A Prayer training experience that begins with prayer basics, hindrances to prayer, and weapons of our spiritual warfare. It is not just learning about prayer.  It will challenge you, equip you, encourage you, and empower you to increase the effectiveness of your personal prayer life.

Basic Training – often called boot camp – prepares recruits for all elements of service: physical, mental and emotional. It gives service members the basic tools necessary to perform the roles that will be asked of them for the duration of their tour.” It is the bridge between what you were and what you are becoming.

Isn’t it time we had a Spiritual Boot Camp for spiritual disciplines and prayer? Paul hinted at that need in I Corinthians 9:24-27. He was referring to the need for strict training and applying it to our spiritual lives.

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last. Therefore, I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.”

As believers it is time for us to get our battle plan ready. It is time for us to strategically prepare and fight for our homes and families. Prayer is a powerful weapon that is absolutely necessary to ensure our victory in this spiritual battle.
