MOBILIZE CONGREGATIONS, SPUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH, & SUPPORT CHURCHES
Our mission is to help large numbers of believers to become more effective in prayer and certain aspects of spiritual warfare.
WHAT WE DO
Are you a prayer leader, or someone who truly believes in the power of prayer? The Strategic Prayer InitiativeTM (SPITM) has consistently prayed, and labored hard, for over 15 years, to help you develop a better prayer life for yourself and/or others. If you are a prayer leader at your church, we have finally found a way to make you more effective at bringing forth real change. Which means your passion to help people in your church to grow in prayer will finally stop hitting so many walls.
So, whether you want to advance just yourself, your friends, your Sunday School class, your small group, or your church, we can help you.
WHO SHOULD BE INVOLVED
Any church that feels Christians are truly in a spiritual battle and would welcome a way to help their people to be more effective in the battle.
Any church that feels its members are already stretched too thin with all of the time demands that are on their lives but would truly welcome a time efficient way to help them be more effective for the Lord’s work, in the nation and the world.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU & YOUR CHURCH
Strongly increase the personal prayer shield of the Pastor(s) or Priest(s)
Take a large portion of your congregation to a much higher satisfaction level concerning their prayer lives
Lay a foundation of spiritual disciplines that will facilitate growth in your church body
Give the leadership a way to know how well their people are doing in key elements of fighting the spiritual battle.
PRAYER LIFE OF THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN IS A SLEEPING GIANT IN THE CHURCH
SPI can be done church-wide, with a sub-group of your church, within existing small groups, or as a grassroots launch.
As a starter, we always recommend that you begin with one of SPI’s two diagnostic surveys. If you are launching church-wide the (completely anonymous) survey needs to be filled out during the Sunday morning service. Since SPI’s mission is targeted at the average American Christian, having information on the “whole” congregation is extremely important, so it must be gathered Sunday morning. Doing one of these surveys on a Sunday morning is viewed as an act of worship; the reason it is regarded as worship is that with a relatively short amount of time we can better equip a group of believers to have a deeper relationship with Christ and to be more effective for His kingdom.
A church-wide launch can be done as a hard launch or a soft launch. If you or some of the people at your church want to launch SPI with the church, it is imperative that the Senior Pastor is totally behind it. If this is not the case, it will be substantially more difficult to be effective on a group or congregational level.
Nevertheless, if your church is not interested in formally launching SPI you still have the option of moving forward with a Grassroots Launch, which sometimes is preferable to a group or church wide launch.
START PRAYING TODAY
Pray for your community, nation, and the world today! This free download offers strategic prayers you can speak aloud or pray inaudibly, starting today!
All of the SPI research we have done has made it abundantly clear, the greatest of the seven (7) main obstacles to prayer growth is people not making the time (according to them).
Therefore, one of the tools we have built and tested is a super-time-affective tool known as A Strategic Prayer Data Sheet (often referred to as the Pink Sheet). In this monthly tool others have done a large amount of work for you, so that you can greatly increase your prayer reach for communities, the country, and the world, while only asking for about one minute of your time, on a typical day! This one-minute-a-day can actually be created by just muting one television commercial break. Get started today driving greater change via your prayers, yet without placing too heavy of burden on yourself! If you think God wants you to have a good prayer life, but you currently don’t, this is a wonderful next step!!
