PRAYER EXPERIENCE 2020

We know that this year's prayer experience will be different because it's taking place in your home. But what a fun opportunity for the whole family to get involved. 

1. We will provide a list of simple materials for you to gather in preparation.

2. We will also provide several prayer stations just for kids!

3. There will be instructions to get you started as well as instructions for each station.

How to set the tone:

 

1. Pick a specific room or rooms for your experience to take place. The kitchen and living room might be easiest. Use surfaces like the counter top, the kitchen table, coffee tables, or corners of your room. Tidy things up ahead of time to make it less distracting.

2. When it's time to begin, turn on any soft worship playlist to play throughout your rooms. Here's our playlist! 

3. Decide ahead of time if you'll do each station as a family or if you'll take turns. 

4. Set a timer when you begin, to stay on track. 

5. Maybe your family would consider (safely & cautiously) circling the church 7 times, some time throughout the day to complete the 40 days. 

STATION 1: GROWTH

What you'll need: Choose from the following, or use all: (1) a plant (or picture of one), (2) soil (3) seeds (4) or instead you can go outside and pray by a tree.

Instructions: As you pray, hold the plant or touch the tree, or grip the soil/seeds.

Pray: On this 40th day, we continue to pray for church growth. Just as these things that we hold and touch grow, we want our church to grow. Plant our church roots in deep and let our arms stretch wide. Give us the nutrients that we need to grow and reach people. We want to reach more people for Jesus and we want to grow the kingdom of God, so please help us and empower us to do so. 

Right now, draw people to our website and help our online-invites reach more people than we could imagine. Use this time of church online to speak to more people than ever before. Help our online presence, personally and church-wide, to grab peoples' attention and bring them close to You, Jesus. 

And when our Church doors open again, bring floods of people to our building to find a community like they've never experienced before. Bring a sense of family and life like we haven't seen yet. Let it be so powerful that it can't be contained. Refresh our appreciation for meeting together, as well as our appreciation of simple freedoms.

Bring growth to this church as well as your Church at large.

STATION 2: MORENO VALLEY

What you'll need: Have these pictures available on a device or print these pictures out. Click HERE. You could also print a picture of your child's teacher and principal to make it more personal for them.

Instructions: As you go through each picture and name, pray for these people one by one.

Pray: We pray for these people who hold leadership positions in our city. We pray that you would guide them with Godly wisdom. We pray that every decision that they make would be what's best for our city. Give them the wisdom, the energy, the passion, and the hope to press on during good times and hard times. Help them as they work to protect our city and keep us safe. We also pray that they would come to know You, Jesus, if they don't already.

We pray that You, Lord, would help our city and watch over it. Put an end to violence, gangs, and other activity that hurts and harms us. Bring to our city a spirit of peace and love through all people. We pray that you would change what our city is known for and give us a new reputation-one that honors You.
