Welcome is a website devoted to growing prayer in the local church.

The Church Prayer Leaders Network is for anyone who desires to see his or her church make prayer foundational to its entire ministry. Though designed specifically for the person in a local church (pastor or layperson) who has been given the task of leading prayer, the site and network is much broader than that. If you are in any type of ministry in your church, and have a heart for encouraging others to grow in prayer, this is for you. Pastors, small group leaders, intercessors, elders, youth and children's workers, worship leaders--anyone who leads and wants prayer to be central to what they do--will benefit from joining the CPLN.

Our desire is to encourage, challenge, and equip you to be a champion of prayer in your church.


Jonathan Graf
President, CPLN

Light a Fire!

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

For several years now, I’ve been shepherding a creative week by week 24-7 prayer experience called Light the Fire. A “torch” of prayer is passed between churches, colleges and missions organizations that participate throughout the year. Based on the Moravian Community of Herrnhut, which commenced a non-stop “prayer watch” in 1727 lasting over a hundred years, Light the Fire involves creative prayer stations that help to teach people how to engage with God in unique, kingdom-focused ways....More»»
