Our strategy for prayer is found in Nehemiah 4:10. Nehemiah decided to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, and his first task was to “Tour the Wall” to see the areas that needed work. However, the people rebuilding the wall could not work effectively because they had to stop work to defend from invaders. The solution Nehemiah devised is what we call the Nehemiah “1:1 Ratio.” Every worker had a personal protector. When this plan was implemented, the wall was repaired in 52 days!
The concept for the LifeBridge Tyler Prayer Team Ministry is this same “1:1 Ratio.” There are lots of Dream Team members who are working to help others. To achieve the “1:1 Ratio,” a lot of Prayer Team members are required to protect them. We also continually “Tour the Wall” to see which areas require attention.

- 21 Days of Prayer - In January and August, we host a special, three-week emphasis on prayer and fasting. Prayer and fasting guides are published to create unity in prayer.
