The goal of the 2+2=More Prayer Link is to have every church praying for two other churches and have two churches praying for them. In 1 Corinthians 12, the Apostle Paul exhorts us that all the parts of the body should have equal concern for each other. Praying for each other is a simple and yet powerful way for churches to show concern for the other parts of the body. As we cover each other in prayer, we can expect to see more unity among churches, more of God’s power at work in our midst, and more impact for God’s glory in our Region.
The main emphasis as churches pray for each other is praying for churches to have a Kingdom impact as the people of the church live out God's calling for their lives. Each church should select a verse or short passage to be prayed over them by the other churches. Each church could also ask prayer for one key area of growth (examples: increased engagement in corporate prayer times, greater heart for evangelism, increase in community service, more small groups, etc.). Each church would have a contact person for the prayer link, so that churches could make occasional, applicable corporate prayer requests of their partner churches (for example if they were running a special outreach event). Each church would be free to organize praying for its partner churches in whatever way makes sense in the context of its structure.
Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them.
