5 Different Types of Prayers prayed in Church

Posted in Religion

The Guest author Ashish Singh explains 5 different types of prayers prayed in a Church in this guest post.    Over to Ashish…

When was the last time you prayed in a church?

What you prayed for and for whom you prayed?

Did you pray for Staff? Leadership? Have you prayed for your Sunday School teacher?

Have you interceded on behalf of issues taking place in your church or decisions that need to be made?

Here are top 5 prayers prayed in a church in general for the mankind.

You can also offer these prayers for the safety and goodwill of your family and your closed ones.

The church on the rise reviews and will help you understand it in better ways.

The Prayer of Agreement

In Matthew 18:19, Jesus introduced the prayer of agreement when he said the following-
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”

The 9-5 workweek is no longer standard.   As you can see here, the people involved in the prayer have to agree with the prayer done in the prayer of agreement. You won’t be able to know what someone wants.
Better if someone wants to ask to pray in agreement with them then usually people ask for what especially you want them to pray for. By this way, both the person will be knowing what they are going to an agreement for in the prayer.

The prayer of Faith

The prayer of faith is also known as petition prayer and this is the prayer when people think of prayer. Petition prayer is between you and the god. Here it is you who ask the god for some specific outcome.

The key verse of the prayer of faith in Mark where Jesus says- “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” The rule here is when you pray and not after you pray.

The Prayer of Consecration and Dedication

In Luke 22:41-42, we see the prayer of Consecration and Dedication outlined. Jesus was praying in effect – If there is any other way to do this, let’s do it that way.” But the key for Jesus, and for us, is, “Nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.

The Prayer of Consecration and Dedication works when you have two or more godly alternatives before you and you don’t know what option to choose that time and you want God to help you. It is the belief that, the god will help you take the best decisions.

The Prayer of Intercession

Here Intercession means interceding—acting in prayer—on behalf of someone else. Here the person may not be able to pray for himself and so the prayer of Intercession needed. Here the person is sick or due to some other internal or external factors.

The Prayer of Binding and Loosing

The prayer of Binding and loosing is found in Matthew where Jesus says, “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”

  2. Hi Philip and Ashish,

    Great post. I’ve never really thought about the actual “different” types of prayer. I guess I pray a little bit of each type when I do.

    I’m just recently back to following Jesus and his Word and still have lots to learn and work on but I know my faith is growing each day.

    To answer the questions, the last time I prayed was in church on Wednesday evening at our Bible Study class. We prayed for those who came to the class and also for others that needed some type of prayer for faith, health, financial or whatever was needed.

    I don’t know how to pray the fancy prayers that some do and nothing against it. They say I will learn the longer I’m following Christ.

    I talk to him in prayer now just as a best friend sitting in the same room with me.

    God Bless and keep you. :)

  3. Hi Philip,

    Being thankful is a great way to gain more. Not just when you are praying to God but also when you are taking with others or thinking about others, being thankful help you feel good. It helps to boost mental power.

    It also attracts more people to you.

    Thanks for sharing!
