The Prayer Engine is a customizable, web-based, prayer wall and moderation system. The Prayer Engine was developed by Eric Murrell, a web strategist at a large multi-campus church. After seeing the frustrations and limitations of the email prayer chains that many ministries rely on, Eric set out to develop an affordable tool that would be a better fit for the needs of a modern prayer ministry. The Prayer Engine provides consistency, moderation and sharing functionality that are light-years ahead of an email list, making it the ideal fit for your ministry.

No partner is more important than prayer partners. Planting a church is a big deal. Satan does not want you to succeed. Surrounding yourself and your team with prayer partners is the single best thing you can do to ensure success. Many church planters underestimate the amount of spiritual warfare they will face over the six to twelve months leading up to opening day. Prayer must be a priority for the church planter. In addition to personal prayer, the Church Planter should solicit a growing prayer team. As a top priority, the Church Planter should form an initial prayer team with at least 10 people praying regularly for him.

Matthew Henry (1662-1714), beloved commentator on the Scriptures, completed a book on prayer in March of 1712, after serving for 25 years in pastoral ministry in England. Hence, it reflects a lifetime of prayer, ministry, and Christian experience. Its full title was A Method for Prayer with Scripture Expressions proper to be used under each head. In it, Henry lays down an outline of a plan for prayer (Adoration, Confession, Petition, Thanksgiving, Intercession, and Conclusion) and supplies the contents of prayer from the Scriptures themselves. The website unpacks the book in a creative way with multiple foreign languages.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
