One of the ministries to churches we perform is
Friends, what better time than today for our people to really learn how to pray. And beyond that- for them to relearn the forgotten art, that so many great moves of God leveraged, united prayer.When were you last in a prayer meeting?
In our studies of thriving churches we have noted two marks they have in common:
They are very evangelistic.
The most evangelistic churches have a great commitment to united prayer.
Jesus quoted the prophet Isaiah,
"My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations."
We observe three kinds of praying churches: which one is your church?
C1 = Crisis praying churches
No structure/prayer is casual/optional
C2= Prayer Ministry Churches
One ministry among many
Regular work of a faithful few
Staff involvement is casual/irregular
C3= House of Prayer Churches
Prayer at the heart of every ministry
Everyone is praying
All leaders are engaged/leading bold, joyful prayer
We coach local churches lead them in growing in House of Prayer churches.
Contact us for more information, or to engage with us in becoming a House of Prayer.
Pray should be at the core of every ministry your church has. Everything should being with prayer, be carried along by prayer, and culminate in the prayer of thanksgiving.
We coach churches in igniting a prayer movement.

Resources for Praying Churches
Welcome to Prayer Coaching
We serve local churches in equipping them to come together for bold, joyful, united prayer. The joy of the Lord is our strength, and His promises are our bedrock. The "Father seeks such to worship Him." We come at His request!
As we grow together as a praying body, we go through a number of resources.
Below are a number of prayer resources we make available to our partner churches (and you, obviously). You may download these and distribute them as you will.

Sample prayer meeting agenda
Pray & Go Here, a blending of our Go Here ministry and praying. Partly because of the restrictions on person to person outreach, we have developed a community outreach centered around prayer for a household, then leaving a door hanger stating you prayed for God's blessing on this home. Also, the door hanger has contact information for specific prayer or to contact us.
