24 Hour Prayer Vigil

Click on the Prayer Vigil Sign-up Button Above to Participate

Here are some suggestions on how you may like to spend your allotted hour with
God. Feel free to follow these guidelines or to pray as you feel lead by the Holy Spirit.

Why are we having a 24-Hour Prayer Vigil?

 As a church community, we are seeking to deepen our relationship with God
 In light of the pandemic, we want to re-discover God’s future direction for our church
 We desire for our will to be in alignment with God’s will
 We want to see God’s power at work among us in response to our prayers

What do you pray for?
 Begin with a time of confession so that nothing hinders your ability to hear God
 Pray for God to reveal His future plans for our church
 Pray for God to provide the resources needed to fulfill His vision for us
 Pray for the courage to embrace any new ministries He has in mind for us
 Pray for our willingness to let go of any ministries no longer serving God’s purpose
 Pray that God will use us to reach those who need to experience His love and
salvation in their lives

Your Prayer Vigil could include:
 Reading the Bible
 Singing or listening to songs of praise and worship
 Journaling
 Meditating/ quiet listening
 Reflecting on the qualities of God
 Asking God to reveal His heart to you
 Asking God to reveal your part in His plan

Prayer is a two-way conversation and as you commune with Jesus, He will
commune with you, particularly through Scripture. Take time to listen to what you
believe God may be saying to you and perhaps jot down your thoughts. Feel free
to share with Iris or Norelle any ideas, Bible readings, thoughts or stories that
may come to mind during your hour of prayer. In this way, we may be able to
identify some themes of what God is saying to us corporately.

Thank you for your participation in this exciting and vital event.
