From the Back Cover

Some churches have a culture of prayer that you can feel when you walk through their doors. But how did they achieve it? How do they maintain it? And can your church become a praying church, too?

In The Church That Prays Together, Elmer L. Towns and Daniel Henderson tell the real-life stories of 10 churches that have been transformed by a pervasive culture of prayer. From an explosion of prayer in a rural farming community in Jefferson, Oregon, to a total prayer program at a megachurch in Houston, Texas, these dynamic praying churches will inspire you as they share the principles they learned along the way. Get ready to reach new heights in prayer at your church!

By Rachel B. Ramey (blogger/author) VINE VOICE on March 1, 2010
Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure what to expect when I first heard about The Church that Prays Together: Inside the Prayer Life of 10 Dynamic Churches. I think I expected something largely biographical, but not very practical. To some degree, that's what I found, but it was much more practical than I had anticipated.

The introduction is followed by ten chapters. Each of the first nine chapters profiles one particular church, highlighting its unique approach to prayer. We're given some history of how the church arrived at that place, and then a description of how they pray. In some instances, jobs were shaky. In others, God drew individuals into these specific churches as He was starting something new, or the membership "just" felt a burden for the lost around them. In some instances, it wasn't anything this outstanding, but just a simple day-to-day dependence on the Lord. The churches reflect a variety of cultures, sizes, and geographical regions within the United States. Their approaches to prayer are varied, as well. The final chapter offers up a smorgasbord of prayer styles, ranging from solemn assemblies to conversational/"popcorn" prayer to using photographs for intercession.

All in all, there is a wide variety of prayer styles or methods featured. Some are fairly mundane; others are very creative. Probably not all will be useful or applicable to everybody, but most readers should find at least one or two ideas to "shake things up" a bit.

I really appreciated the overall focus of the book. Historically, every great revival has been preceded by great dedication to prayer, because we cannot do anything on our own; we need the empowering of the Holy Spirit.
