The ministries of the Christian Reformed Church in North America have several resources to help individuals and congregations in their cultivation of prayer and spiritual disciplines. Most of these can be found at

These resources include: 

“There have been some encouraging things happening when it comes to intentionally incorporating prayer into the lives of our congregations, classes, and denominations,” denominational prayer shepherd Rev. Jon Hoekema said, including the concentrated effort to surround Synod 2022 with prayer. Volunteers will be recruited to pray for Synod 2023 too.

Local and regional prayer initiatives are also happening. Classis Southeast U.S. had a day of prayer before its fall meeting, Hoekema said, and Classis Zeeland has a weekly pastors' prayer gathering. 

Hoekema holds a prayer time via video conference on the second Wednesday of every month. Those wishing to participate should email for more information. Hoekema also encourages people to visit to subscribe to daily, weekly, or monthly prayer requests.
