Why Pray the Apostolic Prayers? These Biblical prayers are...

  1. God-centered
  2. God pre-approved prayers - We know they will be answered
  3. Positive prayers - they pray for the positive, not against something or for the removing of the negative
  4. Focused prayers - they lead to corporate prayer focus & unity
  5. Meant for the Church (or believers) - they are prayers for God to strengthen the inner man of believers and ground them in the character and ways of God
  6. Spirit-inspired models of how to pray - These are prayers prayed by the Jesus and the apostles over His Church

Pray these prayers over yourself, over specific brothers and sisters in the Lord, and over His Church
