PRAYER

Would you commit the first Wednesday of every month as a day to pray and fast for our community? 

 

BIG IDEA: A note from Stephan Tchividjian

Why now? Today, we sense God doing something incredible in our community. Though we live in challenging times, it’s in these time that we see God’s presence in ways often overlooked. It is not an accident that we are located in this part of the planet at this particular time.

Big Idea. Several great leaders in our community have spoken of the notion of creating some space around collaborative prayer. From this came the BIG IDEA: taking the first Wednesday of every month to pray and fast for our community. 

Get People Praying! Just imagine the entire Christian community in South Florida praying and fasting together – and how God will use that! Get your families, ministries, businesses, churches etc, involved. Our team will be praying for you on the first Wednesday of every month. We hope that you will be praying, too.

Text Reminders: for reminders and monthly prayer topics,  “opt in” by texting “praysf” to 97000.

So, that’s it. Let’s pray!
