Imagine what God can do with a church totally dependent upon him! Your church can be that church. It can become a prayer-saturated church!

More and more churches are recognizing the importance of prayer for life and power in the church. But making prayer more foundational is a challenging task for pastors and prayer leaders. The Prayer-Saturated Church provides all the step-by-step, practical help any pastor or prayer leader needs to mobilize, organize, and motivate believers to make their church a house of prayer.

Written by a veteran prayer leader with years of hands-on experience in local church prayer, The Prayer-Saturated Church will enable any church—no matter the size—to take prayer to the next level and saturate its ministry in prayer!

Praise for the Print Edition

I know of nothing that even remotely compares to The Prayer-Saturated Church. It is rare indeed when something so practical is communicated with such passion and depth. Simply stated, it is the most thorough and well-written book I have seen on how to establish a prayer ministry in your local church. Apply its wisdom and you will succeed in this all-important endeavor.

Dutch Sheets, executive director, Christ for the Nations Institute

What a help for local church prayer leaders! I was so taken by the content that I ended up tearing out pages and teaching them instead of my material. The local church now has a new and fresh construction manual for the House of Prayer.

—Terry Teykl, founder, Renewal Ministries

Thank God for Cheryl Sacks! The Prayer-Saturated Church is a must for anyone involved in prayer ministry. It gives practical, balanced revelation on how not to get distracted so you remain focused for breakthrough praying in your church. Cheryl not only has lived and led prayer but has now written and explained how the prayer ministry evolves and matures.

Chuck D. Pierce, president, Global Spheres, Inc.

The Prayer-Saturated Church is a major missing link between the church and the transformation of congregations, cities, and nations. It is practical yet deeply personal and warm. It gives us keys to the release of revival and a great harvest of souls.

Cindy Jacobs, founder, Generals of Intercession

The dynamic prayer movement that God has been activating throughout America has now reached a new level. The Prayer-Saturated Church not only will help you understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches concerning prayer, but it will also motivate you to jump into the stream and move forward in the divine flow. I congratulate Cheryl Sacks for this strategic and exciting book!

C. Peter Wagner, president, Global Harvest Ministries

When Cheryl Sacks speaks about prayer, people listen! She is a gifted communicator, and she is also uniquely anointed to call people and churches to a deeper, higher level of intercession. So this book isn’t just full of good prayer ideas; it will ignite your spirit! Cheryl has been especially called by God to impart her passion to church leaders. I’ve felt it! I’ve seen the results! I’m Cheryl’s pastor.

Gary D. Kinnaman, senior minister, Word of Grace, Mesa, AZ

Cheryl Sacks has produced a resource that both pastors and prayer leaders have been waiting for years to put their hands on. She covers the A to Z’s of birthing and building prayer into the ministry and mission of the local church. This handbook is essential for every prayer ministry I have ever known.

—Phil Miglioratti, COO and national coordinator, Loving Our Communities to Christ

This book is one that is incredibly comprehensive yet thoroughly practical. Cheryl not only covers the ‘how’ of prayer ministry but also the ‘why.’ For anyone interested in building or improving their church as a house of prayer, The Prayer-Saturated Church is a must-read.

—Gregory Frizzell, prayer and spiritual awakening specialist, Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
