This teaching discusses prayer fundamentals; the four critical elements: at-home daily prayer, the church at prayer, intercessory prayer and prayer evangelism; and how to apply each of these to create a great awakening in yourself, your church, your sphere influence and the world.
The Personal Study Guide with Group It Discussion Section and Daily Devotions is a companion to the book.
The flow of the study guide is as follows:
- Read It – Read each chapter.
- Review It – An idea and fact review. Grasping the major concepts.
- Pray About It – Moving from the head to the heart: What is God saying to me in the ideas in this book? If these things are true, what are their change implications?
- Redirect – Moving from the head and heart to our feet and hands: What is God saying to me about these ideas and their behavioral implications for my life?
- Rate It – A rating tool to measure your growth.
- Overachievers – Additional goals.
