Since prayer is the warm blood of a Christian life, preachers need to proclaim its joys and face its challenges.  This seminar will examine prayer – praise, thanksgiving, confession, lament, petition (including intercession)–through selected readings and discussion.  The seminar goal is to revive good preaching about the most basic of Christian spiritual practices.
