pm

Angela--For those who started the course last year, we finished the module on Praying Together--BUT--FOR those who signed up later, the course is STILL ON!!!

All the lessons are posted, so just go back through the postings and start at the beginning.  I and others are around to answer questions.  I highly encourage you to work a reflection question.  They are there to help you and when you share your thoughts with us -- it also encourages others.

There are a number of people in your category--so I encourage you to move ahead and work the lessons.---If you and others want something to help you stay on track--I will work out something.  Let me know.  I am excited that you and others joined in. 

Blessings
