And the Place Was Shaken: How to Lead a Powerful Prayer Meeting
B&H Publishing Group, 2005 - 208 pages

And for the church, corporate prayer is not an optional ritual but a commanded expectation. However, having an effective corporate experience of prayer-whether in a large congregational setting or a small group-depends on many factors. John Franklin highlights not only the theology behind powerful corporate prayer times but also the effective habits and practices of a praying church. Know why God especially requires corporate prayer.
