Another creative prayer strategy is to create a Virtual Prayer Team. It's composed of people who pray for the ministry one day a month for one year. This creates daily prayer for the ministry. Here is how it works.
- Once a person signs up to join the prayer team, they receive a confirmation, which also assigns them a specific day of the month to pray. It's the same day of the month each month.
- The day before their assigned day to pray they receive a text reminding them the next day is their day to pray for the ministry. They pray as the Holy Spirit leads, but are also given the opportunity to pray about a matter that everyone is praying about for that particular month. The topic should be broad and related to the vision of the church.
- People on the Prayer Team are also provided with the opportunity to express their thoughts in various online communities, such a Facebook Group, etc.
