Welcome to Prayer University. On this site you will find courses on prayer and revival that will equip and challenge you and your friends to go deeper into prayer and to pray more effectively. We encourage you to check us out regularly as we will continue to add new courses.
PrayerU is a ministry of Harvest Prayer Ministries, a ministry that exists to equip the local church to become a House of Prayer for all nations, releasing God’s power for revival and finishing the task of world evangelization. We work to transform lives by teaching prayer.
Currently we only offer 5 courses, but more will be added regularly. We encourage you to register so you can stay informed of any new offerings. Eventually there will be both video courses and webinars under three separate tracks: Personal Prayer, Roadmap to a Praying Church and Revival. For now, you purchase each course individually, and view it at your own pace online.
Here are the current courses we offer.
We all know that the Church needs more of God's presence and power. We understand that unless God pours out His Spirit on us in a fresh way the Church will continue to drift and be ineffective in reaching a lost world. But how do we pray effectively and passionately for that fresh outpouring? In this course, Dr. Dave Butts, chairman of America's National Prayer Committee and founder and president of Harvest Prayer Ministries, shares some powerful thoughts on what to pray and how to sustain prayer for revival. The course is based on his book. When God Shows Up.
Course Includes: 5 lessons each with a short video, plus a pdf download of the book When God Shows Up
