Prayer Groups are an excellent way for Christians to meet and support each other. But do you know the 3 simple signs that your prayer group is following the word of the lord? Check out these tips to see if your group needs a tune-up!

1. Be Kind to Each Other

Too often, members of a prayer group fail to be respectful and kind. Even when sharing the love of the lord, a failure to love one another can be a major cause to a prayer group failing.

Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.

If you're in a prayer group and it seems like there's people could be a little nicer to eachother, try this prayer:

Lord God, you have given us the key to living in your kingdom through this simple but profound rule.  Help me to always do to others whatever I would want them to do to me.  Amen.

2. Pray for Each Other

It might seem obvious, but sometimes prayer groups don't get traction because no one is praying!

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

If members of your prayer group don't seem to be praying for each other, make sure you call on them to do so! After all, if they've joined the group, they want to help, so be sure to remind them.

3. Live Events

This one might surprise you, but engaging your prayer group sometimes takes a little more than just words! If one of your members has a talent like singing, playing music, or making art, get your whole group together to experience that unique form of worship.

 O Lord, I pray that the music I make or the songs that I sing are always from my heart to You. I pray that as we sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, we genuinely dedicate each melody to You. I pray that I always give You thanks for all things, in Jesus' Name. I thank You for this talent You have given me, I choose to give it back to You by using it to glorify Your Name, Amen.

There are ways to get your whole group together, like Facebook Live, or Youtube, to share with one another your love for Jesus Christ.

We hope you loved these tips for making sure your prayer group is running as best it can, and in God's image!
