Why should you subscribe?

We learn to pray, then actually pray, and we teach others to pray.

The disciples came to Jesus and asked Him “Lord, teach us to pray.” He modeled praying in front of His followers. He told them to pray, taught them how - and promised to answer those prayers.

If you are asking that same question today you are in the right place. We help you pray at least 5 minutes a day for 30 days even if you get stuck after “Heavenly Father.”

About Epaphras Prays

I started my journey into the prayer room in 1998, and I couldn’t even get through five minutes. Our church held prayer meetings three times every day for an hour each. I started go to some of those, heard how they prayed and began reading and studying what the Bible and other teachers said about intercession.

Since those early days, I’ve prayed in all kinds of prayer closets, in private, in public, with and in front of others. I started inviting others to join me, and began teaching them abut what I was doing.

That’s where the early material for this Newsletter came from. In the several years since, that material has grown as I learn more and more and pass that along.

Now I am fervent about prayer and seeing more of God’s people pray more.

I hope you’ll consider being one of them.

Grace and peace,
