Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
I am trying to start prayer teams praying during the sermons.
Guides for the groups?
Suggestions for prayer?
Suggestions for prayer:
Ask God to prepare hearts to be "good soil" for the Word to fall on and take root, also for God to oppose the enemy from coming and taking the Word away. Also pray for God to open people's minds to understand the scriptures. See Luke 24:45. If Jesus did it then He certainly can, and will do it again. Bill
Hello - I'm new to this Pray Network site and noticed your quest (of a year ago) regarding starting prayer teams and praying during services or sermons. I trust that by now the Lord has enabled you to accomplish that goal. I do want to add a manual that I found for our team praying during services that has helped us develop a standard of praying God's word during the services - praying for the Pastor(s) and Worship Leader and the congregation as well. You may or may not find it helpful or even desire it for your team - "Ignite the Fire: Praying for Life-Changing Worship and Preaching" by Dr. Kevin Meador. His site is www.closetministries.org He has several prayer helps on the site which we have found to be helpful, especially for those who are beginning or want to begin praying and interceding. He has several great teaching tools for praying the scripture for various prayer arenas.
May the Lord Bless you.

From my experience: I have a separate prayer room. I arrive before worship choirs. I sanctify myself and the room. I enter the God's sanctuary through the blood of Jesus -Hb.4:16
I present names of choirs , pastors and I invite congregations and wash seats and atmosphere with the blood of jesus.
I ask God to anoint every word and action being uttered and done every minute during sermons
I maintain connection with God's throne of grace for the Holy Spirit to manifest Himself
Sometimes I kneel down and I can also walk around in prayer.
N.B. Sometimes people come to me for prayer and they get answer to their requests.
