Over the years we have hovered around 22-25 states never feeling rushed to grow or to possibly outgrow our infrastructure. That all changed for us earlier this year when we received the leading from several intercessory groups to pursue leadership in all 50 states. In just the past few months we have moved up to 38 states. We need your help to fill the rest. Below is a list of the needed states and what follows is the position description and closing thoughts.

State Prayer Leader - Governors’ Prayer Team:
Leaders hold weekly one hour statewide prayer conference calls and also participate in a one hour national prayer call weekly. Our National calls are typically attended by veteran intercessors and prayer leaders from the prayer ministries that we come in contact with throughout the nation. Calls range from 8 to 40 participants. The State Prayer Leader is encouraged to invite guest Prayer Leaders from the various prayer ministries across their state to participate in their statewide prayer calls (Every joint has something to supply). Each guest Prayer Leader is encouraged to invite those from their networks to participate in the call as well. This offers the cross pollination of prayer focuses and resources.
State Prayer Leaders are also encouraged to raise up county Prayer leaders ultimately for each county seat (or Borough & Parish) in their state (yes we understand this could take sometime and might not be completed during your term and that's OK. We have been slowly building up to 29 states since 2004). County Prayer Leaders are encouraged to raise up City and Town Prayer leaders and so on. Each holds conference calls or small groups of prayer lifting up all those in authority.
We are also very supportive of special projects and programs developed by our state leaders. That would include things like prayer gatherings or prayer walks in or around state capitals or county courthouses. Another example is sponsored bible studies led by State Prayer Leaders, recruited pastors or laypeople taking place in business or government offices. We have also been involved in the reestablishment of chapels and places of worship in our state capitals and county court
This is about an 8 - 10 hour a week commitment for those not already involved in prayer mobilization or leading others to pray. Two of those hours are spent on prayer calls and the rest is time used networking with the body, preparing for a special outreach or prayer focus like the ones I mentioned above.
This is more than just a simple appeal for volunteer leadership. When those who God has placed the mantle on their heart to begin to lead in intercession in their state and they lift their hand and say "yes Father pick me. I am the one". No matter if it's two or three gathered under this mantle or thousands these prayers are set to "availeth much". That's when we begin to realize the collective strength in the blessings of the intercessors who being guided by the Holy Spirit deliver their supplications to our heavenly Father via Christ the one mediator between God and man.
This is when the blessing of 1 Timothy 2:1-7 becomes reality in the neighborhoods and towns across America and is collaterally realized across the globe.
