A Praying Life Cohort - Men and Women

A Praying Life Cohort - Men and Women

Online Cohort
10-Week A Praying Life Cohort
Schedule
Starting January 26
10 Cohort Meetings 4:00-5:15 PM ET
Many of us pray badly, yet we long to connect with our Father.

If you struggle with keeping a consistent prayer life, we invite you to learn to pray in community through this 10-week cohort.

What is an online cohort?
In this highly personalized prayer training, you'll gather with an experienced prayer trainer and 7-8 others on Zoom. Together, you'll build a set of 5 or more personal prayer cards that you’ll use to pray through key areas in your lives. Each week, you will experience the accountability and encouragement of praying together. As you see God at work in one another’s lives, you will grow in wisdom and faith.

Note: This cohort is open to men and women.

What happens in a cohort meeting? 
We learn to pray, and we pray. We learn through a book study, open discussions, and applying new ideas in our personal lives. Then we pray through five key areas in each of our lives and begin to watch, together, what God does. Seeing God at work in the lives of others encourages you to keep asking—even when you don’t yet see movement in your own prayer story.

There is a $149 fee for cohort participation. 

Participants will need the 2017 edition of A Praying Life.

Meet Bob Allums
A Praying Life Director

Bob Allums (M.Div), A Praying Life Director for seeJesus, has taught over 100 prayer seminars around the world in countries including Morocco, Turkey, England, Spain, and Australia. Bob, who served in pastoral ministry for 14 years, gauges the success of a conference not by comments such as, “That was great!” but by declarations like, “I can actually do this now!” Bob is co-presenter, along with Paul Miller, on seeJesus’ Launch Into Prayer Cards course. Anyone who has worked, worshipped, or even been in the same room with Bob for long knows that his one-of-a-kind laugh is nearly 100% contagious. Bob and his wife, Helen, have three married children and one grandson and live in central Florida.

This is for men and women together?

Yes! One member of a cohort for men and women said,

"Men and women are just different! We need each other. We need to be able to speak into and pray over each other's lives as brothers and sisters in Christ, and to have the opportunity to do that in the cohort was so valuable to me.... This is the community so often missing from churches."

 

Julie Gaking will be co-leading with Bob.

What People Are Saying About Prayer Cohorts

The prayer cohort has been a boot camp for my soul. Just like any other life skill, training and practice in prayer are critical to improvement... and this cohort has provided just what I needed.

Kevin Wing

Prioritizing prayer in this way was transformative for me - I realize how much I had made prayer about me instead of about God. I was convicted of many sins that have plagued and taken away from my prayer life (enter repentance card...), as well as challenged to grow in thankfulness (and thanksgiving card!). God is so good! I was truly blessed to have gone through the prayer cohort with my leader and the rest of my group, and am excited to see how God will continue to work in all our stories. 

Megan Cai

The Praying Life cohort I participated in changed my life forever. It was helpful, life-giving, and encouraging as I learned I'm not alone in my struggle to pray. It helped me to not only grow in my desire to talk to God more, but also in my love for Him.

James Pavlic

Prayer is often the first thing sacrificed as we try to finish our daily to-do list. But prayer focuses our attention on our Heavenly Father who grants us the grace and strength that we daily need. And when we pray with other brothers, we see our Father working not only in our lives but in each other's lives.

Ruben Sernas

This helped my feeling of isolation as I discovered I'm not the only one that struggles, gets tired, and fails. After weeks of praying with these men, they may be my closest friends.
