Phil Miglioratti opened the winter leadership meeting of PrayerLink asking whether Southern Baptists are more interested in developing prayer guides (booklets and other resources about prayer) or prayer guides (individuals in congregations who help guide church members to be prayer warriors in the house of God).

Drawing his lesson from the purification of Jesus recorded in Luke 2, Miglioratti pointed to two individuals in Scripture who serve as prayer guides for twenty-first century believers—Anna and Simeon.

These two relatively obscure characters in the overall narrative of Scripture were “led by the Spirit to step up at just the right moment to announce God’s redemptive moment,” Miglioratti, prayer consultant for the Illinois Baptist State Association and national coordinator of Loving Our Communities to Christ, said.

Noting that we know nothing about them beyond this single instance, Miglioratti observed that Anna and Simeon both frequented the house of God and were devoted to the Lord in prayer.

“It is interesting to note that Luke 2:40 follows Luke 2:22–39,” he added.

Luke 2:40 states that Jesus grew up and became strong, filled with wisdom, and God’s grace was on Him.

“We cannot underestimate the power of prayer on people’s lives,” Miglioratti noted, urging the PrayerLink leadership team to focus its ministry objectives on creating “Luke 2:40 followers of Jesus”—those who grow strong in the Lord, who are filled with the Spirit, and who reflect the grace of God in how they live their lives.

Received a message from Phillip Ritchie

It seems that most churches are ok with prayer, but as a whole it does not seem that many are praying. Does God like the alter to be empty on Sunday morning? It seems like there is a lot of noise going on before the service starts. Would God be more pleased with us at the alter praying for a lost world and for His Kingdom to come or for all the noise we make before the service?

A dear friend of mine, Rev Richard Dyson, an AME Pastor now retired, in Western Maryland used to say "Little Prayer, Little Power. Much Prayer, Much Power". How true, yet many do not have heart knowledge of this concept. They only have head knowledge of this concept. The prayer issue seems to be a matter of the heart. Perhaps we should find ways to encourage prayer teams who will pray for the heart of our church leaders and encourage our leaders to pray more. Praying for them can be an "Act of Love". --- Love can open the heart to desire more prayer, and help them share that Love by encouraging even more people to pray.

I'm biased but this is a great resource to give your pray-ers a vision and passion for your community . . .

We've found that persons hesitant to participate in "solo" prayers will join in these "concerts" of prayer. Next thing you know, they experience the presence of God in new (to them) ways and gain confidence to pray the mind of the Lord more openly. Also, a single subject can be prayed this way and result in a common "sound" to the Lord. I believe this is what Acts 4 was about.

I LOVE using prayer concerts, even in large group settings. I always emphasize with my kids groups, too, that it doesn't matter if we are praying at the same time -- isn't it SO AWESOME that God can understand all those prayers at the same time... and can even understand them in different languages at the same time!!

Praying God will use it to bless those who gather.

Let us know how it goes ...

Good timing. I'll suggest we try this tonight at our community group meeting.

Prayer Concerts

In many non-Western churches, Christians often pray aloud—all at the same time. The idea is to lift individual prayers to God in concert.

Try it with your small group. Share requests first. Then have everyone pray at once in low voices. No one hears specific words, just murmurs. The sound this makes is beautifully soothing. Imagine what it sounds like to God!

This form of prayer helps you focus on God and prevents your mind from wandering while someone else is talking to the Lord.
