Chapter 8 – Getting Started And Keeping Going


Upon completion of this chapter you will be able to:

  • Make a plan for organized prayer.
  • Create a personal prayer manual.
  • Engage in international intercession.
  • Identify problems and solutions for getting started and keeping going.
  • Transform intercession from discipline to delight.
  • Commit yourself to the ministry of intercession.


During our study of intercessory prayer we have learned what it is, the spiritual resources provided to enable us to do it, and how to do this type of praying. We have also considered the model intercessor, the Lord Jesus Christ, and learned to identify and deal with hindrances to effective praying. This final chapter provides suggestions on how to get started and keep going in this ministry of intercessory prayer.
