Upon completion, the student will have a clear idea of both how to prepare himself and how to communicate effectively with God in prayer, in a way that pleases God and gives Him glory!
The Hidden Life of Prayer assumes the believer is serious about going further with God, and proceeds from there to give an in-depth review of how to pray, step-by-step. The first portion of “How to Pray” is devoted to preparations for prayer, in place, time of day, circumstances, heart vulnerability, and in a mind focused on God and totally honest before Him. The second portion is very specific about several useful steps in effective prayer: worship and adoration, confession of all sin from deep sorrowful repentance, and supplication (our petitions themselves). The course concludes with the results of prayer: holiness, growth, peace, increased usefulness and service, and God’s specific answers.

“This Hidden Life of Prayer course has put a stop to all that I am doing – God has made me read it three times! I’ve never seen anything like this before in what God is doing to me. I read, I pray, and I do whatever comes up next on each page. The book has come alive. Everything in the book is things I do every day, but never could understand. So now it is victory after victory!” - Represa, California
“This course is a gift from God and is opening up what was a dull life of prayer for me. I was worried that something was amiss - I am now being blessed by greater understanding and a much better prayer life!” - Salem, Oregon
