Welcome is a website devoted to growing prayer in the local church.

The Church Prayer Leaders Network is for anyone who desires to see his or her church make prayer foundational to its entire ministry. Though designed specifically for the person in a local church (pastor or layperson) who has been given the task of leading prayer, the site and network is much broader than that. If you are in any type of ministry in your church, and have a heart for encouraging others to grow in prayer, this is for you. Pastors, small group leaders, intercessors, elders, youth and children's workers, worship leaders--anyone who leads and wants prayer to be central to what they do--will benefit from joining the CPLN.

Our desire is to encourage, challenge, and equip you to be a champion of prayer in your church.


Jonathan Graf
President, CPLN

Best Way to Change a Prayer Meeting for the Better

There are lots of issues involved when a church is bogged down in a prayer meeting rut. And there is no simple fix to make an existing prayer meeting that is dull, unexciting. But in almost every situation, there is one change you can make that will vastly improve the prayer.

What is it? Take the ownership of what you pray for away from the people and give it to a leader. In other words, let a leader select the prayer focus. This makes it easier to focus the meeting on Christ and not on the attendees. Most prayer meetings are people led, and focus on the agenda of those who attend. It is difficult to grow these prayer meetings to more than a few people. Why? Because when it focuses on the people's agendas, it functions like a small group. People who are not on the "in" who are blessed by praying for the needs of the other members, will have no interest in being a part of the meeting.
