Our task here is to familiarize listeners with foundational biblical prayers upon which to build their prayer lives. The goal is personal prayer, both individual and corporate, that develops out of biblical prayer. The Psalms and the Lord's Prayer are the basic texts, supplemented by other biblical prayers. Lecture titles are as follows;

  1. Jesus Prays
  2. The Theology of Prayer (by James Houston)
  3. Psalm 1 & Psalm 2
  4. Psalm 3 and the Language of Prayer
  5. The Embodiment of Prayer in Life: Narratives
  6. The Rhythms of Life and Prayer
  7. The Sacramental Dimensions of Prayer
  8. The Community of Prayer
  9. The Dark Side of Prayer
  10. The Inclusivity of the Praying Life
  11. The End of Prayer: Praise and Glory
