Prayer Room Checklist
A Team leader will be assigned to be in authority at all times. All final
decisions are at the discretion of this person. Those assigned to this
position must not leave the prayer room during their shift, but be accessible
at all times. When a problem arises this person is to negotiate or communicate
the needed solutions. Their decision is final.
When applicable, individuals of a prayer team will be given personal assignments.
These assignments are accountable to the team leader during the duration
of the prayer room shift.
The Prayer Task Force is responsible for the majority of oversight of
prayer room activities, candidates and schedules. Prayer team assignments
are given with consideration of openings, prayer gifting, motivations
and experience. This is to better target the needs of those we are praying
for. Please do not take it personally when you are excluded from some
prayer room activities as some prayer duties are solely at the discretion
of the pastoral staff, not the prayer task force. This is to protect you
and the liability of the church. Please heed all procedures carefully.
Pay special attention to those issues, which pertain to counselling, gender
issues and deliverance prayer.
Situations will arise that the prayer room will be closed except to specific
authorized prayer ministry staff. This is to protect the confidentiality
of those who have requested special scheduled prayer.
New prayer ministry applicants will be allowed to observe general prayer
room activities. These are those who have completely filled out the protocol
check list to the satisfaction of the prayer ministry office.
Any one can use the prayer room during off scheduled hours from e.g. 12
noon through 4:30 PM daily to seek the Father. Available times are posted
outside the prayer room door.
All those using the prayer room for the first time are required to read
and sign the checklist of general prayer room protocols. The prayer room
must continue to be a safe environment for all that use it. For this reason,
when the prayer room is unattended it will remain locked. This is to protect
you and the church. The key to the prayer room can be obtained from the
prayer ministry office or church secretary. You will be required to leave
your driver's license at the office, which will be returned to you when
the key is returned.
Inappropriate gender mix will not be allowed together in the prayer room
unless married to the individual. This pertains usually to one man and
one woman alone together. Final decision will be made at the issuance
of the key in consideration of age, number of individuals utilizing the
prayer room and maturity of those in attendance.
This is our policy for hand contact while praying for any individual male
or female. Hand contact may be to the hands or forehead only. Otherwise
hands are to be kept at least 6'' from those requesting to receive prayer
unless otherwise noted prior to prayer ministry by the pastoral staff.
Always allow the team leader to know where you are. Do not make people
look for you.
11. Never presume anything that is not a specific policy. Ask questions.
12. Without exception, we will always reverence the NAME OF JESUS, HIS
BLOOD AND THE WORD OF GOD.
Do not leave God's ministry to guess work; Plan to attend training meetings.
