Prayer is a vital component of small-group life. It sets up and maintains the health and vibrancy of your group. Sound prayer practices can affect your group in the following ways:
- Positively influence how your small-group participants interact and minister to one another
- Empower and mobilize your small group to reach out and incorporate spiritually unconvinced people into the body of Christ
- Open the hearts of the hurting to God's healing power
- Open the ears of those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ to the gospel message
For these reasons, you should incorporate prayer throughout your small-group meeting. While each meeting should include prayer, you can keep things fresh by changing how you pray.
