Woodland Baptist Church
“Day-2-Pray” Intercessory Prayer Ministry
Praying Together for God’s Plan and Will for WBC
Biblical Basis: And they continued steadfastly…in prayers. (Acts 2:42)
Motivational Quote: We will never know the will of God for our church unless our church asks God through prayer. (A God-Centered Church by Henry Blackaby)
“My Day-2-Pray” Prayer Ministry—church members who feel called to pray for a 30-minute to an hour time slot one day a week for WBC. This prayer time can be observed at home.
“Our Day-2-Pray” Prayer Ministry—persons who feel called to come together to pray once a week at a certain time and a certain place (Zoom Prayer Meetings are a possibility as well!) The group—families, men, ladies, youth, couples, senior adults, etc.—determines the time and place and schedules/coordinates with pastor/church calendar.
Pastor will share each month (and more frequently if opportunities/needs arise) a “Day-2-Pray” Prayer Guide for those who sign-up prayer requests from the church. These requests can be generated by the pastor, church leaders, and church members. The individuals will use this prayer guide when they intercede as well as guide the groups when they gather to share Scripture and pray.
These requests will focus on how God is speaking and guiding His church to know how to join and obey the Lord in His plan and purpose for the church.
Each member/couple/family is encouraged to first pray concerning participation. If so, which day will be set aside to pray 30-60 minutes for God’s will and plan for WBC.

“Our Day-2-Pray” Reminders and Ideas: *The following is provided for groups who are being directed to meet for prayer. These guidelines may not specifically pertain to couples and families but may serve as a helpful reminder or guide.
The focus of the time is to pray not visit. A fellowship time may be included as an additional component but does not supersede the group’s primary purpose of to pray.
The prayer focus of the group is from the Prayer Guide that has been provided. Though the prayer time can pray for pressing needs/concerns of people, but encouragement is given to remember that the primary focus and the group prayer time is regarding interceding for God’s work and plan at WBC.
The large quantity of time should be spent in prayer not in discussion and sharing of prayer requests.
A time of Scripture sharing that connects to a church prayer request & ministry can be an effective way to shape the focus and intentions of the prayer group.
