The prayer groups of the Charismatic Renewal

The Charismatic Renewal is a current of grace in the Church and for the Church.

Prayer groups have an essential place in it.

A prayer group can be born from the desire of some people or from the intuition of a single person.  Some of these groups have been already existing for decades. They may consist of hundreds of people or just a few.

Prayer groups are often the gateway for many people in need of encountering God. Many of them come with hurts and limitations. People who come to one of these groups quickly experience an atmosphere of fraternity where they can confidently express their prayer spontaneously to God.

The prayer groups carry the grace of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit which irrigates the Body of Christ as a vascular termination irrigates a limb, an arm, a finger. 

Present in the largest parishes and also in the humblest ones, prayer groups are the main actors of the great mission of CHARIS: “To share with everyone in the Church the grace of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit”.

It is often in the prayer group that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is received.

It is a place where the little ones and the poor have an equal place.

It is where Christians of all denominations can feel good together. It is a group of brothers and sisters who do not hesitate to pray for one another.

They are Christians who are connected to their bishop and trust him.

Each prayer group has as a natural point of reference the CHARIS National Service of Communion of their country, which in some countries already exists and in others is being created.
