Praying Together is Coming Soon (and We Are Giving One Away!) [UPDATED]


With thanksgiving to God, we are delighted to announce that Praying Together—Megan’s new book—will be released later this month by Crossway Publishers. 

Keep reading to learn more about Praying Together and how you can order (or be given!) a copy. 

From the Back Cover 

A Christian never prays alone. Heard by the Father and helped by the Son and Spirit, and joined with the prayers of others, a believer’s prayer always expresses a relationship. It is fitting, then, that God designed the church to be a community of believers who regularly pray together. And yet we often fail to prioritize these times in our daily lives. 

Exploring the Bible’s teaching on corporate prayer and the rich blessings that result, Praying Together will help you delight in the privilege of prayer and give you the practical tools to make praying with others a regular practice in your home, your church, and your community.

  1. I pray every Monday afternoon with a small group of women from church. It is a very transparent group in which we pray for each other's struggles and praise God for answered prayer. We encourage each other according to scripture, and we have grown together through the experience.

  10. I'm looking forward to reading your book, Megan! I feel that many Christians (including myself) miss out on this great privilege and are weak because of it. I pray with my husband and a friend. Gail Slawson (Cristy's mother-in-law)

  16. I have been praying with my prayer partners once a month for about 6 months now. We have seen amazing answers to prayer and have learned to wait on God in a powerful way.

  17. I have prayed with prayer partners in the past, the latest one being my sister, which was such a blessing in each of our lives. I also pray with my family, my husband, other women, and most of my life, with my church. The 24-hour prayer vigils the church has had in the past twice a year truly have been rich and moving in my life as God has used that time to teach me more about prayer as I prayed with another person and sang hymns before our mighty God together! These are times I cherish in my heart and will never forget, spent in the presence of God! Megan, I can hardly wait to read your book. You are so gifted and God has used you and your words to encourage and challenge me in many ways. I thank God for you! ~Lynne Patterson

  19. I treasure our time in prayer during family worship with my parents. It is such a sweet time to thank God for His many blessings and lift up requests for dear family members, friends, and the church all over the world. I look forward to reading the book!
