Prayer--Christianity--Study and teaching
The purpose of this project is to create a culture of prayer at Grace Church of the Valley, Kingsburg, California, by equipping members to pray consistently and biblically. Chapter 1 presents the ministry context of GCV, along with the goals and rationale for this project. Chapter 2 provides an exegesis of four passages of Scripture (Rom 12:12; 1 Tim 2:1-2; Col 4:2; Eph 6:18) to show that devotion to prayer individually and corporately is the means by which Christians receive what is needed both physically and spiritually. Chapter 3 gives practical and historical evidence that supports the purpose of this project by demonstrating a call to prayer in the examples and teaching of Jesus and Paul. Chapter 4 provides details of the project, its creation, course curriculum, and implementation at GCV. Chapter 5 provides an evaluation of the project to determine whether the course curriculum effectively equipped participants to pray consistently and biblically.
