In the last few months, our world has changed in dramatic ways. As a result, the ministry of Come before Winter is in the process of revisioning what it means to renew, equip, honor, and unite men and women in ministry around the world during this time. We are making plans to offer unique, online opportunities for study, prayer, worship, and reflection.


What is a prayer appointment? Prayer appointments are one-on-one prayerful conversations with a Come before Winter team member. These prayer appointments are a foundational component and spiritual discipline of the ministry and if you have attended a renewal, you know how life-giving this time can be.


Prayer requests will be paired with CbW partners who understand the process and are able to offer support in this way.  The appointments will last between 30-45 minutes and will be conducted online. Partners will determine together about how and when to connect after the assignment is made (FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.).


The prayer appointment is not a counseling session, and CbW prayer partners are not licensed to practice therapy. The contents of the prayerful conversation will remain confidential between you and the prayer partner.


Any disclosure of an intent to harm yourself or someone else, or any report of an incident of abuse will require your prayer partner to consult with ministry leaders to determine what steps are appropriate to protect those involved both physically and legally.


How will I be matched with a prayer partner?

Female ministry leaders will be matched with female prayer partners; male ministry leaders will be matched with male prayer partners. Otherwise, appointments will be assigned based on the availability of prayer partners.


How will I know when my appointment will be?

Once you request a prayer appointment, you will receive an email from your prayer partner and the two of you will decide the best format for your appointment. We suggest Zoom, WhatsApp video, FaceTime, or some other type of video chat.


How can I request multiple prayer appointments?

If you wish to attend an additional prayer appointment, you will need to submit an additional request. Please note it is unlikely that you will be paired with the same prayer partner each time.


What is the format of the prayer appointment?

Your prayer partner will introduce him/herself and engage with you around your ministry.

The revelation, the insights are priceless, and I'm so thankful to God He has provided this mission. So thankful to the team for doing such a great job in serving and being the voice, hands and heart of our Lord for us.
