Prayer On Mission

August 4, 2009


Reading the book Missional Renaissance this week by Reggie McNeal and wanted to share some specific ideas he has for engaging God’s redemptive mission in the world through prayer:

  • “Prayer-scaping” simply asking God to show you what he sees and where he is working so that we can join him
  • Prayer walking your neighborhood and letting people know you’re praying for them
  • Prayer booths and boxes and following up with emails and action
  • Adopting community leaders and servants for prayer–what are their challenges wishes and dreams for the community?
  • Praying for the community in worship services
  • Praying for hospitality staff in restaurants or other service industries
  • Community prayer meeting across denomination!  Whaaaa!?
  • Praying for the lost

Great book with some key ideas for many church people to mull over.  I’ll probably be posting more practical ideas of his in the future.  In the mean time, we’re going to try to start doing it!  Join us wherever you are in the world!
