BIB106 Prayer I – 1 Unit
Brother Kenneth Copeland says that “Prayer is the foundation for every successful Christian endeavor.” However, not prayer that is prayed just any way. The disciples understood this when the said to Jesus, “Teach us to pray.” While Jesus did teach prayer principles, He also said, “watch and pray.” Therefore, when it comes to prayer, some things are better taught while others are better “caught.” This class will provide instructions for things taught and provide demonstrations of what must be “caught.” Both will be presented as they pertain to the governing principles of Spirit-led prayer.

There is nothing that cannot either be prevented, changed, or overcome through the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man.
