Call to Prayer
Greetings in Jesus,
Please note these two opportunities to apply prayer in your city and your congregation.
- Tomorrow (Thursday) morning Phil Miglioratti and I will host a call with Doug Small. Hear the vision that Doug has developed – along with Dave Butts from America’s National Prayer Committee, and Paul Cedar from Mission America Coalition. What would it be like to have a team of key prayer leaders in your city move together? Could a City-Wide Prayer team, people who care about specific areas of prayer, get to know each other’s lives and burdens and cooperate in prayer? Join us for this 40 minute call. Get this information to others you pray with regularly. Interact with people who are seeing this develop in their cities. Thursday, September 18. 11:00am Eastern – 8:00am Pacific. Call 7124320075 and, when prompted, enter 4067732#. Click here for more details.
Sunday, October 5th is an opportunity to fulfill a specific Biblical command and invitation. Thousands of pastors, including Jack Hayford and Paul Cedar encourage you to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (See Psalm 122:6) in a special way on that day. We encourage you to take a few minutes and check this out. See many endorsements and many great resources at www.daytopray.com.
I so appreciate your prayers over the summer as I have been writing a book on Biblical Mediation. (Wow! What a wonderful assignment!) The first draft is complete. Now the harder work begins. Please pray for God’s ongoing direction and timing for this project.
Please pray for me this weekend as I am in Everett, WA preaching and facilitating a congregational prayer time Sunday and Monday. There will also be a training component to this time as well. Please pray for great sensitivity on my part and prepared heart on their part.
Please pray for the Miami, FL summit which has been this week as well as a summit in Pune, India which will take place next week. Bill Berry will, in fact be in India for 5 weeks facilitating prayer summits. Please pray for ongoing health and spiritual vitality for him.
Please also check out and pray for several larger prayer initiatives. I will mention three. SEVEN, Seven days of prayer and fasting for our city
is taking place Sept 21-27 in and around Portland OR. 10 Days, Uniting Churches with Jesus at the Cente
r, is taking place September 24th
– October 4th in many cities across the nation. And David’s Tent DC
began 50 days of continuous worship and prayer in the Ellipse of the White House on Monday and will continue to November 4th
. Related to David’s Tent DC is David’s Tent Olympia
in Washington State. It also began last Monday and will continue for 10 days.
