IFD236 – Lord, It’s Boring in My Prayer Closet: How to Revitalize Your Prayer Life
Course Dates: January 16 – March 3, 2017
If prayer is so important, why is it so hard? Many Christians struggle to overcome boredom and listlessness in prayer. During this seven week study, participants will examine their own prayer life and be challenged to experience prayer in some new ways that will revitalize their prayer life.
Geared for those new to prayer as well as seasoned prayer warriors, this course helps students understand why God gave us prayer and discover their “personal prayer sphere” and their personal “prayer passion.” Students will use scriptures in a new way to form prayers and prayer declarations, learn ways to fix a prayer life that is offline, and explore related topics such as spiritual warfare and fasting. Instructor Sandra Chambers will share her own struggles and victories as she has sought to become more engaged with her prayer life.
