I have found that churches throughout America have started to host more prayer groups, so I thought that it would be beneficial to share a list with some of the best prayer groups that I’ve found.
Here is a list of the top Christian Prayer groups in the country and online:
- Intercessors for America
- Meetup Prayer Groups
- Pray for Our Nation
- Watchmen on the Wall
- Online Christian Fellowship
- God Answers Prayers
- Prayer Request Group
- Christian Women’s Prayer and Praise Group
- Mighty Men of Prayer
- 24-7 Prayer
From what I found, there are many online prayer groups or pages. I also found that most in person prayer groups will be hosted by local churches. In order to find these I would encourage you to look up online prayer groups near you or ask your local church. The groups I have listed are the most popular throughout the nation.
Online Prayer Groups
There are many online prayer groups. I have found the ones with the most activity and popularity.
Intercessors for America
Intercessors for America is a website that can link you to many different prayer groups. This website can also connect you to community transformation sites. These are things more specific to your area. It is simple to find a site near your location, then get connected with other believers.
This site also gives many options for online prayer groups, I will share about the top two most popular from their page; Pray for Our Nation and Watchmen on the Wall.
Pray for Our Nation
This online prayer group includes over 1,000 members. It is a prayer group specific to praying for our nation. The way it is set up is for every member to be able to share prayer points to unify the group to pray for specifics in the nation.
There are also shared documents that the group can all access. These resources can provide knowledge about the topics going on in our nation in order to best pray for specific things.
Watchmen on the Wall
This prayer group is the second most popular on the Intercessors for America website. It is specifically an online prayer group for standing in the gap for the nation, among other things.
24/7 Non-denominational prayer group that is committed to standing in the gap for our nation, communities, families, children, Israel and the world.Watchmen on the Wall
Just like the other online prayer groups from Intercessors for America, there are many people in this group. Every person who decides to join one of these groups needs to create an account and log in, in order to add to the group.
Mighty Men of Prayer
There are many groups for both male and female. This group is specific for men, to encourage and equip them to be prayerful.
The Mighty Men of Prayer Ministry is a prayer ministry of men who are praying for men to take our place in prayer, spiritual leadership, and in Christian ministry generally, as God intends, the Bible expresses, and the Holy Spirit directs. It is primarily a prayer ministry, that is, a time set aside to pray.Mighty Men of Prayer
I thought this group was interesting because it includes a commitment time. This is seemingly one hour out of the 744 hours in the month.
24-7 Prayer is an organization that hosts over 160 prayer rooms throughout the nation and Europe. Their website includes information about each 24-7 prayer group as well as online prayer requests.
I found this one interesting because you can incorporate their organization and the idea of 24-7 prayer into your home small group. They include ways to connect them to your home community. This is what they call a 24-7 community, which could be a prayer group for you!
Facebook groups can be found for all different walks of life and fellowships. These groups are some of the most popular online right now. You may be able to find smaller, more intimate groups with those close to your location.
Online Christian Fellowship
This is a large Facebook group that includes over 100,000 members. A warning that I would say is that if you sign up for this one, be prepared for a lot of notifications.
The page is created for people to post prayer requests. Some people have started Live prayer times, or posted videos for others to watch about the prayer topics. You never know, you may find some good Christian memes!
God Answers Prayers
God Answers Prayers is another Facebook prayer group. This one has over 1 million members! The admins have listed their vision for this Christian fellowship and prayer group.
Christian fellowship group, we give praise to the Lord we lift up His wonderful name, We give God all the Glory.God Answers Prayers Description
I found that pages of this great size are not as personal as if you were in a personal small group or smaller online prayer group. If you are looking for snippets throughout the day to pray for, I imagine this page or other Facebook pages would be good for you to join.
Prayer Request Group
This Facebook group was started in 2011 by a pastor in London and now has over 300,00 members. This page is great because there is a limit per person daily, this will help with the amount of notifications you may receive.
Like most online prayer groups this is a place to post and pray for other’s prayer request posts. This page specifically gives a connection to a pastor in London. If you are living in the States, I would suggest calling a local pastor for pastoral care. But it is nice to have that contact available on the Facebook group.
Christian Women’s Prayer and Praise Group
This group is dedicated to just women. It is designed for a place that women can ask and receive prayer. Due to it only being women, it is a bit smaller than other Facebook groups with only 15,000 members.
Like the other groups it is a private page that you have to ask to be a part of. This process is simple and should allow you in the group within days. According to the description, the page is made with the hopes that each woman would be restored and that there would be an increase in their faith.
In Person Prayer Groups
Over all, in person prayer groups are hard to come by at a national level. In my research, I found two consistent things. The first is that being that local prayer groups are popular and available, you just need to connect with the local church. And the second one I found is that there are very good online ways to connect with a local prayer group!
Meetup Prayer Groups
Meetup is the way you can find a prayer group online to connect with in person. I found that this program is helpful to find not only prayer groups but other Christian communities near you.
There are many different types of prayer groups for different religions or topics that you can filter in or out on their website. If you are interested in finding a local Christian prayer group through Meetup, click here.
No matter what prayer group you choose to be a part of there is always community out there, you may just need to dig a little. I would encourage you to not be discouraged, rather be encouraged that there is so many options and ways to find community and prayer groups today!
