On September 9 and 10, come learn how you can pray for others more confidently.  Become emboldened in praying for others by learning about the cycle of prayer.  Praying through praise, surrender, repentance, and asking for the Lord’s leading will aid you in approaching God on behalf of others in a powerful and simple way. Fred and Esther Leonard will instruct you through the SHAPE program that aids you in learning how to read scripture and mediating/listening to the Holy Spirit. Fred and Esther will coach you in a practical session where you will apply the concepts immediately. 

The hope of this training is that you will walk away feeling challenged and equipped to incorporate intercessory prayer in your daily life. Also during the prayer training, we will train you on how to become a festival friend and a prayer tent worker at CityFest East Texas.
