Corporate prayer is prayer offered to God by an assembly or body of multiple Christians speaking to God as a group with one voice or request. ("Corporate prayer" derives from the Latin word "corpus", meaning "body". It comes from the same Latin root as the words "corporate" or "corporation" when used with respect to a business enterprise, but it has a separate meaning.)

Examples of corporate prayer in the Bible include the prayers that the church offered as a group in the face of persecution (Acts 4:23-31), and for Peter's release after his arrest (Acts 12:5).
