Prayer Connect Writer's Guidelines
The mission of Prayer Connect is:
- To encourage and equip believers toward a deeper walk with Jesus Christ through prayer—our experiential connection to God.
- To resource prayer leaders and pastors with tools to help them motivate, disciple, and mobilize believers in churches to be part of an army that seeks to pray the purposes of God for churches, communities, and the nations.
- To be a unifying force between prayer ministries, community transformation groups, and churches.
Prayer Connect is sponsored by America’s National Prayer Committee, the Denominational Prayer Leaders Network, and International Prayer Council.
Prayer Connect is published by Church Prayer Leaders Network, Harvest Prayer Ministries, and PrayerShop Publishing.

Freelance Writing Opportunities
Theme-related Feature Articles:
Feature articles are normally assigned to writers with expertise related to the theme of the issue (1,500 to 2,000 words). But freelance writers are welcome to submit articles in advance based on projected themes for 2012 (subject to change). It should be noted that it is a long-shot to have a theme article selected since we normally assign them to writers who we know have something to say on the topic.. We also operate about five to six months ahead of an issue. Please query first to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non Theme-related Articles:
At least two articles per issue will feature a variety of topics on prayer, not necessarily tied to the theme (1,200 to 1,500 words). Freelance writers are encouraged to submit articles that have not appeared in any other publication (print or electronic). Topics should relate to the mission of PRAYER Connect. Articles should include personal illustrations and Scriptural basis. Please include paragraph with writer’s biographical information. (No queries on non-theme articles, please.)
These articles should be submitted electronically to email@example.com or mailed with an SASE to Prayer Connect submissions, 4300 West 98th Street, Bloomington, MN 55437.
Tips & Tools:
These are short articles designed to stimulate prayer in individuals or ideas for prayer leaders (250 to 500 words). Prayer resources, ideas to lead prayer in your church, or helpful websites will be considered. Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No queries, please.
News and Events:
These are short articles about God’s movement in the nation and the world through prayer (250 to 700 words). News items should encourage the reader about how the prayer movement is expanding through prayer gatherings, revival movements, or special events. Articles should include quotes from prayer leaders or others involved in the news event.
Please query first to email@example.com.
Payment will vary based on type of article. Typically, a non-themed article will be ten cents per word after editing. Upon acceptance, a contract will be sent to the author. Payment will be made upon signing of the contract.
