Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
In your congregation, team, ministry, group:
I have a question to the people who are listing themselves under the "who" question. Are you the only person leading, planning, holding training, etc.? Do you have a team or a group that you meet with to help you plan? I am the prayer coordinator at my church and work directly with the pastor; however, sometimes, I think it would be beneficial to have a group to go to that I could bounce ideas off of and/or pray with for planning purposes. Just wondering how others are managing that. Obviously the pastor's scope is much wider than prayer ministry so I sometimes feel like I am trying to plan and prepare without much help. Any ideas?
What: Weekly intercessory prayer meetings to pray for congregation's new requests; Bi Weekly "Hedge the Pastor" meetings to pray for and with our pastors.; pray-ers at communion altar monthly during communion;working on other, future events
When: planning takes place "when needed" Only a small group actively involved. Tough to get others to participate
Why: We have pastor support, but not strong song. support
How: Encouragement at monthly Church Council meetings; encouragement to Stephen's Ministry and other ministries in the church
We are learning...
