How to Pray with People Through Online Ministry

Praying with people is a central part of online ministry—it’s why we built dedicated prayer tools in the Platform. But, for some hosts, praying with people virtually can be challenging, awkward, or overwhelming. 

Over the last 14 years, the Life.Church Online ministry has refined and revised a detailed, in-depth guide for its hosts, and we’re sharing it with you! Inside the “Church Online Hosts: Prayer Resources” guide, find questions, prayer prompts, and scriptures for more than 20 common prayer topics like finances, marriage, abuse, and sickness. 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says –

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

While some circumstances can be difficult (or maybe even uncomfortable) to pray over, we see in the scriptures that God desires for us to pray over each and every situation.

Last week, we also released the “Church Online Hosts: Complete Guide”—equip your hosts with proven approaches, fine-tuned phrasing for common issues, communication tips, and online-specific strategies for serving attenders and helping them grow closer to Jesus. 

Your hosts are the face of your church. It is important that they feel equipped to serve every person that enters the doors (or online platform) of your building. This guide focuses on equipping your hosts for online ministry.

Community is still very possible through an online service, and that is thanks to you hosts. Your hosts are here to greet and welcome attenders. This 3 part series will teach you how your hosts can improve engagement from attenders.

Download and use both guides for free; it’s our honor to help you reach people for Christ online.
