First, we've got to have a goal: To become a man or woman of prayer.
What does that even mean? It means that prayer is a central part of your daily experience. It's a defining characteristic. It means that you are a person who walks with God, led by the Spirit, abiding in Christ. A person of prayer is following in Christ's steps, going to the Father night and day, in all circumstances and conditions of the heart.
The goal of this booklet, which is a companion study guide to A Journey to Victorious Praying: Finding Discipline and Delight in Your Prayer Life by Bill Thrasher, is to assist in the journey toward becoming a person who prays.
It is set up in an eight-week format (five days per week). However, you can use it however you deem fit. Sprint through it in just a few weeks or mosey along for a few months--however you choose to work through these disciplines, ask God to guide your journey.
This booklet can work well for individual, partner, or group study. No matter whom you choose to share this journey with, make sure to pray for each other often as you seek God's best for your prayer lives.
When you know someone is a person of prayer, it is easy to be taught by them regarding prayer. My friend Bill Thrasher is one of those people.

I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Thrasher that, 'In God's kindness He instructs us how to process our anxiety'. I pray that this book blesses many.
