Prayer warriors are people who are known for regularly interceding on behalf of others before God. To intercede means to come between, so prayer warriors are, in effect, coming between God and the trouble in another person’s life.

Prayer warriors are like defense attorneys, appealing to the Higher Court on behalf of their defendants. We’re all guilty before God, but God is merciful. Prayer warriors recognize that quality of God’s personality and call on Him for intervention.

Are your prayers filled with requests for others? You have been given this ministry of intercession and through prayer you can be used by God to touch lives of people – those you have never met and those who are very close to you. Are you a prayer warrior?

Why a Prayer Warrior's Ministry?

And they devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of break, and to the prayers” (Acts 2:42).

The goal of a prayer ministry is not to do all the praying for the church, but to equip, enable, and encourage church members to pray continually and effectively while making prayer a part of everything they do. The first and possibly the most important component in developing a church-wide prayer ministry is leadership that is committed to prayer.

If that leadership component is missing, no other piece of this strategy or any strategy can replace it. As you ask God to continue cultivating in you a deepening prayer life, consider what components should be part of your strategy to translate that desire for prayer into a reality within your church.
