What is Triplet Prayer?

A Prayer Triplet is a team of three Christians committed to praying together regularly for friends who need to meet Jesus. You and your team agree to meet for 20 minutes on a weekly basis to pray for three friends each who need Jesus (nine friends total). Begin with a three-month commitment to pray together, and after that, renew the commitment.

How does it work?


Find two friends that will commit to join you to pray for friends who need Jesus. Jesus made some specific promises to pairs and trios who pray. Matthew 18:19-20.

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:1


Each of you should write down the names of three friends with whom you want to share Jesus, and two friends with whom you can pray.


Now that you and your friends have committed to Triplet Prayer, decide on a day, a time and a place to meet. We suggest setting aside 30 minutes so that you will have 20 min to pray.


Use the following guide to assist you during your Triplet Prayer time. After focusing on the center point, which is the worship of God, prayer then flows naturally to the other three areas, so begin with worship. The Triplet Prayer Guide emphasis these three specific sections:

      • Spiritual Renewal for Yourself and Your Church  The goal is to pray that your group will know Jesus better and become more like Him. This is when the needs within your group can be covered in prayer. Your focus then should switch to the renewal of the Body of Christ in your city and your nation. -Worship-

      • Salvation of Your Friends  Each member should pray for three non-Christian friends. This means that the team will be praying, by name, for the salvation of nine people. Remember what you learned about praying for people who don’t know Jesus. Begin by asking God to intervene in the lives of your friends, reconciling them to Himself. Then boldly declare that no weapon of Satan’s will prosper—the weapon of speculations, the weapon of high things, and the weapon of thoughts. Bind his plans and stand against them in the Name of Jesus. Pray also that your friends be shielded from Satan’s thoughts and temptations. -Worship-

      • Pray for the World The group should pray for the worldwide work of God through His Church. The team should choose three countries of the world in which to focus their prayers. The more you know about these countries, the more clearly you can pray. -Worship-
