These are the spiritual disciplines that are activities for the body of believers. These disciplines are best practiced in the context of a local church body to which one is a member, but can occasionally include gatherings of multiple congregations for a special celebration.
Although prayer is considered an individual spiritual discipline, a body of believers without a corporate prayer life is a powerless body. Most of what applies to the personal discipline of prayer applies to the corporate discipline. I consider it essential to mention the discipline again as a corporate activity, as it is so often forgotten or given little priority in the corporate life of the church. Spirit-led Prayer, especially as a corporate activity in conjunction with confession, is essential for genuine revival.
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16). Although I believe that sins should be confessed on the level that they are committed, there is definitely a place for corporate confession of sin. When we genuinely confess to a group, it takes great humility. Also, public confession supplies a source of accountability. I also will add that corporate and public confession of sin, in conjunction with Spirit-led prayer, is a gateway to genuine revival.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.Hebrews 10:24-25
