Leading Public Prayer: To be asked to lead a group of Christ’s people in prayer is a great honor and an equally great responsibility. Anyone who is called upon to lead public prayer may feel anxious and possibly inadequate for such a task. Prayer is something we learn; it is something that can be taught. This course is designed to offer help for novices as well as veteran leaders of prayer as they create and deliver appropriate prayers for those on whose behalf the prayer is offered. This course will explore prayers as an integral part of worship and present the student with an opportunity to grow in the discipline of leading public prayer.
