Using IBIP for Church Prayer

Raising prayer support is probably the most important task of churches. IBIP can be used to help churches and church ministries to distribute prayer points and updates online.

This is a free service for churches.

1. Register a ministry account

The first step is to register your church for a free ministry IBIP prayer account. Create an account username (which is needed for logins), your church name (display name), an email address, and password. We recommend that you load your mission profile logo (or photo) as well. Once you have logged in, we recommend the following approach:

2. Create Prayer Tags

Our recommendation is that you create prayer tags for each church staff member, ministry, committee and project that you regularly have prayer points for.
Why do this? To help supporters know more about what they are prayer for. For example - Say you regularly have prayer points for the youth group ministry. If you create a tag with details about the group, then anyone who prays for youth ministry can easily find out more about it. eg- where the group meets, the leaders, the purpose of the group, where the kids come from, approx numbers, etc.

6. Set up a Prayer Request Line

A request line can be set up for church members to submit their prayers.

The prayer request line can be set up for a church service or event, and/or as a periodic opportunity.
