Questions to Consider When Beginning or Evaluating Your Church Prayer Ministry


By Lynn Heatley


In  meeting with Congregational Prayer Coordinators, I have developed these key questions that are good for discussion and are proving valuable in discerning vision and goals for prayer coordinators and their leaders in their local congregation.

Key Questions to Discover for Effective Congregational Prayer Ministry:

1. What are the primary gifts of your church?

2. What is the vision for prayer ministry from your senior pastor? Other leadership?

3. Do you have any guidelines/perimeters to work from? If so, what are they?

4. What are the expectations of you as "Prayer Coordinator" from the pastor and other l
leaders (do you have a job description)?

5. Do you have any budget for prayer? If so, how is it to be used?

6. What do the people in your congregation need that will bridge them from:

Prayerlessness-to-Beginning to pray
Praying Beginners-to-Prayer Ministry Involvement
Prayer Ministry Involvement-to-Prayer Leadership and Mentoring Others in Prayer
Mentoring others in Prayer–to–prayer becoming a vital part of every ministry in the church (no longer just one ministry that prays, but every ministry takes their role of priestly intercession seriously)

7. What areas, personally, do you need to be further equipped in and supported to increase your effectiveness as a Prayer Coordinator and/or as a person growing in prayer?

May the Lord be glorified and direct your steps as you come into united purpose and action in your ministry of prayer!

Invitation to Invasion

Sunday, May 18, 2014


I believe that one of the most powerful, transformative prayers that can be prayed in any circumstance, is the heart of the Model Prayer: " Your Kingdom Come, Your will be done." As I was praying this one day over a particular situation, I sensed from The Lord that this was an invitation for an invasion. An invasion of the Kingdom of God into the kingdom of my own little world....More»»
