Item description for And the Place Was Shaken: How to Lead a Powerful Prayer Meeting by John Franklin...
Overview Prayer for the church is not a casual practice but communion between Christ and His body that is as intimate as communion between a husband and a wife. And for the church, corporate prayer is not an optional ritual but a commanded expectation. However, having an effective corporate experience of prayer-whether in a large congregational setting or a small group-depends on many factors. John Franklin highlights not only the theology behind powerful corporate prayer times but also the effective habits and practices of a praying church. Know why God especially requires corporate prayer.

This Has it All! Dec 17, 2009
I am very pleased with my purchase. I needed to find good reading material to assist in the development of a prayer ministry at my church, and this book has what I need. I would recommend this to anyone who's looking to establish dynamic prayer meetings.
Not your parents' prayer meeting Apr 26, 2007
The Wednesday night prayer meeting used to be a regular fixture of many evangelical churches. Sadly, attendance at the prayer meeting has dropped drastically in recent decades. And I've noticed that when we do meet we often spend more time talking than praying.
John Franklin's book is a "how-to" for reinvigorating the church prayer meeting and making it an effective kingdom tool.
One of his most fundamental suggestions is to make sure the first part of every prayer meeting is devoted to kingdom issues. We have put this into practice in our church with great success.
