Learning Prayer

Speaker:  Mark S Mirza
Learning Prayer thru the Fun of a Novel is how Mark S Mirza introduces readers to his new fiction book The Pray-ers. Or as a Home School mom in Nashville noted earlier this year, teaching prayer thru the example of others. Mark strongly focuses upon praying scripture back to God teaching that the Word of God needs to be our direction on why we pray and what we pray. In his presentation Mark will introduce you to several prayer classics reading from A Threefold Cord: a devotional book from the 1830’s and the children’s prayer book: Rainbows of Promises from the 1880’s. Mark will contrast Biblical Prayer to what we are seeing and hearing today from the churches in Kenya to American TV: name it and claim it. Mark notes the focus on self.
