Prayer groups are an important part of any church community, providing encouragement and support to those who need prayers and offering church members an opportunity to come together and practice their faith.
Around 30% of adults attend prayer groups at least a few times per year. Among those who pray daily, nearly 40% attend weekly prayer groups.
The most effective prayer groups have strong leadership, a tranquil location with minimal distractions, and a focused agenda.
Having an appealing and friendly name can also send the message that your group is well-organized and won’t be awkward or boring.

How to Create a Good Prayer Group Name
A prayer group name should be positive, hopeful, and welcoming.
You should also keep in mind that prayer groups often deal with serious problems within the church community, such as illness — so it’s usually not appropriate to choose a very lighthearted name.
The name doesn’t need to be somber, but it should be respectful to the challenges the community is facing.
As is true for general church group names, you can get inspiration from the text of the Bible, as well as worship music and general concepts of your religion.
You can also incorporate words that reflect the specific purpose of the group. For example, if it is a women’s prayer group, you can include something in the group name to indicate that it is open to women in your church.
