From the Back Cover

Imagine what God can do with a church totally dependent upon Him! Your church can be that church. It can become a prayer-saturated church!

More and more churches are recognizing the importance of prayer for life and power in the church. But making prayer more foundational is a challenging task for pastors and prayer leaders. The Prayer-Saturated Church provides all the step-by-step, practical help any pastor or prayer leader needs to mobilize, organize, and motivate believers to make their church a house of prayer. Written by a veteran prayer leader with years of hands-on experience in local church prayer, The Prayer-Saturated Church will enable any church - no matter what the size - to take prayer to the next level and saturate its ministry in prayer!

This is, without question, the best book I've ever read on how to evolve a church prayer ministry into a true "House of Prayer." The book is easy to read, with a helpful CD included, and every page and chapter is pertinent in some way, so that you can pick and choose whatever is the best mix for your church prayer initiatives as time and resources become available.

Cheryl Sacks is the co-founder of the Church Prayer Leaders Network. In her book Cheryl has provided us with a template to centralize and expand prayer ministries in the church. A church of any size, any denomination, with any level of resources could benefit from implementing Cheryl's suggestions.

I became our church's prayer coordinator just a few months ago. Using The Prayer Saturated Church as a map, we have already strengthened our vibrant ministry, encouraged our pastors, improved communication, engaged more members in prayer and have begun to teach everyone how to pray more effectively.

The CD is very helpful for organizing the ministry and saves time by providing useful handouts. What a blessing!!

Format: Paperback
The Prayer Saturated Church is Divinely outfitted with inspiring and faith building insights regarding many aspects of prayer for today both individually and for the church. The clarity and simplicity by which the author, Cheryl Sacks, thoroughly covers such a broad spectrum of prayer with depth and practicality evidences the fruit of pray in her life and that of the Church experiences of today.

Effective prayer is our mandate in these pivotal days. The Prayer Saturated Church accompanied by a CD inventory of helpful prayer tools and guides is an answer to pray for the equipping of the Church. This book and associated materials is an essential arsenal for the beginning and committed prayer warrior in the pursuit of personal development or corporate development as an instructional resource for praying groups, Church Sunday schools, prayer networks and Christian academic institutions.

Format: Paperback
The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive resource for utilizing prayer in the local church and show how prayer has transformed churches and communities. It was prayer that turned around a rapidly declining church in the early 90's- Biltmore Baptist- into a now thriving church with more than 800 intercessors. This book characterizes a praying church in the following ways:
- members have a strong devotional life and invest time praying for others.
- they relate to God through prayer by understanding who God is.
-prayer is modeled before the congregation by leaders
- prayer is not considered a "program" but part of church life.
- God's presence permeates the house
Author Cheryl Sacks knows that selecting a prayer coordinator is essential and should characterize one that already has a sound prayer life, is a seasoned Christian, and a team player that enjoys serving others. Full support is required by the senior pastor.
A prayer team should consist of people that have great people skills, character, and are able to communicate clearly while maintaining confidentiality. Satan's strategizes in trying to immobilize the church in moving to new levels. There must be select individuals that pray continually for the Pastor.
A sense of community can be achieved as churches come together to collectively pray. All this takes time and diligent effort but Cheryl Sacks believes lives can be transformed and church can become a powerhouse of strength and God's glory. "When prayer is absent, the heavens are closed and demonic and worldly influences have free rein. However, when Christians in a given community begin to pray, a canopy of God's presence and protection is raised."
Enjoy this informative book as it will spark prayer in your heart.

For several years I have been using this text in the online Prayer Ministries course that I teach at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary. Even months after completing the course, students report the ongoing impact that The Prayer-Saturated Church has made on their lives and ministries.

When I was appointed prayer leader of our church at the beginning of this year, I really didn't know where to start. A friend loaned me this book (of course, I have my own book now) and I have found it invaluable. It's the real nuts and bolts of prayer ministry; for those desiring to see their church become a House of Prayer. A MUST HAVE!!

Format: Paperback
I have a strong belief that prayer is the foundation of every truly successful Christian organization. As such, I have been considering expanding the prayer ministry within our local congregation and encouraging our city-wide coalition of churches and ministries to move to the next level. This book provides the details on how to accomplish those goals.

The purpose of this book is clearly stated in the sub-title, "A comprehensive handbook for prayer leaders." Ms Sacks states that thousands of pastors and prayer leaders know of the need to make prayer a priority in their church, but don't know where to begin. She wrote this book "to help fill the gap-to provide comprehensive, practical, and strategic material for mobilizing prayer in the local church."

The author spends little time writing about the need for prayer and the lack of it in the local church. She assumes the reader is a mature christian who understands the importance of prayer and has a passion for making their church a "house of prayer." She is obviously a checklist-oriented personality, and this is a real strength of this book.

Much of the text focuses on the relationship between the pastor and the prayer leader. Each needs the other. Prayer leaders don't have pulpits. Pastors have many competing responsibilities. Ms Sacks even provides the agenda for the first meeting between the prayer leader and the pastor.

Ms Sacks emphasizes the importance of developing a prayer leader team, instead of a lone-hero leadership approach. She talks of the need for a leadership team, who should be on the team, how should the team operate, etc.
