Are you frustrated with how boring or distracted your times are with God? Do you long for more intimacy with God? Is there something in your heart telling you there must be more of God to experience than inspiring moments in a devotional book? If you're saying, "God, I want to go deeper!" but don't know how to get there, this book is for you.
Very few discipleship books go deep on the topic of friendship with God in prayer, but in this book, you will focus entirely on going deeper in prayer, experiencing God, and discovering what it feels like to live from a spiritual overflow.
Going Deeper is a 40-week discipleship workbook that will take you on a slow, step-by-step journey into a deeper experience of God through prayer and the Bible with the help of a mentor. Complete with weekly readings, practical prayer assignments, and detailed guidance for mentors (and optional video course), you will be inspired and equipped to encounter God through 1-2 hours of daily prayer.
With over 18 years of experience in full-time prayer ministry, pastoring, and discipleship, author Jeff Mootz offers a wealth of experience, tools, and Biblical understanding that will help you cultivate a deep friendship with God.
Whether you use this for 1-on-1 discipleship, a small group, a church discipleship program, or individual use, you will:
- Experience personal testimonies of intimacy with God consistently
- Grow in longing for God
