This book was born out of prayer. The Lord called Dr. Fomum and a few others aside to pray and they wrestled in prayer between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m each night. This went on for many weeks. They found themselves blessed, challenged, and purified and came to see the Lord in a new way and to understand the purpose of their being in a totally new light.
This book was also born out of an experience of obedience. Some of them were led to obey an obvious command of the Lord, which is clearly written in the Bible and which they had not yet obeyed. That obedience was costly but has led to the birth of the ministries now associated with Christian Literature Centre, Yaounde. It also led to the birth of some assemblies which have, by God's grace, grown into praying communities.
The truths charted in this book are coloured by what that local assembly has learnt as it tried, step by step, to follow the praying Lord in the School of Prayer. Dr. Fomum and the team have a commitment to prayer, fasting, and evangelism which keeps growing.
They have come to discover that all things are possible to the praying saint and to the praying body of believers. Their hearts' desire is that all those who know the Lord Jesus will truly become people of prayer. This book is sent out with prayer that it will help some individuals and local assemblies to make progress with the Lord in the "School of Prayer".
