How to Pray Effectively


In “How to pray effectively” we teach how valuable, easy, and simple is a life of prayer. When we learn to pray, not religiously but from an intimate personal relationship with God knowing how to pray in different situations that may arise, the believer’s lifestyle becomes attractive and exciting, full of hope for what God will do through those times they spend with Him.

The disciples didn’t ask Jesus to teach them how to heal the sick or how to do miracles, but to teach them how to pray because they knew that the source of everything they saw in His life came from His prayer time.

When we have a lifestyle of prayer, connected to God and guided by the Holy Spirit, our daily living becomes exciting and full of satisfaction.

In “How To Pray Effectively” we teach about the different types of prayer (more than fifteen varieties), we explain intercession, spiritual warfare, and more. We answer important questions such as: Why should I pray if God knows everything? Why don’t I receive answers to my prayers sometimes? How to know the will of God to pray correctly?, and more.

This class will inspire you to live a life of intimacy with God, you will learn to dwell in safety, to know how to treat spiritually important issues; how to use your authority, how to defeat the enemy, how to establish through your intercession the will of God on Earth, among other topics.
