1. The Plan

The plan in a nutshell is to pray for the church overall, the body of Christ, and an individual church, a congregation, each day. We will lock in as a group, by faith whether together in body or not, to bathe a congregation in prayer for roughly one hour of their assigned day.

This will begin in the City of Anoka and then radiate out into Anoka County. (Note: This can be replicated in other areas, however, my mandate at this time is in Anoka.)

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

·       This is my end of the earth; where I am

·       The Holy Spirit has come upon me

·       Jerusalem is the city where I live

·       All Judea and Samaria is the surrounding area

·       To the ends of the earth is to wherever He sends me

·       I am, and shall be, a witness to Jesus Christ

A list will be prepared and posted with each church congregation and an assigned date. All who care to participate will pray for that congregation on the specified date.

Personal preparation is necessary so our prayers will not be hindered. We do not wish to bring any personal judgmentalism or issues into the mix. We seek to pray with a sense of love, grace, and compassion for the people and their congregation.

A sample prayer will be prepared and posted from which each participant can adapt as led by Holy Spirit. God is certainly capable of leading us in how He would like us to pray in order to come into agreement with Him as we co-labor together.

 

On a side note, my personal plan is to meet with a representative of each congregation to introduce myself and let them know that we are praying for them. If they are willing to share their heart’s desires for their congregation, I could post that for all of us to take to the Lord in prayer.
