This book is a how-to guide for those wanting to start or improve an intercessory prayer ministry at their church. The book is based on Elaine’s highly successful work at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in creating an outstanding prayer ministry. The book takes you through a step by step process that starts with praying, goes to planning and praying for workers, preparing for the church calendar and budget, promoting the prayer ministry and proceeding with the plans. It ends with praising God for what He does through the efforts of prayer team. The book is full of helpful forms to illustrate each step, such as samples of pew prayer request forms, telephone request forms and guidelines for prayer chain members. She also gives us a practical look at how to set up and run a prayer room, as well as how to record praises and answers to prayer.

Review: If you want to start an intercessory prayer ministry at your church, don’t try and re-invent the wheel. Instead, get a copy of this easy to read and easy to implement guidebook that will get you started in an organized, effective and prayerful way.
