Course DetailsThe course is designed around eight interactive sessions, designed to be done in teams of four. Putting people in teams around a table facilitates sharing and gets everyone to engage what is happening. Brief input segments are followed by chances for participants to actually pray and see results immediately. Participants will ask Jesus 15-20 intimate questions during the workshop, and journal or share with teammates after each one.

About the Author
What People Are Saying...“I have been a widow for many years… today I got my husband back.”
“I met the Jesus who just wants to talk to me… he was a chatty Jesus.”
"...She said she had not heard God speak to her in twenty years... and in this last session she has heard his voice several times."
A construction worker came to the microphone. “I’ve been telling God for the last year, ‘I don’t want you to talk to me. And I don’t want to talk to you.’” Then he choked up for a moment, and tears began running down his face. “It’s so good to be connected again.”
"My times with God are like a fire hose..."
"God met me in places I didn’t expect; and I received a perspective that blew the doors off. I come from a conservative background in which I was taught that feelings can get us off track and can’t be trusted. I was guarded about that, so when I realized that the training was going to be on going into feelings??? I was not sure what I thought or what to do. But what I came out with was an intimacy with a holy and relational God I have not experienced before." -- Missionary
"Our team is still meeting a year later..."
Jesus is much more tangible and real in my life!

This poster is a great training aid if you are presenting Questions for Jesus material--or a perfect reminder for where you have your devotions of how to pray your desires. There are five simple rules for asking Questions for Jesus:
- Ask in Faith...
Pray in accordance with what scripture has already revealed. We don't pray, "Jesus, do you love me?" but instead, "Jesus, what do you love about me?"
- for Desire Fulfilled...
We are praying for a specific desire, like love, security, peace, or recognition.
- in Relationship...
Instead of asking for a thing or outcome in this world to fill our desire, we ask Jesus to fill it with himself.
- by a Rhema...
The experiential, spoken word touches desires in ways the Logos (scripture) can't.
- from a Good God.
He's the one who longs to fill your desires. This isn't about what you can do for him, but what he can do for you.
Praying in accordance with these five principles can change your devotional life forever!
