Just one short hour, well spent in brief sharing of prayer concerns or praises followed by prayer is powerful. We encourage early arrival so that the first half hour of sharing around the circle will include everyone. Latecomers may miss out on their sharing time, and no one dominates sharing time. We have a few written suggestions to help the process move smoothly. We keep track of the time and when the clock hits the half hour mark, we move into prayer. Then when the clock hits the hour mark, the facilitator closes. It’s that simple! (the guidelines below are easily customizable to your group name and meeting time. We are here to help)
We have been using this format since Fall of 2010; for those who pray together in person it works exceedingly well! In one short hour we are able to get a lot of prayer in, make meaningful connections, and help with many issues our HOOs are facing. Those who cannot join in person are encouraged via email to send in their requests to be prayed for by the moms praying in person. If an emergency arises, or is of an extremely serious nature, we will alert the entire roster of undergrad and grad momsHOO’ asking them to pray immediately.
