Beit Tefillati: An Introduction to the Places and Promises of Prayer

Instructor: Rob Vanhoff

This mini-course is an introduction to the Scripture’s overall portrayal of prayer in its various aspects, as it has pertained to the lives of God’s covenant people from ancient times unto the present. Its aim is to provide students an opportunity to obtain greater clarity on what prayer is and what it is not, and how proper prayer is a crucial obligation for Yeshua’s flock. The Bible is therefore the central text of this study.

Among the desired outcomes of this mini-course are: an encouragement for participants to strengthen their own personal prayer life, a refined appreciation of its precious value, a heightened commitment to persevere in the discipline of Biblical prayer.

I encourage you to take notes throughout these lectures, with an emphasis on capturing personal reflections. Occasionally pausing the video to hand-write ideas and questions greatly increases engagement and retention. You can use your own notebook or download the Session worksheets provided.
