We are excited about a new semester here at BJU- new in its timing, new in its content (new classes!), new in its experience of God's mercies (Lam 3:22-23), and new in its expectations of God's work in and through us in our discipleship groups.
Dr. Pettit spoke to us last semester about How to Pray 15 Minutes a Day, his recently reformatted and republished work which has been made available for us for free as a downloadable PDF here.
I am personally thankful for this booklet. After finishing grad school and becoming an Assistant Pastor at Inter-City Baptist Church near Detroit, Michigan, then Evangelist Steve Pettit came to our church for evangelistic meetings. Before the evening services, he did a series of seminars in which he taught through the concepts included in this booklet. He knew then and we know today that effective prayer is necessary for effective work in seeing people evangelized and discipled.
I know this booklet will be a help to you. I would encourage you to make use of it in your discipleship groups as well.
