Prayer meetings are no longer held at many churches and sparsely attended at others, and when held are often dry and uninteresting. Why? Lack of clear, biblical leadership has largely been the fault.
It is hardly possible to over-estimate the value of the prayer-meeting, as it stands related to the life and usefulness of the Church of Christ. In fact, no other service can be compared with this in importance -for without a live prayer-meeting the church will be spiritually cold, the Sabbath services will be formal (or in some cases too informal), and the children will be fed with husks instead of provisions from the Master's table.
In this book, Lewis Thompson beautifully and clearly offers solutions to the age-old complaints about prayer meetings. No more must prayer meetings be given a backseat in the list of priorities in churches today. In the chapters of this book, Thompson addresses topics such as The Importance of Prayer Meetings, How to Make Prayer-Meetings Interesting, Helps to Speaking in Public, Songs and Singing, How to Secure Prayer-Meeting Attendance, The Need for Preparation, Topics and Illustrations, Bible Readings, How to Keep the Prayer-Meetings Hot, and more.
