This article in Leadership Journal is a sad indictment on the state of the American church. Like never before we have the opportunity to reach people around the globe but we're neglecting to wield the most powerful weapon in our arsenal: Prayer.
When we started Echo, we made a commitment to making prayer a foundation of our church. We usually meet on Wednesday nights in order to lift up our city before God in prayer.
As we approach our relaunch, we're trying to get a group of people praying for Echo and the desired expansion of our ministry. Beginning Saturday July 8th, this time of petition will last four weeks culminating in a prayer service during our Sunday gathering on August 6th.
We're asking for people like you to join is in four weeks of prayer for our church, our community, and our mission. As we seek 100 prayer partners, there are three things we need from you:
1) Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you will be praying with us. 2) Refer to this site: http://agentemily.googlepages.com/home, our prayer webpage. 3) Forward this request to people who would be interested in joining our prayer time.
With God all things are possible, so we're giving it up to Him.
Please join us.
