If you’re a new church planter or a member of a new faith community, you may have your friends, family, and colleagues in your corner.
What if we told you that you could have 1,000 intercessors praying for you as well?
That’s what our new church-wide initiative, Water the Plants, is all about.
Water the Plants is bringing together 1000 intercessors to pray for the leaders and congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) New Church Movement.
The challenges of starting a church are unique. Prayer is a vital component in congregation and community development. This program aims to gather a team of dedicated supporters of new worship expressions to prioritize the spiritual discipline of prayer. Based on 1 Corinthians 3:6, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow,” we will take a proactive approach to “watering” DOC church “plants” with prayer (Living Water).
The team will gather for regular calls and provide the Body of Christ with a calendar to serve as a guide for collective prayer. If you are interested in participating, we ask that you commit to praying for the ministries and leaders of the New Church Movement. You will receive a Prayer Calendar that will guide daily and weekly prayers during your own personal prayer times as well as during our Group Prayer times led by a New Church Ministry Prayer Leader. In addition, you will receive regular communication prayer reminders as well as a physical prayer reminder of your choice.
As part of their Covenant Agreement, intercessors will be expected to embrace a lifestyle of prayer, regularly join a prayer group by phone, and more.
