Strategic Prayer Training

Administrative Bishops, State Prayer Leaders and Teams, Key Pastors and Leaders who might help with some aspect of the prayer process are invited to attend AGREE 19, a revival and prayer convocation, in Cleveland, TN, Tuesday, January 8-Thursday, January 10, 2019.

We will meet jointly with the Unreached People Group Coalition.

I want to identify a prayer leader-trainer for every nation, whose goal would be to mobilize prayer in every congregation in that nation. In addition, I want to identify regional mobilizer-trainers for each of the 21 global regions. This is where you could play a critical role. I need peers to these 21 global regional trainers, mentors and peer-trainer mobilizers to these regions and nations, who would, perhaps like you, be willing to travel abroad, raising up praying-missional congregations with a focus on the lost around them, including UPGs.

Each evening we will gather at the Church of God General headquarters, in the Communication Center, for the live-broadcast of the global prayer service with Dr. Hill, members of the Executive Committee and church leaders. In 2018, the theme was prayer. In 2019, the theme will be ‘care’ without dismissing prayer. In 2020, the theme will be ‘share’ with prayer and care in the background. We are on a mission, to encourage our churches to be ‘houses of prayer,’ that demonstrate compassion to the lost and look for opportunities to share Christ.

We have relaunched The Praying Church Movement. This is our attempt to get each congregation to be intentional in their prayer effort, which begins with naming a prayer learning team. Currently, we have 600 churches across the nation that are being intentional about congregational prayer leadership.

If we assume prayer, like assuming the fire on the altar, it will die. If we don’t direct it, shape its theology, it will degenerate to self-interested prayer – prayer requests. We must recover prayer that is at its heart worship, and at its edge mission.

We want to come out of our January meeting firing on all cylinders and we especially want to raise the level of intercessory prayer engagement. We want to vision our future. We cannot afford, in these last days, to allow our prayer effort to become stale and rote. Let’s take Jesus seriously. He wants the church to be a ‘house of prayer for the nations.’ I think he is calling us to turn some tables over in the temple!
