Mobilize Your Community to Prayer

There is still time to find the resources you need to mobilize your church, business, school, and community to prayer. There are a number of event ideas, promotional tools and resources you can use right now to get started. Also be sure to list your gathering on our website so others can find it. The Scriptures tell us that where two or more are gathered, there He is in their midst (Matthew 18:20). So, start simple and enjoy the journey. Organizing prayer is exciting and we are delighted you have joined with us in this ministry to our nation.

Our goal is to see communities transformed across America through the power of prayer and that happens one family at a time. Lives are being changed and we pray in expectation believing that God can and will make a difference if we seek Him (II Chronicles 7:14). Together we can make a difference – ONE VOICE, UNITED IN PRAYER!
