Prayer Group Notes Part 2

1 Corinthians 14:40  But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.

Each group will need someone to keep things orderly. The duties can be shared but someone will need to make sure people are included and cared for. Each group will have its own character, times of meeting, venue and frequency.  The content will depend on the gifts the group have. The groups will develop their own patterns.  Here are two that worked well:

 

We had a church prayer meeting that followed a pattern:

  • Coffee and catch-up
  • Worshipping God while playing a few worship songs on CD
  • Praising God and giving thanks
  • Short break
  • Discussing matters for prayer
  • Intercession, prophetic words

This usually covered two hours.

We had a monthly worship meeting that followed a pattern:

  • Coffee and catch up
  • Prayers and Scriptures and Thoughts
  • These were interspersed with worship songs

This meeting lasted about 1 hour

Groups will have content via:

  • Sunday Family Worship
  • The prayer email (from Wendy)
  • Ideas from church leaders
