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

As quiet worship played in the background, children from 0-17 years of age were called to the front of the room and fathers and church leaders came up to lay hands upon their heads and pray scriptural blessings over each one.
