What if… God were to call on women to gather together to pray for their family, their friends, the people in their lives, the people they love?
God were to call an army of women to engage in intense, purposeful prayer?
hundreds of women answered that call and came together all at once to pray in one massive all-at-the-same-time gathering?
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.
In ways that made sense to us, in ways that we could understand.
And He did!
Since that first Night in Prayer, nine 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.
We walk in the door, every one of us, with 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 gathering at midnight on April 4th, through 6 A.M. the next morning to pray all night together… for those we love, for ourselves, for God’s kingdom to come crashing into our messiness here and now.
We’ll be gathering both on the Westside and at Bridgetown and at Sunset this year. I’ll be leading on the Westside and Tammy and her team will guide you at Bridgetown, while Carmen and her crew oversee the women at Sunset.
Will you join us?
I love the LORD because He hears and answers
Because He bends down and listens,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
Filled with His hope,
P.S. If you’ve been to a Night in Prayer in the past, would you leave a comment here? I think your stories might just give some women the courage to come…
