At Gracepoint we believe in the awesome power of prayer and we are striving to be a community that is characterised by prayer. If you need prayer, we have a team in place that is ready to pray for you, or if you want to become part of the prayer ministry, we would love to have you onboard.
The Prayer Ministry consists of a dedicated prayer chain, the Two or More group, 24/7 prayer rooms, the Altar Prayer Team and Pre-service Prayer Team.
What is AWAKEN?
We believe that as the local church we have been called to pray for revival and believe that if we do not ready ourselves that God will pass us by.
We have responded to the call by setting up the Awaken Prayer Movement which will launched on the 21st January 2019 and will continue for 11 weeks.
All Gracepoint leaders are required and expected to take part. All the details pertaining to this Awaken Prayer Movement will be explained on the launch evening.
How does it work?
Leaders will be divided into ten teams, each team will be led by a pastor or elder of Gracepoint. Each team will be delegated a week to pray for revival including a specific theme of prayer associated with readying Gracepoint for a move of the Holy Spirit. The team on duty will meet corporately on the Monday mornings from 6-6:30am, of their designated week in the Gracepoint Sanctuary.
Regarding the eleventh week of prayer, all leaders are required to attend the final prayer gathering on the Monday evening in the Gracepoint Sanctuary.
The team on duty for each week will be prayed for daily, each participant by name, by the other leaders and the Prayer Team.
Each leader will receive a journal. This journal will contain each week’s theme with relevant verses, sample prayers and questions to meditate upon.
We can’t wait to see what God has in store for us individually, as the church and as a nation.
The vision is to grow the church through the Awaken Prayer Movement into all the churches across South Africa and wherever the Holy Spirit may lead.
24/7 Prayer Room
At Gracepoint we have a dedicated 24/7 Prayer Room where you can spend as much time as you need in reflective solitude with God, any time of the day or night, any day of the week.
Being a Christ follower means that one way we can stay connected with God is through prayer. Real focused prayer has the power to change and transform lives as well as all circumstances. God is always willing, but He encourages us to ASK, Seek and Knock, and he will respond.
(There are 2 venues for prayer, the Chapel and the Upper Room. The Upper Room is located above the Bishop’s office in the ‘tower’ section of the church. You can enter from there without having to access the church main building.) The Chapel can be located off the foyer after passing the information desk.
