IGSL Prayer Movement

ABOUT

As leaders and ministers, pastors and missionaries, teachers and businessmen who want to influence the world with God’s love and power, we don’t deny the importance of prayer. But sometimes we don’t know how we can grow in our personal prayer lives, lead others in meaningful prayer or reflect with our time and priorities the crucial nature of prayer in our own walk with God and in the fruitfulness of our ministries.

As part of the holistic training we offer at IGSL, the prayer movement team seeks to offer opportunities for students to grow in prayer personally and to be equipped in leading prayer initiatives that will prepare them to lead praying communities in their home contexts.

The prayer movement invites involvement by all students, staff and faculty and offers the following regular prayer opportunities to the IGSL community.

Mondays – 7:30-8:30pm—Worship and Prayer in Koinonia

This meeting is led by a different student each week, and we focus on praying for each other, for IGSL and for the nations we represent.

Tuesday – 3:30-4:30pm—Women’s Prayer Meeting in the Prayer Garden

Women often play a significant role in uplifting their families and communities in prayer, and this is also true at IGSL. This meeting is led by the PIM students, with a different pair of women leading in prayer and worship each week. The ladies focus on praying for IGSL and the nations of the month using the IGSL monthly prayer bulletin, and each week they hear a testimony from a different woman and pray specifically for her family.

Wednesdays 6:15-7:15am—Devotional Prayer in Koinonia

Sometimes the best thing a leader can do is stop thinking about leading others for a moment and seek God for themselves. This prayer time is more of a prayer venue than a prayer meeting. There is no prayer leader, no agenda, no prayer points to get through. There is a room facilitator who will ensure a quiet and prayerful environment with instrumental music playing quietly in the background, and you can just come with your Bible and a journal and spend time with God.

Fridays 11:50am-12:20pm—Prayer for Muslims in the Prayer Garden

Do you have a burden to reach Muslims? Or maybe you have more fear of or anger for Muslims, but you want to have God’s heart for them. This is time to pray specifically for our Muslim friends and neighbors, Muslim Unreached People Groups around the world and ministries among Muslims.

2nd Friday of the month—“Recharge Worship Night” from 7-10pm in the chapel

This is the night we set apart to come to God as a community recognizing our need to be strengthened and refreshed by Him through worship, scripture meditation, silence, personal prayer and prayer for each other.

4th Friday of the month—“Prayer for the Nations” from 7-10pm in the chapel

This is the night we set apart to come to God as a community and pray for the church and the lost in each of the nations represented in our community. Each month prayer is focused on 2-3 nations and led by students from those nations.

In addition to the times we set aside to seek God together, there are two venues available for seeking God personally.

The prayer garden is a quiet and beautiful place set aside for prayer at any time of day or night.

 

 Prayer Room

The prayer room is a room set aside for prayer at any time of day or night, and equipped with devotional books and prayer tools to enrich your time with God. Below are a few guidelines for using the prayer room.

 1) Sign up on the sheet outside the room to reserve a slot in advance, but if there’s no reservation you may use this room without reserving. Please just log your name in the slot and enjoy!

 2) Leave your shoes at the door as a reminder to yourself that you are drawing near to God and as an indicator to others that the room is in use.

 3) This prayer room is for individuals or single-gender groups (married couples excepted). Feel free to pray alone or with your family or ISG-mates (but no ISG meetings). Children MUST be accompanied by an adult.

 4) No food allowed, but drinks in covered containers are okay.
