[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]At NOLA Church, we believe fervent, heart-felt prayer is key to leading people to Jesus and essential to what we do as a faith-community. We believe we would not have seen lives changed or experienced supernatural growth without the ministry of prayer.
Our strategy for prayer is found in Nehemiah 4:10. Nehemiah decided to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, and his first task was to tour the wall to see the areas that needed work. However, the people rebuilding the wall could not work effectively because they had to stop work to defend from invaders. The solution Nehemiah devised is what we call the Nehemiah 1:1 Ratio. Every worker had a personal protector. When this plan was implemented, the wall was repaired in 52 days!
The concept for the Prayer Team is this same 1:1 Ratio. There are many SERVE Team members who are working to help others. To achieve the 1:1 Ratio, many Prayer Team members are required to protect them. We also continually tour the wall to see which areas require attention.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_accordion collapsible=”yes” disable_keyboard=”” active_tab=”false”][vc_accordion_tab title=”JOIN THE TEAM”][vc_column_text]
