Discipleship 101 - part 5

Be part of a regular prayer group (weekly or fortnightly)

Prayer gatherings, or in older terminology, prayer meetings, are a vital part of discipleship growth. Look for a prayer group that listens to God, is open to the Spirit of God, and expresses praise and worship. It may have a specific focus, but try and avoid long lists of items to pray for. Let the structure be a tool, not the master. The Primitive Methodist prayer meetings were filled with people who were zealous, passionate, faith-filled believers.

See here and here for more examples.
