Mini-Course: Assess Your Prayer Culture ~ 11 Practices of Praying Churches

Praying Churches…


Have established a Prayer Culture…

Every church prays, but not every church is truly a praying church. Praying churches have a culture saturated with prayer; prayer has permeated every family, integrated into every ministry, and has been penetrating into the community.

…That is driven by a Prayer Champion…

Unless and until the pastor of the church, in congregations small or large, has begun to learn personally how to lead and facilitate prayer corporately, that congregation will remain a church that says prayers. It cannot have a complete culture change with out the leadership or the pastor.

…Who has taught & trained biblical Prayer Commands…

The Prayer Champion models a praying life but must also provide the biblical content as a foundation for prayer. Church members young and old, new to the faith and veterans of spiritual wars, must understand the Bible’s teachings on the who, what, where, when, why and how of praying.

…And has made three difficult Prayer Changes,…

Change #1 – the leader must change.

…Who helps recruit a Praying Core…

To help the pastor identify, train and lead those who respond to the challenge to live a life of prayer. These are usually intercessors who recognize a call upon their life to pray without ceasing. They must be given affirmation and opportunities to pray and to share spiritual insights from their time in their prayer closets.

…toward transforming classes/groups/committees into Prayer Clusters

A key objective is to train each ministry leader, class teacher, and group director in how to integrate prayer into their ongoing ministry or activity. Prayer that invites participation from those in the group or on the committee. Prayer that permeates the Bible study, agenda discussion or planning session.

Pray Focused on the Community – asking God for his heart for the people, place and things (issues) that influence and impact the community and culture
