Alpha is a spiritual battle. Our prayer teams will pray for guests at Alpha, as well as those serving at Alpha. You can join one team, or you can join them all.
The Alpha prayer period will be through the 13 weeks of Alpha from April 13th, 2021 - July 6th, 2021.
You can register for Alpha Prayer even after the start date, so if you reach this page late, please don't let that deter you from signing up!
Alpha Prayer Teams
1. The Evening Prayer Team
Commit to pray some time between 7p.m. - 12a.m., Monday - Sunday for the duration of the Alpha prayer period. We pray attendees will be led into reflection and contemplation as God pursues their hearts.
How it works
As part of this team you will pray on your own. You choose the day(s) and time(s) in the evening during the week that work best for you, and you pray through the list at each of those day(s) and time(s). You will receive a new prayer list in your email each Friday (organized by the Lord's prayer).
Why is there an Evening Prayer Team?
We are prone to push God into the margins of our day (mornings, mealtimes, bedtime) — but being part of the Evening Prayer Team is about regularly setting aside time in your evenings to do spiritual battle for Alpha attendees. Contend for the God who pursues us to providentially draw the Alpha attendees to himself in the evenings.
2. The Intercessory Prayer Team
Engage in the real time spiritual battle for the entire prayer period from 7p.m. - 9p.m. (choose a one hour time slot or join for both). Intercede against the ongoing tactics of the enemy utilizing worship, scripture and spiritual gifts. Prayer is the place where we fight against the idols, addictions, strongholds and the forces of darkness themselves that are keeping others, and ourselves, from freedom in Christ.
How it works
As part of this team, you are committing to prayer on Zoom on Tuesday Nights during the Alpha Prayer Period. Pick a one hour time slot, or commit to both
3. The Corporate Prayer Team
Pray through the weekly prayer list (both Alpha Prayer and Corporate Prayer requests) each Wednesday for the duration of the Alpha Prayer Period. You can do this on your own or join our Weekly Online Prayer meetings HERE.
How it works
You must be a member of Westside (you submitted a membership application and have been confirmed by an Elder) in order to join this team.
