While I was writing this, my mind immediately flew back to Acts 2:47 where the early believers offered several intercessory prayer points for church growth.
What Are Prayer Points for Church Growth?
Intercessory prayer points for church growth are basically prayer offered to help the growth of the church.
These are prayers that make the winning of souls easier and ensure that more people are converted to believing in the Gospel of Christ.
Why Intercessory Prayer Points For Church Growth?
Intercessory Prayer for church growth is essential since winning souls is the core mandate given to Christians by Jesus’ Christ when He was on earth (And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature – Mark 16: 15).
It is the duty of every Christian to offer prayers for the church so that those who are yet to come to the light of the glorious Truth will receive Him.
Praying for the church is a way to ensure that the kingdom of hell is depopulated and that the message of the True Gospel is heard across the world.
Prayer For Church Growth: Historical Background
Back in the book of Acts, we saw how the church grew, multiplied. A look into Acts shows us how the early church moved from a few hundred to thousands and spread to several parts of the world.
Now, if you are starting a new church, it becomes all the more important for you to pray and even engage in welfare prayer points to see the new assembly grow.
So, you must offer prayer points for your new church because the enemy will want to stop it from growing.
Although they were forces against the growth of the church, the prayers of the believers were enough to ward off the resistance of the “gate of hell.
“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock, I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.” Mt 16:18
