We provide a convenient way to include the pamphlets on your site via the IFRAME tag.

Suggestions for Use
Each tract is described for some particular purpose. This link displays some suggestions as to how the particular pamphlet can be used.
Carrying out the ministry of reconciliation in the church, particularly as it is done in prayer ministry. Includes identificational repentance and how to "stand in" for someone in forgiveness. Also addresses issues such as the difference between forgiveness and refusing to deal with a problem. This pamphlet would be particularly useful in training prayer teams.
Basic intercessory prayer. There are many misunderstandings about intercessory prayer and particularly about being an "intercessor." This pamphlet shows that every Christian is called to intercessory prayer, and not just a small group. Some, however, are called to pray more than others, and it provides guidelines for them.
Basics of individual and group prayer. If you are a pastor or Christian Education Director, this is an ideal handout to begin a ‘disciple’ class on "teach us to pray." Contains a basic list of Biblical prayers and promises and answers some basic questions believers, especially new believers have about prayer.
Some example prayers taken from scriptures to help you learn how to pray the scriptures. Includes adaptations of Ephesians 1:15-23, Ephesians 3:14-21, Ephesians 6:10-20, Psalm 91 and Psalm 121, along with space for a prayer list.
How to turn repentance into a positive and arrive at the freedom and joy that can follow. We often suffer because we believe we are unable to admit when we're wrong. When we don't change the direction of our attitude, we WILL keep repeating the same mistakes. This pamphlet presents some Biblical principles for success in making repentance a lifestyle.
A pamphlet for Christian Bible students who are having a hard time getting the full benefit from their Bible study. If you feel sleepy when you start to study, this tract is for you. If you are bored when you read, this tract is for you. These are some issues that you need to take on if you want to study the Bible spiritually, and gain the full benefit of communion with God, and hearing what God has to say to you through the study of his Word.
Principles of choice for living the Christian life. In spiritual warfare THE basic principle is choice. It is not a matter of the actions we take against anyone, but rather of the action of our OWN will in resisting evil.
