Prayer is absolutely indespensible for your church. The early church was powerful because it prayed - and today, God moves in praying churches in ways that planning and programs alone can't produce. This book is designed to help your church become more alive, more powerful, and more in love with Jesus Christ as you and your group learn and practice the secrets of effective prayer. This book discusses the importance of prayer, prioritizing prayer in your church, praying evangelistically, and much more.
