How Praying Together Shapes the Church

Stream or download the audio recording from this breakout session titled How Praying Together Shapes the Church with John Onwuchekwa that was delivered at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. Prayer is as necessary to the believer as breathing is to the body—but rarely does it come as naturally. In fact, prayer in the church often gets subtly pushed to the side in favor of pragmatic practices that promise tangible results. This workshop focused on the necessity of regular prayer as a central practice in the local church—awakening us to the need and blessing of corporate prayer by examining what Jesus taught about prayer, how the first Christians approached prayer, and how to prioritize prayer in our congregations.
