Pray.Network

A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities


I serve as the coordinator for the ACT3 prayer team. ACT3 is a ministry dedicated to "missional ecumenism" - challenging the splintered parts of the Body of Christ  to pray and serve and bear witness together. Another expression of "The whole Church showing and telling the whole Gospel to the whole nation and world."

Every week I send a reminder to those who have committed themselves to praying for friend and colleague John Armstrong and the ACT3 ministry he leads. The most recent one elicited a strange response:

It’s immensely helpful. Wish I had heard it years ago!

And your third-grade teacher would be proud. (:>)

This reply came from a member of the prayer team who works as an editor, so she was much in tune with my suggestion of how to approach our prayer assignment. I suggested that we each read John's update by looking for nouns: persons, places and thing/ideas.
  • Persons - get us praying for real people with real needs
  • Places - usually connect our prayers to events past (praise) or future (petition)
  • Things -or ideas lifts our praying beyond the usual "help" and "heal" list of requests to the ideas, issues and institutions shaping our culture and impacting our communities
May I ask you to take 60 seconds and ask the Lord how to pray for Pray! Network?
  • Does a person come to mind? A Pray! Community friend? Featured Prayer Leader?
  • Go to the member's map on the front page and ask how to pray for a place or check the events calendar and bless an upcoming event. 
  • What ideas or issues have you encountered here that need prayer?
If you do, I'd really like to know how the Spirit led you in praying...
