Alpha is a spiritual battle. There are three teams (described below) you can join to be part of the battle for Fall Alpha 2020. All of our teams 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 7 weeks of Alpha from October 20th, 2020 - December 1st, 2020.
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
Fill the evening hours from 5p.m. - 12a.m., Monday - Sunday with prayer for the duration of the Alpha prayer period.
How it works
This team doesn't need to physically meet to pray. You can choose the day(s) and time(s) in the evenings that work best for you, even if that is just 10 minutes that you have to spare in your chosen time slot(s). Each week this team will be given a list of items to pray over in their time slot, framed by the Lord's prayer in Matthew 6:9-13.
Why is there an Evening Prayer Team?
We're often prone to put God in the margins of our day (mornings, mealtimes, bedtime) and give our days to work or errands or a myriad of other things—but being part of the Evening Prayer Team is about making a commitment to regularly set aside time in your evening to do spiritual battle for people. This team puts up a covering of prayer for our guests and those serving at Alpha to experience freedom in their evenings, with faith the Lord is doing His good work.
2. The Intercessory Prayer Team
Intercede against the ongoing tactics of the enemy. Engage in the real time spiritual battle on all Alpha nights, 7p.m. - 9p.m.. Prayer is the place where we fight against the idols, addictions, strongholds and forces of darkness that are keeping others, and ourselves, from freedom in Christ. Intercede on behalf of those attending Alpha and serving at Alpha.
How it works
As part of this team, you are committing to prayer at Westside on Tuesday Nights during the Alpha Course. The start and end times can be flexible, but attendance at all the Alpha nights is requested.
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.
How it works
You can pray through the prayer list we send out digitally either on the Wednesday morning zoom call at 7a.m., or on your own time. You are also agreeing to pray for any urgent prayers you are sent.
