I Started A Prayer Group, Now What?

There isn’t a science to praying together, but there can be bumps along the way. We want to help you navigate some of the unknown terrain.

I’m at my prayer group, now what?

Imperfectly Brave has adopted four pillars from 2 Chronicles 7:14 to assist further with your prayer group. Please take a moment to walk through each pillar before praying together.

Come, called, return, revive is simply a pattern to follow, but it is by no means a net to bind you. Praying together should never replace personal prayer time with the Lord. It will only heighten and increase your love for coming into the presence of your King. Nor does prayer group become your church, but a complement to the body.

Come


When 2 Chronicles 7:14 was spoken, people were gathered around Solomon. They came. Solomon dedicated the temple and asked God to dwell in its courts. The same goes for us. We come. And to be blunt, this might be one of the harder elements. Showing up despite circumstances, fears, insecurities, and shortcomings. Come anyway. There will be a rich reward in the pattern of coming.

How Does This Work?

Keep your group small (3-5 people). Humans are delicate and we can only handle so much. If it gets bigger, women begin to feel more uncomfortable and unsafe.

Called


We are called by the name of Christ. We must remember who we are when we pray. Daughters covered by the blood of the Lamb. It is only by that blood that we can boldly approach the throne room of God.

How Does This Work?

The Bible is our source of truth in remembering who we are in Christ. Before praying together, open your time in the scriptures by reading a passage and recalibrating your mind to Christ.

Return


Augustine said, “If you plan to build a tall house of virtues, you must first lay deep foundations of humility.” We come. We humble ourselves. We return to God. Just as the Israelites were asked to return to God, we must keep coming back to God.

How Does This Work?

Start with one person and allow her to share how she’d like to return to God that week and how she’d like to return other situations. Give her time to share. Listen to understand, not to respond. Then, move into praying over her. Feel free to share, but keep prayer the main focus–not therapy. Continue with each woman and allow the Spirit to lead.

Revive


The truth of the matter is that we are already healed. We actually have been made the Bride of Christ our King. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be sin that entangles. As we pray together, God will revive despite sin. It is our job to see it, respond in gratefulness and move forward.

How Does This Work?

God will speak to your group by answering in His timing and His perfect way. Be prepared for the ways He will act and, when He does, respond in obedience. He will begin to call you out into new waters. This is where your prayer group will feel like your cheerleaders and encourages, as you take step after step into His reviving waters.
