A Praying Life Cohort - Pastors

A Praying Life Cohort - Pastors

Online Cohort
12-Week A Praying Life Cohort
Schedule
Starting September 17
12 Cohort Meetings 10:30-11:45 AM 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 12-week cohort.

What is an online cohort?
In this highly personalized prayer training, you'll gather with an experienced prayer trainer and 7-8 other pastors on Zoom. Together, you'll build a set of 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.

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.

Schedule
One hour and 15 minutes per week for twelve weeks. (No meeting Thursday, November 26.)

There is a $150 fee for cohort participation.

Participants will need the 2017 edition of A Praying Life, available here.

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.
