Mature in Prayer – Prayer Opportunities

Mature in Prayer – Prayer Opportunities


“How do we become mature in our prayer life? By praying.”

–  Henry Blackaby

I am trusting that you were refreshed at the Refresh Prayer conference last week. I hope you will get to know the five Lifestyle Prayer Ministries at Idlewild that were highlighted at the conference. They are Watchman on the Wall, Praylude, Prayer Triangles, Family Prayer Altar and Bless Every Home.

To start a Prayer Triangle, commit to pray in a group of three people for 15 minutes or more each week. That is, you and 2 others can pray by zoom, facetime, phone, in person or however you choose. Get with your group of 3 and choose your time to pray for each other and any topic. Watch for texts or emails with fresh prayer request from the Idlewild prayer ministries. If time is limited, simply pray your requests rather than sharing requests with each other before praying. This may contribute to consistency as you get started. Take more time and share requests before praying if it works best for you. Tailor the time to your own group as the Lord guides you, and be blessed as you grow together in prayer. Register at with 3 names, 3 cell phones and 3 emails or less if not available.

Watchman on the Wall has been updated and is alive and well! The wall is at Click on the button by the Watchman logo. Here a person can choose a time to pray and see how many people are praying at various times, and can also leave a personal prayer request or pray for someone else’s request. Prayer requests of pastors, leaders and ministries are printed and mailed monthly, and can also be seen at if you scroll down to the newsletters. You may even enjoy calling another watchman and praying together.

May you grow and mature in Christ as you pray in October.

Greg Murphy – Minister, Family Care
