PRAYER WEEKEND – PRAYER PODS
“We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.” (Andrew Murray)
Each quarter during Mission Discipleship’s prayer weekend invite people to come together for one hour to pray with us for the items on our heart for that prayer weekend. You choose the day (Saturday or Sunday), the time and location.
General Topics: Israel & The Church
We’ll notify you of more specifics to target in prayer prior to the prayer weekend.

2nd Quarter Prayer Weekend: Saturday – Sunday – May 19-20, 2018
This is a strategic weekend as it coincides with
the Biblical Feast of Shavuot (May 20) (Lev. 23:15-21)
which is the day the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Acts 2 Church
- God’s anointing flows when a people come together in unity. (Psalm 133)
- Praying together builds our relationship with Jesus and with each other.
- It allows us to participate with God’s will being done on the earth and positions us all to hear the words “well done good and faithful servant.”
- Praying together has always been the precursor to spiritual awakening.
- Praying together aligns us with God’s perfect will on earth as it is in heaven.
- Praying together is a lot of fun and very enjoyable.
- Praying together builds God’s Church.
- Prayer Pod leaders will be encouraged to send us their prayer requests so we can pray for them here in Israel.
Prayer-Pod Ideas & Encouragements
- Host your prayer-pod at your local church.
- Host it at your home, or at the home of a friend who has the gift of hospitality.
- Host it at a local coffee shop or restaurant and be a witness to those around you.
- Invite friends and family members and use the time as a discipleship opportunity regarding prayer.
- Your meeting can be as elaborate or as simple as you like with regard to refreshments.
- Prayer weekends are great opportunities for you to flex your spiritual muscles with regard to prayer and fasting.
- Start your meeting by taking communion together.
- Have printed hand-outs of prayer agenda to help stay on topic. We’ll be sending those to you.
- Write down scriptures or prophetic words the Lord gives to people during your time together.
- Make sure you honor the time commitment that you set beforehand. For example, if you told people you were praying for one hour make sure you let folks know that they’re free to leave at the time that you set, even if your prayer time goes longer than planned.
- Make praying fun. Prayer is speaking and listening to God. Encourage everyone to listen for His voice as you read the prayer pointers we’ll be sending you. Allow for discussion, but don’t let discussion take up all your time. Don’t forget you’ve come together to pray.
