Practicing Prayer

Just as Jesus modeled prayer to his disciples, we must lead the way in implementing prayer in our church ministries. I suggest you implement some of the following ideas:

1. Pray

Prayer must support all we do. It should be a natural thing for us to pray about everything –decisions, problems, giving thanks, prayer for each other, asking His blessing and guidance before each ministry activity, etc.

Implementation: Renew your commitment to a life of prayer. Set a new goal for length of prayer time. Take time to pray with all people who enter your office. Be sensitive to statements of need from your staff, family, friends and church members. Don’t just say “I’ll pray for you.” Take the time right then to offer a word of prayer.

2. Encourage significant staff and leadership prayer.

When church leaders and staff pray, it lets the congregation know they are cared for and provides a model for them to follow.

Implementation: Require staff to set aside time each day for personal prayer. Once each week, bring the staff together to pray for each other, your church and the needs of the congregation.
