Serving in Your Church Prayer Ministry (Zondervan Practical Ministry Guides)by Charles E. Lawless
Synopses & Reviews
These pragmatic, how-to-do-it, ministry manuals by experienced practitioners equip lay leaders for ministry in the local church. Each guide contains charts, worksheets, and discussion questions for individual or group use. Appropriate for any denomination or geographical setting, and especially helpful for small-to-mind-sized churches. Learn how to build and participate in a praying church with vivid stories and examples, activities, charts, and discussion questions.
Prayer is essential to the health and growth of the church, yet many churches fail to make prayer a priority. How can churches move beyond talk to action? How can prayer group members grow in their experience of prayer?
This short, practical manual shows how to participate in a praying church. It is based on the premise that to have a praying church, the pastor needs to be a praying leader who is supported by a team of praying laypersons. Then the fire of prayer will spread throughout the congregation.
Serving in Your Church Prayer Ministry is filled with stories and examples of churches that model effective prayer — everything from Charles Spurgeon's Monday night prayer meetings at London's Metropolitan Tabernacle in the 1800s to contemporary Tuesday night gatherings at the Brooklyn Tabernacle led by Jim Cymbala. Chapters include activity suggestions, charts, and discussion questions for both church staff and lay leaders for individual or group use.
