When the early church in Jerusalem prayed, an angel delivered Peter from execution. When Paul and Silas prayed, an earthquake shattered their prison door. God responds when His people unite their voices in prayer. So why is praying together a lost art for many Christians today? How can we reclaim the blessings of corporate prayer, and what can happen when we do?

 In The Lost Art of Praying Together, James Banks reminds us that where two or three are gathered together in the name of Jesus, Jesus himself is present and amazing things can happen. Through the Scriptures and other real-life stories, Dr. Banks encourages you to rediscover the power and the rewards of joining together in prayer.

This book is filled with practical insights and several helpful tools, including "Prayer Confidence Builders" and questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter.  Eight separate appendices provide even more practical information and helps for starting prayer groups and encouraging new life in existing groups and churches.

From the Back Cover:

 

If God invited you to meet with Him, would you take Him up on it? That’s exactly what He’s done. Jesus has promised that “where two or three come together in my name, there am I with  them” (Matthew 18:20). Praying together is an opportunity to enter into the presence of God in a unique and powerful way. But for many, praying together has become a lost art. Prayer meetings aren’t at the top of most Christians’ lists of favorite things to do. Author James Banks makes the case for praying together: “The more I look through the Old and New Testaments, the more I discover the unique blessings God offers His people when they pray together. Whenever something significant happens in the history of the church, people are praying together. The purpose of this book is to encourage Christians to rediscover the blessings of a healthy practice of praying together.”           Filled with biblical encouragement and practical insights, The Lost Art of Praying Together will help you make united prayer a priority—in your church, your family, and wherever God’s people are gathered together. Reflection questions make this book ideal for personal or group study, and appendices offer practical tips for organizing prayer groups. Amazing things happen when God’s people pray! “James Banks has unearthed some long-overlooked gems from God's Word and history about why praying together matters.  Here’s help for churches, prayer groups and families who hunger to see what God can do when His people pray.  The Lost Art of Praying Together is a timely and powerful work.”            -- Cheri Fuller, author of thirty books, including When Mothers Pray
