We are happy to announce that our East Region is having its first biannual Conference devoted to prayer! We are so excited that this is happening. It is the next natural step after Bruce Latshaw completed his prayer-saturation workshop in all 7 Areas of our Region this past June. This conference will serve veteran intercessors who want to deepen their prayer effectiveness and prayer newbies who want learn the basics of biblical prayer. It will release vision and training for church-saturating prayer and for dynamic personal intercession.
There will be times of worship, practicing various forms of prayer, kingdom prayer training, networking, and personal prophetic ministry.
Main Session Speakers will be Jan Strout, Don Andreson and Bruce Latshaw.
There will be six Breakout Workshops Sessions.
Main Sessions and Workshops will address various prayer topics: keys to kingdom praying, protecting your church through spiritual warfare, habits of the successful intercessor, principals of dynamics corporate praying, and others.
The $25 registration fee will bring with it a complimentary copy of Don Andreson's excellent book on prayer training, Power to Pray: God's Immense Purposes for Our Simple Prayers
We are now able to provide childcare at this event.

6:30pm – 7:20pm – Registration
7:30pm–9:30pm Main Session One
Worship, time of intercessory prayer
Teaching by Bruce Latshaw - Spiritual Warfare? Really? Yes!
- In this teaching, Bruce explains biblically how to use "the weapons of our warfare" in prayer to release God's Ps. 91 protection for individual believers, families, and churches. He also shows how "strategic level" spiritual warfare as popularly taught is not an appropriate arena for the local church. If you've been soured on "spiritual warfare," this session will bring clarity and fresh vision to the practice of appropriate, authoritative prayer to defeat the schemes of the enemy.
