These notes are designed to accompany Corey Russell’s class of the same name. God created mankind out of His desire for a partner. When mankind fell from this glory, God sent His Son to intercede and reconcille man with God. Through Christ we have joined His eternal ministry of intercession. We are now “”partakers of the heavenly calling”” (Heb. 3:1) in this age and in the age to come, crying out to see justice released, Jesus return, and His government established in the earth. This course focuses on ushering in revival through prayer, and studying the lives of great biblical and historical intercessors and how they changed history through the power of prayer. The Church must understand the urgency of the hour and the great need for a people of prayer to emerge. We are called to equip believers in the privilege of praying for Godís will to be done on earth.
