Prayer Partners Network ?
Prayer Partners Network brings Christians together to uphold Gods people.
We believe in the power of prayer and need more individuals to join us in this important part of the ministry. The results prove the awesome power of prayer as salvation, answered prayers, deliverance and miracles are reported!
Prayer is integral to strengthening the ministry of God and one of our most powerful tools against the injustice of poverty. As we learn from Moses, who prayed on behalf of his people, prayer can save a nation.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
— 1 John 5:14-15 ESV
How to Develop a Prayer Partnership ?
How often have you heard the comment, “I’m too busy to pray”? The better response would be, “I’m too busy to not pray”! Prayer changes things . . . prayer gives us perspective during pressure . . . prayer takes the edge off ragged living . . . prayer is essential for victory in Christian living. Jesus said, “Also, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about something and pray for it, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. This is true because if two or three people come together in my name, I am there with them” (Matthew 18:19-20 NCV). Here is a simple plan for forming a prayer partnership . . . particularly if you’re life is on overload!
How often should we meet and for how long?
Plan to meet once a week for at least 15 to 20 minutes. You may wish to go longer, but it is best to allow that to develop spontaneously.
- Plan to meet once a week for 4 to 6 weeks, then evaluate if you wish to continue.
Praying, and joining together in prayer, is the most powerful thing we can do on this earth. Jesus, when talking with his disciples before going to Gethsemane and the cross, said, “Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (John 14:13 NKJV).
Prayer partners are people who join together to pray for specific people and their needs. Jesus said (Matt. 18:19 NIV), “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” Being prayer partners means that people share the things for which they need prayer, and other people “partner” with them to ask God to intervene for them.
When and where should we meet to pray?
- Be creative as to where and when. Try meeting outdoors in a park or by a lake, weather permitting. Take a walk together. If it is difficult to get together during the week, meet your prayer partner before or after church. A small group meeting during the week is an excellent setting for forming a prayer partnership.
