Why should I join an A Praying Life Cohort for Special Needs Parents?

Do you long to connect with God in prayer but struggle due to life’s challenges of taking care of special needs children/adults? We have a lot of extra things we’re trying to juggle in our lives, and often don't have time to pray consistently. Come join us and learn to pray in community through this 10-week prayer cohort.

What is an online cohort?

In this highly personalized, 10-week prayer training, you'll gather with an experienced prayer trainer and a small group of others on Zoom. Together, you'll build a set of 5 or more personal prayer cards that you’ll use to pray through key areas in your lives. Each week, you will experience the accountability and encouragement of praying together. As you see God at work in one another’s lives, you will grow in wisdom and faith.

When would we meet?

Wednesdays, 10:30-11:45 AM ET | September 7-November 9

What happens in a cohort meeting?

We learn to pray and track prayer stories, and we pray. Through a book study and open discussions, we apply new ideas in our personal prayer lives. Then we pray and begin to watch, together, what God does in each prayer story.

What is a prayer story?

From the proven training of the book A Praying Life by Paul Miller, prayer stories are more than simply an answer to prayer to check off a list. Prayer stories emphasize that God is at work in the larger picture of our lives and of redemption. As we pray to gather and see God at work in the lives of others, you will be encouraged to keep asking—even when you don’t yet see movement in your own prayer story.

There is a $75.00 fee for cohort participation per person. Scholarships are available - please let us know if money is an issue!

Participants are required to have the 2017 edition of A Praying Life, which can be purchased here.
