The discipline of prayer is to pray daily for the spread of Christ’s kingdom, especially among men and youth, and for God’s blessings upon the labors of the Brotherhood.
Prayer is a vital part of any Brotherhood meeting, and one of the three basic rules. Here are some suggestions as to how to incorporate prayer into the Chapter meetings. The Chapter Director should open, and close each Chapter meeting, leading the brothers in prayer using the prayers from the Brotherhood Devotional handbook, pages 3, and 5 respectively.
In addition, each chapter should have a prayer list dedicated to the prayer needs of members, and their families and friends. One brother should be assigned to keep the prayer list updated on a continual basis, for the prayer needs articulated during the portion of the chapter meeting dedicated to prayer.
The prayer list should be distributed to brothers in printed form at each meeting, or electronically by e mail after the meeting, or a combination of both. It is suggested that the prayer list be divided into categories such as: guidance, healing, surgery, thanksgiving, and recruiting new members.
The prayer list is to be kept confidential within the chapter.
