What’s so special about agreeing in prayer? Is it more powerful, or somehow more effective than when we pray to God one-on-one? In this week’s episode, we discuss this and other questions, and take a look at some biblical examples of “praying in agreement”.
God designed the Body of Christ to function as many parts of a whole, and prayer is no exception. While there are tremendous benefits to praying alone, there’s something powerful about coming together in corporate prayer. Our discussion today focuses on different types of corporate prayer, the benefits of praying with a group, and even some ways you can bring more power to your prayer meetings.

Our collective science nerd comes out this week as we discuss the science of prayer. While prayer is a spiritual practice, even among the scientific community there is no doubt that prayer has an impact on the physical body as well, particularly the brain. We hope you’ll enjoy taking a look at the scientific side of one of God’s greatest gifts to humanity.
Does prayer really make a difference? If God knows everything and is truly in control, isn’t he just going to do what he wants in the end anyway? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, you won’t want to miss this week’s discussion about prayers and fatalism.
There are certain prayer meeting mistakes we can all relate to. This week, we take a lighthearted look at several ways not to pray corporately.

We often think of prayer as talking to God, but sometimes neglect being still and simply listening. In this episode, we discuss different ways we can hear God’s voice, as well as pitfalls to avoid as we listen.
If the word “resolutions” makes you cringe a little, you aren’t alone! We all have good intentions for the new year, but most of us have trouble following through. So what does a “prayer resolution” look like? Is it even worth making? Find out the answers in this week’s episode.
What better way to bring in the New Year than to pray? This week's episode isn't just all about prayer - it's literally all prayer! We wanted to take time to cover as many topics as our thirty minute podcast would allow, so we hope you'll join us for an opportunity to saturate the coming year with the power of corporate prayer.
Have you ever prayed a prayer of dedication? This week, we talk about some biblical examples of this kind of prayer, and offer up some ideas to get you thinking about areas where prayers of dedication could enrich your prayer life!

We often think of prayer as a spiritual discipline, but if you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we see prayer and practical, everyday life as inseparable. This week, we discuss prayerful productivity: how to invite God into your plans, and how it can ultimately make you more productive…but not always in the way you might think!
Do you ever incorporate fasting with your prayer, or think it’s an antiquated practice? Join us as we explore some Biblical accounts of fasting to uncover what fasting is, what it isn’t, and when and why it can be beneficial for us today!

Have you ever felt like God is silent, despite your best efforts to elicit a response? In a continuation of last week’s episode “Knowing God’s Will” we will talk about some times in our own lives when God has seemed silent, as well as offer up some helpful tips to help you wait patiently and faithfully when you find yourself unable to hear his voice.
It would be presumptuous - even dangerous - to think we could ever fully know the mind of God. But scripture tells us that it is possible to know at least some portion of God’s “good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:2). So how do we know what God’s best is for us, particularly when making difficult decisions? What role does prayer play in discerning it? What about when we get it wrong? Tune in to the Prevailing Prayer Podcast this week for an honest discussion about the often confusing topic of knowing God’s will.
A prayer from the mouth of Jesus, teaching us to pray – what a gift! Have you ever wondered how we should handle this prayer? Is it too ritualistic to recite it word-for-word? Is it wrong to tamper with it and make it our own? We will discuss these questions, and try to get to the heart of Jesus’ teaching in this episode about the Lord’s Prayer.
There’s really no greater investment of our time than praying for children.

This week, we’re discussing the prayers before you pray: “preliminary prayers.” In this episode, learn about some prayers we can pray before we even begin to bring our hearts’ desires to God, and what times these prayers can be especially helpful.
Do you have a prayer burden? If your answer was no, or if you have no idea what a prayer burden is, you may actually have one but not know it yet! You won’t want to miss this discussion about the issues, places, and people God impresses on our hearts and how we can more faithfully recognize them and use them as a springboard for powerful, world-changing prayers!
