I’m really psyched to announce that I’m offering a new online prayer class through this website. I’m calling it “Pray Like a Reformer,” and registration is open through Friday October 12, 2018.
Pray Like a Reformer
Martin Luther and John Calvin were both passionate about prayer. They both thought it was basic to the authentic Christian life.
Prayer builds the intimate connection with Christ that we need to live the life of faith in a challenging world.
Since Jesus himself commands us to pray, having a life of prayer is a basic form of obedience.
Prayer is the basic evidence that we have faith at all — you call out to God for help, and that shows you believe God is there and trust God will hear you.
Luther and Calvin will help you by drawing on core biblical teachings on prayer.
- You’ll grow more confident in prayer, knowing that you are talking to God about things God wants you to talk about.
- You’re conversation with God will be richer because you’ll learn to be more deeply honest in prayer.
An Online Prayer Class
This six-week online class is intended to jump start your prayer life by diving deep into the ways of prayer taught by these two most influential theologians of the Protestant Reformation.
- If you are new to prayer, you’ll build solid foundations.
- If your just need a fresh start, you’ll form helpful habits.
For the last couple of years I’ve taught online prayer classes in Advent and Lent. These are the seasons the Church emphasizes renewal — but they are sooooooo busy.
This class is offered in the fall, and will be done by Thanksgiving. That’s when you have time to focus on renewal.
- Weekly video lectures.
- Manageable fun readings. partly from my award winning book Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History’s Best Teachers.
- Guided prayer “homework” totaling 15-20 minutes per day, putting into practice what Luther and Calvin teach.
- A private discussion forum for encouragement and shared exploration of prayer.
And with the Premium Level, you get two one-on-one consultations with me on your prayer life and the course.
I hope you’ll check it out. It would be great to have you in the class! Click the button for full info:
