We're slightly moving away from our syllabus listing for Thursday, April 2. For this session, closely and carefully read only the Foster, chapter 3 - Prayer. This is a very significant reading. Again, give it a close and careful read. Then, journal the following:
1. Review the references early in the chapter to those who "viewed prayer as the main business of their lives" - Martin Luther, John Wesley, David Brainerd, Adoniram Judson, John Hyde, and others. Find brief biographical information on one of these individuals. Insert this information in your journal with Foster's statement about that individual's prayer life.
2. From this chapter create 3 fill-in-the-blank statements which we'll use as questions later. Here are some examples on how to make it look. Do include the page number and locaton:
A. We are working with God to determine the future. (page 35, last paragraph)
B. The beginning point in learning to pray for others is to listen for guidance. (page 39, middle)
3. And, . . . from our brief solitude exercise during Tuesday's class, journal your experience and what matters were brought to your mind as you were quiet before God. How did this exercise go for you? What "activity" did you do? Be honest . . . How did you use your phone? Any other thoughts/insights?
