IM TEXT PRAYER TEAM

IOM Reaf Logo.png

Here are a few tips for the IM Prayer Team

 

General Guidelines

 

  • IOM corporate will customize initial requests for prayer.

  • The manager of the IM Text App will review each request.

  • The manager will then assign the request to an IM Prayer Team member.

  • In the meantime, a timely personal response is sent to the recipient.

  • The manager may place you in one of two categories –pray for the need or an interactive role with the recipient. This will be up to the manager.

  • The manager will keep you up to date regarding answered prayers.

  • If the manager opens up direct communication between you and the recipient, never give them your last name or where you live. Our guidelines do not allow Prayer Team members to give out email addresses, social media links, or any other ways of revealing your private information. Your job is to pray and offer Scriptural support. That’s it.

  • If the manager decides to have you remain as an inactive (no direct contact with the recipient) prayer warrior – simply pray as led regarding the requests put before you.

 

Interactive Prayer Team Members

 

  • Never offer your private information. If put on the spot, you tell them it is ministry policy to keep such information private.

  • Always be personal by using their first name only. For example, "Hi [recipient's name]. My name is [Your first name only]. I'm so sorry to hear that you're struggling with that. That must be incredibly challenging..."

  • Don't be afraid to ask a follow-up question. Prayer Request: “Please pray for me. This 
    time of year is so difficult for me.” Your Response: “Hi. My name is [Your first name only]. I’m so sorry to hear that this is a challenging time of year for you. May I ask what specifically is making this time of year so difficult?” Hopefully in this scenario, the requestor will provide a little more information, and you can pray for them more specifically. If they say no, or if some time goes by and they choose not to respond, go ahead and say a prayer for them anyways.

  • Don't try to "fix" their problems, it's not your job. If the situation requires legal or discipleship counseling, contact the IM Prayer Team manager immediately. While it may be tempting to provide someone reaching out for prayer with helpful advice or a solution to their problems, the heart of this digital resource is to pray with and for people in need and make a personal connection.

    Follow-Up With Them In a Few Weeks. This is where you can really show people that you are sincere and that you care about their needs. Commit to praying for this person on an ongoing basis, and then set a reminder to follow up with them.

 

THE NEXT STEP

Some Need To Learn How To Pray

The Book of Prayers, Learning To Pray Covenant Prayers. If we don’t align our thinking with the New Covenant message, our prayer requests will take the pathway of selfish praying. New Covenant thinking is all about fulfillment versus asking for things – it is more like claiming what is already true about us and the allotment of our daily circumstances. Without this modality of thinking, the enemy will shift our focus from accepting existing sovereignty to begging for God to change His sovereignty to match our panic and fears. Note. He will not change His eternal plan to match humanity’s needs. However, since He knows what your needs are before you pray, He will fulfill all the requests that match His predestined care for you.  ORDER OR REVIEW HERE

Pray for...

  1. The battle of cancelling the authentic Church from global impact.

  2. The Church, as they slip into the modalities of global passivity - the lukewarm Church.

  3. The deconstruction movement of faith, Christ Jesus, and the Church.

  4. Christians as they are tempted to be captivated in movements versus Jesus Christ.

  5. All believers as they are faced with 'fake' grace versus the GRACE of Christ from within.

  6. The Church as they as a corporate body are fading into Socialism vs. the Monarchy of God.

  7. The revival of the heart - for all those who claim to have the Life of Christ.

  8. The release of the Holy Spirit within all authentic born-again believers.

  9. Those that persecute authentic believers. Ask the Lord to use persecution to activate the Body of Christ.

  10. All believers to refute 'fear' as a default when faced with persecution, distress, and difficulties.

  11. All real-deal Christians to shift from culture to ministry. Meaning, believers will use distress and difficulties to motivate themselves, and others, to step up and share the indwelling message of Christ in you.

  12. The Body of Christ to view the 'end times' as a modality/method of advancing the antichrist to 'do his thing' according to the timeline of God's closure of humanity. The Word says, those who study Revelations's book will be blessed. All authentic believers need this blessing.

  13. All those who lead small, and large fellowships throughout the world. Pray that each will lead their people with the identified Truths of 'Christ in you.'

  14. Indwelt children of God to refute the issue of anti-authority. That each would learn, or relearn the power of supporting/submitting to quality Christ-as-Life leaders. 

  15. The IOM America leadership Board, that each would remain focused on the mission and doctrines of 'Christ in you.' 

  16. Dr. Stephen Phinney as he leads on & off learners with the priorities established by his leadership.

  17. Each of the paid and volunteer workers who serve within the outreach of IOM America. Pray for their focus, work ethic, families, and the distresses that come with working within a Christ-as-Life ministry. 

  18. All the leaders & workers the ministry has equipped worldwide - that each would populate the mission, methods, and purposes of the Exchanged Life and 'Christ in you.'

  19. The health of those that struggle with daily pain and suffering as they work within our ministry.

  20. The training process of our new Associate to the Founder. This is a critical position within our ministry structure. This person needs to learn all facets of our ministry.

  21. Our accounting staff & donors. They work to keep this little ministry afloat. The roles of both the accounting people AND our donors is critical in maintaining the success of our mission.

  22. Our viewers/readership. This is our audience. While our numbers grow daily, we are passionate regarding reaching their souls for ministry. Pray against passivity. We do what we do to make disciples in Christ for His work of service to a lost and depraved world. We care about their growth, but only for the purpose of each advancing the Life of Christ.

  23. Our local fellowship, XL-Church. Even though we provide this service globally (Via Zoom), we experience mockery, and attacks on this work from local and online observers.
