Dee Goodban came to appreciate the purpose of Spiritual gifts when God led her into an understanding of what it means to have the gift of Intercessory Prayer. That understanding led her to form Prayer Alliance in 2010 in partnership with Harvest Alliance International.
Prayer Alliance is an Intercessory Prayer Ministry whose participants support missionaries around the world, not only through daily prayer but also by forming personal relationships as brothers and sisters in Christ. PA has joined together with ministries having similar interests and promotes intercessory prayer in the Christian community.
Prayer Alliance members are dedicated to seeking God’s will through intercessory prayer so God’s power will wash over the lives of missionaries who are devoted to enhancing the Kingdom of God.
As Dee has explained: the vision for Prayer Alliance is found in Exodus 17.
"The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. Moses said to Joshua, 'Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.'
So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
Moses built an altar at this place and called it The LORD is my Banner."
The desire of Prayer Alliance is to come alongside and hold up the LORD’S banner over His missionaries and encourage each to continue in their part of the battle.
We believe God inhabits the prayer and praise of His people (Psalm 22:3) and intercessory prayer is the most powerful tool to help undergird and lift up those in the forefront of the battle.
The mission of Prayer Alliance is "To Spread the Word of God and the Love of Jesus throughout the world by praying for those on the front lines and through intercessory prayer."
Dee also leads the prayer team on her church campus and a monthly prayer group who pray for the global church.
