Prayer changes things. As we pray, we grow to know the Lord more, our hearts are opened for him to work in our lives, and our eyes are opened to see more of his work in our lives of those around us.
There is power in praying together. The 24/7 prayer movement shows how God is more than ready to listen to our prayers and answer in amazing ways. (Read Red Moon Rising and Dirty Glory by Pete Greig to be inspired!)
Scripture and Church history suggest that missional growth is the result of prayer more than any other single activity. But in a world where church members seem ever busier how do we build a church that prays? What does a 21st century praying church look like?
On Wednesday 15th May we’re hosting a training day called Leading a praying church. John Dunnett from CPAS is leading the day. He says, “In my 18 years of parish ministry I saw again and again how intercession could be both released within the local church – and change the missional fruitfulness of its ministry. So I’m very excited to be able to help those in church leadership think through what we can learn from Scripture, church history and the example of others about how to lead a praying church.”
The day is open to people from any church, and is aimed at anyone who has a heart for seeing their church pray.
“We’ve run this day in a number of venues around the country – and feedback has been exceptionally good,” John says. “Do join us if you possibly can.”
