Corporate Prayer; its Practice and Effectiveness in and for a Pentecostal Setting
Rev. Derrick and Ann Wilks Sabbatical 2018
Ann and I have been in ministry now for 15 years; we have been the ministers at Leigh on Sea for the last 10 years; and in the spring of 2018 we took an eight week Sabbatical to consider “Corporate Prayer; its practice and effectiveness in and for a Pentecostal setting”. Before we embarked on this quest our elder prayed and prophesied that we would have a blank Canvas to work with. This was apt as we all come to ventures with our own preconceived ideas. It is easy to make sweeping statements; we need to evidence our thoughts and ideas from Scripture and in practice. As an ex detective Derrick was trained to look at the evidence and not just the theory so he took these investigative skills into this project: Does what people say add up in practice? As we looked at a number of different streams we were searching for something that we could import into our own Pentecostal Church.
