Prayer Partner Ministry

This is a prayer support ministry of our church. Each of us find ourselves in need of support through out the month in our spiritual journey. The word of God tells us in James 5.16 “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (NIV) The scriptures tells us in Act 4 that when the community of God comes together to care for each other it became a witness to the community and God added to the church daily those that should be saved.

We desire that every member of our church family have a prayer partner within 30 days of membership. Some of the areas to assist you in this process are these below;

  • Contact each other weekly and share prayer concerns and request .i.e. telephone, email, personally, after worship, etc.
  • Meet at least once monthly to come together for prayer for an hour.
  • One possible idea is to come together with another set or two of prayer partners for a monthly or bi monthly fellowship or small group
  • Each set of partners has he option of switching to new partners by January 1 of each year and rotate to new partners.
  • It’s important to understand that each partner should be a member of our church family, or committed attendee of our church and of the same sex.
  • Each person who becomes a new member should immediately select a prayer partner before the 30-day period has ended.
  • The person can select partners from the orientation class, bible classes or team ministries. You may want to seek the advice of your church counselor or Pastor for advice on possible persons.
  • There could be a possibility of a person being the third party in a prayer partnership if the other partners agree to this situation.
  • Pray for each other individually during the noon hour each day
  • Develop a 30-day calendar from your software on your computer with each day representing names of person’s i.e. family, church members, pastor and staff. Also from the 7 keys for Body-Life “List of ten” of unsaved and un-churched names you can labor before God in behalf of these people.

Remember prayer still changes things. Don’t wait until you find yourself in trouble, before you need the support of a prayer partner.
