About the Prayer Toolkit

In 2021, prayer leaders from around the country convened in Nashville, TN to seek God's wisdom as a collective. From that meeting, one thing was abundantly clear: God is calling His people to pray like never before.

We know we should be intentionally seeking more prayer and more intimate prayer in all of our churches, but how do we do that in such a way that could motivate and bring about the spiritual awakening that our nation and world so desperately needs? Led by leaders like Ronnie Floyd, Claude King, Steve Gaines, Bill Elliff, Nathan Lorick, Rolland Slade, Sonny Tucker, Tommy Green, Chris Scofield, Daryl Price, Awakening America Alliance, and many others, the Pastor's Prayer Toolkit is aimed at helping pastors answer the questions that their people are asking.

10 Million Texts to Spark Prayer

How has God uniquely equipped this generation of Christians for this generation of ministry opportunities? While we have the same Gospel that our preceding brothers and sisters had, we also have something that they did not: technology. So, how might God use technology to bring about the next great prayer movement?

SMS Text Messaging has become the world's most effective form of communication. 98% of all text messages get opened compared to only 15% of emails. This is why Thryve is partnering with the SBC to put text messaging playbooks in the hands of church leaders. Thryve has put together a SMS Prayer Ministry Playbook that you can use to teach your people how to pray more effectively and allow them to text in their prayer needs. When you sign up you'll receive 5,000 text message credits to use to launch your Prayer Ministry.
