A Day In God's Court is an in-depth seminar that teaches the importance of a proper and effective prayer life for the Christian and clearly demonstrates the spiritual impact every Christian can generate through prayer. Often someone comments that the prayer seminar ministry is unique as far as its thrust, format, and content are concerned. Since 1977, the burden to help believers, regardless of denominational affiliation, in their prayer lives has become increasingly intense in the life of the seminar leader, Dr. Henry.
Seminars have been conducted with Baptists (myriad groups, including churches in the American Baptist Convention, Association of Conservative Baptists, General Baptists, Free Will Baptists, General Association of Regular Baptists, Southern Baptists, and independent Baptists), Christian and Missionary Alliance, Brethren, Free Brethren, Grace Brethren, Free Methodist, Southern Methodist, United Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, Mennonite, Apostolic, Assembly of God, Church of God, Church of God of Prophecy, Conservative Congregational, Christian, Pentecostal, Evangelical Free, Lutheran, Pentecostal Free Will Baptists, Reformed, Christian Reformed, Quakers (Friends), Salvation Army, and independent Bible churches.
• Establish prayer as a daily priority.
• Organize your praying following a biblical pattern.
• Worship, praise, confess, and thank the Lord.
• Pray for yourself, as well as others.
There have been seminars in Bible colleges and liberal arts colleges/universities. Prayer seminars have been conducted for state-wide men's retreats, state denominational annual meetings, summer camp meetings and/or retreats for special groups, such as pastors. Seminars have been conducted on military bases and in prisons. Not only does the prayer seminar stand alone in its impact as a special event, it is excellent preparation for evangelistic efforts, revival meetings, lay witness programs, stewardship emphases (including building programs and budget subscription drives), mission projects, and leadership development focus.
The format calls for Dr. Henry's spending six hours teaching on the subject of prayer to everyone sixth grade and above. Although most of the seminars are conducted on Sundays, the leadership is encouraged to schedule to the best advantage of the most people. Many pastors have testified that the impact of the one-day seminar in the lives of their people has meant more than a week's revival meetings. We praise God for the great privilege of serving God's church and His people in this ministry.
Although Dr. Henry has recently conducted the 1,307th prayer seminar and has logged two million miles of travel, he exclaims that he is more excited about prayer now than when he conducted the first seminar and would gladly conduct a seminar each day if such scheduling were feasible. There have been seminars in forty-six states, the District of Columbia, and in fifty nations: Argentina, Australia, the Bahamas, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, England, Fiji Islands, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Lesotho, Malaysia, Mozambique, Mexico, Namibia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Okinawa, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Swaziland, Switzerland, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Ukraine, Venezuela, and Zambia. The Prayer Seminar Workbook has been translated into many languages, including, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Russian, Romanian, Malay, Telugu, Sotho, Thai, Indonesian, Hausa/Fulani, Ibo, Korean, Swahili, French, Zulu, Urdu and others.
One of Dr. Henry's dreams is to conduct prayer seminars in all fifty states by the end of his ministry. Please pray about doors being opened in 2008 in the following states listed where there have been no prayer seminars: Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Utah.
