This book explores the pastor-intercessor relationship in making our city a house of prayer by suggesting ways to rethink how we can interact with cross-denominational leadership, opening the way for unity to flourish.
Additionally, we provide guidelines for appropriate altar ministry and corporate prayer settings, prayers for youth and children, and tools for writing your own prayers addressing the mission and vision statement of your own, or other, ministries. We also address the business aspect of starting a ministry and walk the reader through the process of taking a small prayer group from the home into the community and making your city a house of prayer.
“Any book with a title like Make Your City a House of Prayer begs to be read! We in the USA are such an independent, individualistic bunch and often suffer from not praying and working together to advance His Kingdom in our cities and nation. Such heart unity, my colleagues and I have observed in many national prayer initiatives, is what facilitates the breakthroughs and transformations of the Lord even in impossible, discouraging, oppressive situations. We do need the kind of paradigm that Lynn Ferder shares in her book. She has much experience in personally living out this paradigm and in training many others to do so. Her guidelines for corporate, united prayer and the place of children and youth will also be extremely valuable. I heartily endorse this book and its wonderful theme. May it catch on across our nation and in other nations as well!”
