NIGHT IN PRAYER
What if God were to call on women to gather together to pray for their family, their friends, the people in their lives and community? What if God were to call an army of women to engage in intense, purposeful prayer?
What if hundreds of women answered that call and came together all at once to pray in one massive all-at-the-same-time gathering?
What if every daughter, son, husband, friend, neighbor and work associate of every one of those hundreds of women got saturated in prayer?
What if we prayed all night?
What would happen?
Several years ago a group of ordinary women set out to find out what would happen if we had enough faith and determination to venture out of our comfortable beds and pray all night for the people in our own circles of influence.
We were excited, a little nervous, and filled with the hope that God would show Himself to us in tangible, powerful ways that we could understand.
And He did!
Since that first Night in Prayer, seven years ago, the number of women who come, pajama clad with pillows and goodies and hearts full of faith, has snowballed.
Women want to come! They bring burdens too great to bear alone: people they love who need Jesus, messy relationships they cannot fix, co-workers who are cold to the Gospel, teenagers taking terrible risks, and a great burden to see hearts rescued by the Redeemer.
We have seen those impossible prayers answered. Really! We have seen our own minds and attitudes and thinking changed dramatically. We have seen healings of bodies and perhaps even more miraculous, healings of relationships.
More than anything, we have experienced Jesus in a way we never understood possible.
This year would you join us?
We are inviting women from all around the state, the country, and the world to spend the night of February 24th- 25th in prayer.
Rather than all try to cram into one building and do things exactly the way we do, we are asking you to consider gathering women in your church or ministry to pray at the same time as we do. We’ll link together via video at some point in the night to cheer each other on and be amazed at God’s movement.
And if you’re a part of Solid Rock, we’ll be gathering both on the Westside and Downtown this year. I’ll be leading on the Westside and Tammy and her team will guide you Downtown. If you plan on being a part of the Sunset campus church, join us on the Westside in especially set aside groups.
Together we will sing:
I love the LORD because He hears and answers
Because He bends down and listens,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
Will you join us?
Filled with His hope,
P.S. If you are part of another church and want to organize your own Night in Prayer, contact Jodi (Jodi@ajesuschurch.org) and she’ll send you whatever might help.
