This Introduction is to write out what I have learned about prayer to
accompany a copy of my "Daily Prayer Notebook." This should
help you learn how to use it and understand the great power available to
those who study it.
You can read later How To Start Your Own Notebook,
but we urge you to begin this study with the Lord's Prayer, and
understanding it, by going now to the Classes
Page to read further material explaining how each part of the
outline relates to another.
