A triplet is three friends who meet to help each other to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Each triplet is shaped by those in the group, they could be three young mums who meet fortnightly for a coffee or three men who meet on the train into London once a week. With only three people involved it can be as flexible as needed.
The triplet is a place for high levels of accountability, honesty and openness. They need to be marked with real love for one another and a desire to grow spiritually. It is a place to take something reflected upon, e.g. personal bible readings, sermon or issues people are currently facing and then move it into action through challenge and prayer.
Pointers for starting a prayer triplet:
- It is important the you are comfortable with others in the group. The more open and honest you can be with them, the greater the accountability will be. These will normally be people with whom you are already friends
- Try to find a regular time and venue to meet that works for you all
- Define boundaries early on, levels of accountability and confidentiality and how often you meet etc.
- Ask each other simple but direct questions, for example – What is God saying to you at the moment? How are you acting on that? John Wesley’s accountability questions are a fantastic place to start
- Make sure you spend time praying for one another – this is what it is all about.
