The First Printed Prayer Notebook

I began using this after typing it in 1980 at Truth Baptist Church Planting (19 total pages as ordered below).

Given without annotation to many individuals thereafter. It was edited many times after receiving our first computer in 1993.

12 (Submission to the Will of God, pp 12-13, -- the most developed section, it was here the intimacy of God's will as He revealed it to me shown closest to me, especially through the decisions I made to marry in 1988, to attend Temple Baptist in 1977, to move to CT in 1983,  and to attend Truth Baptist once moving there.) 

These pages illustrate how to make notations on the notebook pages thereby recording how you learn to pray, and how God intimately uses His word, circumstances, and people in your life to shape His revealed will for your life.
