This article highlights a portion of the most recent history for the spiritual move in Anoka. The text of some news articles of the past will also be posted in this section.

The following information is from the Pray Anoka website, the most recent predecessor of Anoka Awakening. Pray Anoka is also the founding group of the Anoka Prayer Group.

A group of Christians from several faith communities began meeting for prayer in the City of Anoka, Minnesota in September of 2011. We meet weekly to pray for current community concerns, for revival and transformation within our area churches and for a sovereign move of God’s Holy Spirit to transform the City of Anoka and surrounding communities. We invite you to connect with us!
