So you want to PROMOTE AND ENGAGE WITH ENOUGH?
The most effective way to promote ENOUGH and encourage people to attend is to be via your church's existing communication channels. To help with this we have produced some resources and materials to help you. We would love it if you would help us share information about ENOUGH and encourage your church to engage with it.
What could you do?
Here are a few ideas that would really help you to get traction as you promote ENOUGH in your church:
- Your website / Get ENOUGH up on your website and on your social media. use #prayersofmany #enough @RMchurches
- Our website / Point people to the ENOUGH webpage to discover how they can engage with the ENOUGH agenda.
- Videos / Use these videos during your weekly gatherings, on social media and any other network you have.
- Updates & prayer app / Make use of the updates using our mailing list and the ENOUGH Prayer App.
- Save the dates / Encourage your church to save the dates! Highlight these using the PowerPoint.
- Listen / For the heart behind ENOUGH, point people to Mike Betts's talk on the ‘Prayers of Many’
- Small groups / Think about initiatives/ideas you could run to act as stepping stones to the next event. For example, encouraging your small groups to focus on prayer in the weeks leading up to the event:
- Prayer meetings / Devote your usual prayer times to the build up of ENOUGH.
- Hub host / Ask your hub host to come and inspire your church.
- Reading / Direct people to the recommended reading list below.
Letting others encourage you is one of the best ways to catch a burning vision for prayer:

Mike Betts comments...
'This book got me into ENOUGH in the first place, taking me beyond my own idea to seeing that someone else had already done this, and the basis on which they had approached it, namely praying in the promises as yet unfulfilled.'
