The fifth Alpha talk is all about prayer. This topic is introduced gradually to guests through several intentional moments. That’s why we don’t say an opening prayer on the first Alpha night which could make guests feel uncomfortable. Here are some links to resources that will help equip Alpha leaders and teams:
