Personal Prayer Partners

Seek His Face Ministries
Personal Prayer Partners

Every “Core Group” participant for SHFM is encouraged to become a Personal Prayer Partner to someone else in the ministry, developing a relationship with one or more praying friends.
Personal prayer partners pray together weekly–or even daily. Their prayers should be for personal needs as well as for the ministry and community. Sometimes two or more prayer partner groups may choose to meet together for united prayer.
The personal prayer partner concept has a scriptural basis:
“Two are better than one,because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!Though one may be overpowered,two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Eccl. 4:9, 10, 12.

There is unusual power in united prayer. God has planned for His people to join together in prayer, not only for Christian fellowship, spiritual nurture, and growth, but also for accomplishing His divine purposes and reaching His chosen goals. (Wesley L. Duewell, Mighty Prevailing Prayer, Zondervan, ©1990, page 123.)
Jesus emphasized this truth when He said, For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. (Matt. 18:20.)
The person who has an active prayer partner relationship with two or three others is not easily overcome by Satan and will find joy in praying God's blessings down upon the church.

Each week a Daily Bible Reading will be available to include in the Personal Prayer Partners Ministry.

Tips to Keep in Mind:

Ask the Lord to teach you to pray. (Luke 11:1-13.)
Make a decision to devote time for personal devotions each day.
Attend the Life Changing Power of Prayer class. Read and study the book
Pray for Pastor Bullock and leaders in the ministry
Identify what you feel are the needs within the ministry and pray for: unity, revival, ministry, etc.
Pray for individuals and situations as the needs present themselves. (Be careful how you share personal issues)
Study the Bible for examples and principles of prayer: Neh. 4; Eze. 37 and 47; Isa. 50:4; Dan. 9; Matt. 6:9-15, etc.
Read books on prayer and share your insights with your prayer partner. Ask the Lord to guide in choosing whom you should pray for.
Pray also for world government and your city and neighborhood that the good news of the gospel may reach everyone.
Remember that your prayers for others will only be as powerful as your own personal prayer life. Praying with your prayer partner should not take the place of daily personal prayer time.

Remember this is a time of prayer FIRST
Hold each other accountable to the sacred time for prayer
