Preparation for Module 5

1. Get together with two Christian friends and share with them the insights you have gained thus far concerning the prophetic. Then take time to sit in a circle together as a triad, and invite them to take turns with you in speaking prophetically to one another. (It may help to "break the ice" by first taking time to pray over one another.) Record the outcome of this experience in your journal.

2. Reading Assignments (optional). In preparation for Module 5, you are encouraged to read the following sections of the Essentials for Spirit-Empowered Ministry (Early Release Edition) textbook:
