A citywide or county-wide prayer movement will never be any stronger than the prayer in the local church!

WHEN WE PRAY meets on a quarterly basis from 9:00a.m. - 1:00p.m. This prayer gathering is a blend of people from various churches all across Lake County. We pray for the needs of the county and all churches. We encourage everyone to come and share in this special time of prayer and worship for our communities here in Lake County. Come when you can, stay as long as you can.

When We Pray

Christian Assembly of God
September 20, 2008

Many gathered this past Saturday to pray for community transformation. It is always a great pleasure for saints to gather together in unity and agree in prayer concerning our churches and community. We had the pleasure to pray over Zion’s chief of police, Larry Booth. Also present were two Waukegan police officers who cherished our prayers. We always appreciate Judge George Bridges in our midst.

We’re now entering into our ShareFest month. We wanted to kick-off ShareFest with a great start in prayer. Jackie Larson, ShareFest director, received a good send-off. She is a woman of prayer and we’re sure that those involved in ShareFest will allow the love of Christ to shine through them as they serve their community. Prayer works!

Lake County Houses of Prayer

Our Vision: that every church in Lake County would become a vibrant “House of Prayer.”

Our Mission: to equip church leadership with the tools and teaching materials to place prayer at the central core of their church by assessing prayer standards at their church and through training staff and members how to pray.

Our Goal: to enable people attending church to develop a more intimate and personal relationship with Jesus through prayer with the ultimate goal being to see souls saved for eternity.

The result of the above should be to make more disciples of Jesus Christ, bearing good fruit and becoming better witnesses about the work He is doing in our lives and for others.

Key Questions/Issues:

  • How to make the importance of Prayer understood by churches where prayer is not at the center of the church; how to make prayer the core of each individual’s life.
  • How to introduce the POWER behind prayer to churches and individuals, i.e., through education and teaching on the Holy Spirit and Praying in the SPIRIT at all times.
  • Distinguish between types of prayers, prayer practices and corporate and individual prayer.

Pastors --- When was the last time you assessed the effectiveness of the prayer programs at your church? Is your church growing in corporate and individual prayer? Is your church on fire for prayer? Do you have a GREAT prayer practice to share with others? Or could it be that you feel frustrated or “stuck” when it comes to your church prayer programs? Perhaps you are struggling with lackluster prayer meetings and poor attendance? Or maybe you are seeking prayer training for your staff and ideas to help catapult your church to the top of the charts as a vibrant “house of prayer?”

Have Your Church Take a Confidential Prayer Survey ---- We are seeking churches that are willing to participate in a study on PRAYER PRACTICES. We’d love it if you’d help us out by having each member of your staff and leadership teams anonymously complete a questionnaire on prayer practices. We can all learn from each other. The Senior Pastor of each participating church will receive a confidential summary of the survey results for their church. Collective information will be summarized and used anonymously to help all Catalyst churches move up the ladder to becoming stronger, more powerful and more vibrant “houses of prayer.” Sign up to participate today! Contact Debbie Stackhouse at: dstackhouse@catalystweb.org or Kim Gates at: 847-566-6551.

Under the guidance of Catalyst Associate Director Debbie Stackhouse, the Catalyst prayer team will be sending a short e-newsletter to anyone who would like to receive it. If you are a prayer leader in a congregation, part of an intercessory prayer group, a pastor who wants to nurture prayer among your people, or someone who’d like to grow in their prayer relationship with the Lord, this e-mail newsletter is for you. This e-mail newsletter, dubbed the Catalyst Prayer Connection, will disseminate pertinent congregational prayer needs, testimonies of answered prayer, resources, ideas and news of prayer-related events.
