Item description for Partners In Prayer by John Maxwell ...
Overview Prayer is the bridge that allows pastors and lay people to partner together effectively in ministry. Writing in a warm, anecdotal style with lots of practical hands-on help, Maxwell describes how this method of support has been proven to work time and again in churches of all sizes. This book gives a complete plan to create a prayer-partner ministry in any local church.
"John I believe God has called me―a layman―to disciple, encourage, and pray for pastors. And the reason I came here today is so that I could pray for you."
With those words, respected leader, speaker, and author John Maxwell saw his agenda replaced by God's agenda. The stranger who felt God's calling to pray for this pastor fulfilled a need in Maxwell that he didn't even know he had―and fourteen years later, the results are evident at the 5,500 member Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, California.
"Partners in Prayer," the first book in the John Maxwell Church Resources series, shows church leaders and laypeople how to unleash the potential of prayer on behalf of themselves, one another, and the church. If your church―or private devotional life―is starving in the area of prayer and you want to tap into the power and protection prayer provides, Maxwell gives practical insight into
the fundamentals of prayer
improving personal prayer life
praying for others, including church leaders
building a prayer partners ministry in the local church
encouraging prayer revival nationwide
Are you missing out on God's gift and blessing of prayer?Is there someone you know who would benefit from your committed prayers on their behalf? Despite God's promise of the power of prayer to change our world, many of us never experience it. John Maxwell shows you how to strentghen your prayer life and reap the benefits awaiting those who become "Partners in Prayer."
"I speak for thousands who will benefit from this book when I say, John Maxwell is a friend to all who dream of a growing Kingdom." ―Max Lucado From the Foreword

This book was released in churches all over America along with an excellent video on creating pastoral prayer teams. I've used the combination to start prayer teams in several churches. If your church does not have an organized team that lifts your pastor in prayer this book will help you create one.
I will be honest about one drawback. This book effectively uses several studies to highlight the struggles many pastors wrestle with. However, some of these studies are now over a decade old.

As a pastor I strongly recomend that each and every lay person and board member read this book. It is encouraging and insightful, it will challenge each person to a deeper prayer life.
Very real experiences to back up the principles taught. Jun 17, 1998
