thousands of churches will be praying for our country. Through an historic initiative called Pray31, congregations from coast to coast will experience the power of intensive, purposeful prayer. It’s part of a nationwide movement with the ultimate goal of one million people praying for one month for this one nation under God.
And it's not too late for your church to participate. If you begin Pray31 on Sunday October 9th your church's Pray31 Journey will end right on Election Day, November 8th.
Pray31 is based on a simple plan: 31 days of focused prayer for America.
The guide for this 31-day journey is a unique resource, the Pray31 U.S. Prayer Atlas. Church members use the Atlas for just a few minutes every day, praying for that day’s requests. By the end of the 31 days, they will have prayed across America. In the process, their own lives will be spiritually enriched and energized.
The Pray31 Leader’s Guide provides a detailed, step-by-step strategy. The guide includes a planning calendar, pastoral letters, sermon outlines, and other elements to enliven the church’s 31-day prayer journey. Also available are bulletin inserts, posters, PowerPoint slides, banner graphics and more. And, of course, the primary resource—the Pray31 U.S. Prayer Atlas
Pray31 is unique because it won’t interfere with your church's pre-arranged schedule, programs or ministries. In fact, it enhances all other activities as it deepens the prayer life of the church.
It costs very little to implement the Pray31 strategy. The only expense is what you invest in copies of the Pray31 U.S. Prayer Atlas for each church member. And thanks to the deep discounts being offered to churches, that cost is reduced significantly. Participating churches receive the Leader’s Guide and all other program materials at no additional cost.
Strategic, focused, purposeful prayer makes such an impact! Your church will experience that impact as you conduct your own Pray31 emphasis. There is no doubt: This is important. The spiritual health of our country is at stake, and prayer can make the difference!
