Teaching congregations how to listen to God and pray

Worship is about giving God glory; prayer in worship is talking to and listening to God. Intercessory prayer is listening to hear what God wishes you to pray about, and then praying. A congregation can learn to practice active listening for God’s whispering, to share that prompt with the congregation and to pray as a congregation for that person or situation. In an interview conducted for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, which is devoted to worship renewal in the Trinitarian tradition, Tom Swieringa, co-leader of Wyoming Kingdom Enterprise Zone, a church multiplication initiative in Wyoming, Mich., discusses ways to introduce and incorporate intercessory prayer as a regular part of worship. Read and download the edited interview from the institute’s website.
