Revival starts when people pray together.
Christians often dream about the possibility of revival. But revival doesn't come because we wish or plan for it. Revival occurs when groups of people pray together. However, praying together effectively doesn't come easily, and we're often left wondering how to best engage in the work of intercession.
Carolyn Carney offers a practical guide for those who want something more than "just another prayer meeting." Drawing from decades of ministry experience, The Power of Group Prayer includes stories and practices for corporate prayer, reflection questions, and supplemental resources to help build powerful intercession groups. Pastors, small group leaders, and campus ministry leaders-or anyone who wants a deeper prayer life-will be equipped to lead others in the kind of prayer that is necessary for effective, resilient ministry.
Praying together has the power to transform you and the world around you. Come to a place of deep intimacy with God as you learn ways to pray in community.

Review quote

"Carolyn Carney has given us a beautiful book with a rich theological and historical context on leading prayer. Carolyn embodies what she teaches as a transformational leader journeying for decades among students. Nothing is more powerful than a well-lead prayer meeting in this our fragile twenty-first century."

Mac Pier, founder of and author of The Power of a City at Prayer

"Do you know there are gifted intercessors hiding in plain sight in your churches and fellowships? Maybe you are one of them. The wise and practical teaching offered here will unlock God's good gifts and ignite renewal and transformation in the church. Don't let this book sit on the shelf. Put The Power of Group Prayer into practice and watch the revival begin!"

Connie Anderson, national director of intercessory prayer, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA
