Preparing for Pentecost

A ten-day prayer guide, for use between Ascension Day and Pentecost, looks at how we can position ourselves to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and then move into praying for renewal, revival, and outpourings of the Holy Spirit which might become the next Great Awakening.

Each day uses the acronym P.R.A.Y as a pattern for our prayers : Praise, Reflect, Ask, and Yield. This prayer guide can be used individually or in a small group setting.

Mission Enabled

A look the essential role that the Holy Spirit has to play in enabling the Church’s mission and evangelism. Beginning with Jesus’ imperative that we should be engaged in evangelism, it then looks at his teaching on the Kingdom of God, his promise to send the Holy Spirit, and then activity of the Holy Spirit in the Early Church and in the Church today.

The booklet concludes with some helpful appendices. One offers a ‘walk of preparation’ which allows time and space for the Holy Spirit to lead. Another tackles what has been for some the contentious question of whether Christians are to be ‘baptised’ or ‘filled’ with the Holy Spirit.

Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit

Beneath the surface of churches’ programs and activities lies the fundamental question of how leaders and churches can be enabled to discern and obediently cooperate with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

This biblically grounded book asserts that many leaders overlook the necessary precondition of cooperating with the empowering will of the Holy Spirit before putting their plans into action. Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit is a highly practical guide for nurturing relations between believers and the Holy Spirit, a process facilitated by seven dynamics.
