Praying Together Weekly Schedule

This semester we are seeking to increase our devotion to prayer by setting aside a time that we intentionally pray together. The goal for each Wednesday will be to begin by reading the specific passage(s) of Scripture together that will direct our prayer for the night. We will highlight the theme and specific points for prayer from the passage(s). Then we will go straight into praying together.

So here’s the schedule for the Fall.

If you would like to grow in this understanding of the biblical priority of praying together, consider Praying Together: The Priority and Privilege of Prayer: In Our Homes, Communities, and Churches by Megan Hill.

A Christian never prays alone.

Heard by the Father, helped by the Son and the Spirit, and joined with the prayers of others, a believer’s prayer always expresses a relationship. It is fitting, then, that God designed the church to be a community of believers who regularly pray together. And yet we often fail to prioritize these times in our daily lives.

Exploring the Bible’s teaching on corporate prayer and the rich blessings that result, Praying Together will help you delight in the privilege and give you the practical tools to make praying with others a regular practice in your home, your church, and your community.
