Why Pray With God?

Heartfelt Prayer on the Streets
One of the key characteristics of effective prayer is that it is heartfelt and fervent. Many of you would have seen this clip that circulated during the peak of the Corona lock down and, like us, were deeply moved by these reverent and passionate prayers.

Virtual Prayer Groups
Corporate prayer is very prominent in the Bible and should also be in our lives. It is a core part of our Christian experience. The descriptions of corporate prayer in the Bible paint a picture of prayer that is vital, explosive, powerful, extravagant, bold, successful, satisfying, life- changing, nation changing. These meetings were not dull or boring! Although there is absolutely no substitute for individual prayer, the results of group prayer can be more powerful and effective than praying alone.
Praying together effectively requires different techniques and skills to when we pray alone. It’s not a free for all! And a soldier is not an army! With practice, a unified and skilled group will result in extremely satisfying and effective prayers.
Once you have completed the course you can join an online prayer house or host your own.

What People Say
I have first hand experience of using this prayer teaching both in corporate prayer meetings and praying on my own. This model can be used to bring about change both on a national and a personal level. I have experienced answers to prayer including a new job and physical healing from IBS, a skin condition and a knee condition.
Attending this workshop has revolutionised our prayer life. As we started Praying with God for our extended family we have begun to see great change taking place - together with divine protection and purpose. I
Iove the story of Elijah in 1 Kings 18:42, praying for rain on top of Mt Carmel, with his face between his knees. It is such a beautiful picture of the teamwork between God and someone willing to pray with Him. God promised rain, but Elijah had to do his part, earnestly praying for rain in order to break the drought.
When John first explained how, why and when we should pray WITH God rather than TO Him , it came as a huge revelation. Yes, I've declared, decreed, proclaimed creatively interceded and agreed with the Word because I love to pray. But I had never been aware that I was missing such a great key in my relationship with the LORD, until I put this teaching into practice. This teaching is powerful, scriptural and practically based for equipping those who want to enhance their prayer life.
