Rules and Notes

​"You can't learn to fly by reading books - you must fly with a little help from an instructor. You can't learn to pray by reading books on prayer, you must pray with a little help from the Word, the Spirit and humans." - Paul Pent

​Please help the leader to help everyone be governed by these rules. The rules, when followed, will greatly help the prayer session to avoid degenerating into a Bible study, a discussion, a counseling session, focusing on problems or issues instead of God's Kingdom and righteousness. (If you want a Bible study, etc., schedule one.)

Rules

The two Bible rules while praying:

  1. Pray with thanksgiving and
  2. ask in faith without wavering.

Common Sense Rules

​Please consider following these rules the first year.

  1. All content in the color red is for the leader to initiate a new prayer subject.
  2. The chat icon represents sections that need to be read by everyone
  3. Instead of telling everyone what God did for you, describe it to God and we will give thanks with you.
  4. Instead of telling everyone your prayer request, just tell it to God and we will pray with you.
  5. While reading Scripture, if someone asks a question, the leader should say, "That's a good questions.  We will discuss it after this prayer session."
  6. This is not a Bible study.  The reading of the Bible during the prayer session is to hear from God and increase our faith to pray.  If you have a comment about Scripture, tell it to God and we will worship with you.
  7. Say one prayer at a time.  Pause, then go on if no one else says a prayer.
  8. Be charitable!  It will all workout in the end.

​Note how the sessions are planned to make sure the priority in prayer subjects in least interesting personally and most interesting to God and His Kingdom.

​"Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you." (Matthew 6:33)
