Towards an interceding congregation: a practical theological engagement
Joubert, Jacobus Johannes
MetadataShow full item record
Christians pray too little. The lack of general prayer and intercessory prayer specifically is the result of insufficient teaching and training by the church. The Christian household consequently lacks the information and method to be involved in prayer. Change initiates with the spiritual leader(s). Spiritually and relationally healthy, the leader(s) will be able prayerfully to lead and guide all the ministry aspects of the congregation to be prayer-orientated. Further equipment by means of teaching involves ensuring a spiritual and relational healthy congregation. In addition, prayer models will be referred to as inspiration and prayer methods will be provided to enable members to participate in prayer. The committed application of teaching and the practice of regular prayer will result in prayerful individuals and consequently in prayerful congregations.
