Summary

"Lord, teach us to pray," every small group, from Jesus' to yours, has asked. Prayer is intimidating--what do you say to the God of the universe? How do you listen to Someone you can't see? Add other voices to the mix and prayer becomes downright scary--one more opportunity to feel like an idiot in front of your small group, or one more opportunity to highlight the differences between you. And yet prayer is a gift from God to all of us, and group prayer binds us to one another in ways that no other activity can.InTogether in PrayerAndrew R. Wheeler lays the groundwork for establishing a responsible, meaningful prayer ministry in your small group. Here you'll find guidelines for praying in groups, common pitfalls of communal prayer and suggestions for spurring your group onward. Comprehensive in its scope, thoughtful in its approach and practical in its insights,Together in Prayerserves as an authoritative guide for your group to embrace and enhance prayer together.
