MISSION THROUGH PRAYER
This is an important webinar, which we repeat periodically. Involvement in leading well over 100 evangelistic outreaches at the request of rural churches all over Britain and across the denominations, I learned the importance of prayer if we want our endeavours to be blessed. Some stories of missions undergirded with prayer are inspiring. I look forward to sharing these with you.
In one situation I helped to organise an outrecah programme for three villages, involving seven churches, where we used prayer as a mission tool. As far as I know this is a unique event, but one which i believe others could replicate. In this webinar I explain the process step by step.
The pdf documents in this section show samples of items we used in a Mission through Prayer. They are all mentioned in the video.
Letter were distributed to all those attending the seven churches involved in this mission.

As explained in the video, each day there was a focus on praying for various aspects of community life, such as schools, medical and care services, farmers and neighbours etc. This is an example of one day. Each day copies of the Prayer Point were left at the prayer stations in each of the open churches, and also used for the prayer meeting(s) that day. Click to download.
