Week of Prayer

Let's Seek God Together

As we begin 2018, it is important to set the tone for the new year. Each year, we come together and commit a week to seeking God through prayer and fasting. Our theme for this year is the Lord’s Prayer. Throughout the week, we will focus on some of the incredible attributes of God revealed through this prayer.

Our entire staff takes part in this Week of Prayer & Fasting. We shut down the “ministry engine,” closing the offices, turning off phones, pressing pause on the work, and generally saying “no” to everything else that demands our attention in order to fully seek God together. We invite you to join us in giving this week to God. Below are the ways for you to get involved and the focuses for each day. You can also download a copy of a guide for personal meditation and prayer.
