To prepare our local church in Newport News, Virginia to launch and man a 24/7 prayer ministry, I prepared lessons on prayer and then taught them during the Church Training hour on Sunday nights. We wanted 168 people, each willing to pray one hour a week around the clock. We wanted to become a truly praying church. It took six months to write and teach. I never dreamed that one day the lessons would be organized into a prayer seminar workbook and would traverse the world in many, many languages! But that is what God did!
