Frequently Asked Questions:
What’s the Bible Study topic? Topics vary; this year we are studying, “Principles of Prayer.” Eph. 6:18, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with ALL KINDS OF PRAYERS and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Did you know that most people lump all prayer together as if all prayer is the same. But the Bible teaches that there are different kinds of prayers. Here’s a list of the many different Kinds of Prayer found in the New Testament that we are currently studying: Prayer of Faith; Prayer of Agreement; Prayer of Thanksgiving; Prayer of Worship; Prayer of Submission; Prayer of Committal; Prayer of Consecration & Dedication; United Prayer; Conversational Prayer; Praying in the Spirit; Prayer of Binding & Loosing; Prayer of Intercession; and more. If we want our prayers to be effective and if we want to live victoriously in these last days, then, we need to learn how to pray according to God’s Word. So, If your prayer life needs a boost, I want to encourage you to join us each week and begin learning what the Bible says about the different kinds of prayer God has given us in His Word.
