Alpha Tips: Re-thinking Prayer and Intercession
We are wanting to increase our time spent in prayer and intercession, not only on our Alpha night, but in corporate ways for the entire church. Do you have any suggestions?
This is a great question, and we have a few suggestions
First, if you don't have it already, pick up a copy of The Alpha Prayer Guide, by Pete Greig. In this great resource Pete Greig describes practical models of corporate prayer, alongside inspiring testimonies from Alpha Offices and 24-7 Prayer networks around the world, and provides helpful guidelines for becoming an effective praying community
Next, there is a section on Prayer in the Alpha Library. Here you will find practical tips and ideas for how to recruit and train a prayer team to support your course, how to engage your whole church in praying for your efforts and how to incorporate prayer into the course itself.
Finally, here is a "must" view for you and your Alpha team. Watch this Alpha Tip Podcast on The Most Powerful Prayer For An Alpha Small Group.
Hope this helps and thank you for asking.
