praying “on earth as it is in heaven”
Prayer is central to living out the way of Jesus in our world. When Jesus teaches His disciples to pray, He starts with “God Our Father” and moves to asking for His Kingdom, His will to be done on earth as it is already done in heaven. Thus, praying to God starts with us aligning ourselves His kingdom and His will to do as He would in Vancouver.
Prayer is “the highest activity of the human soul. Man is at his greatest and highest when upon his knees he comes face to face with God.”
Our vision is to see a renewal of God in our city, yet we know renewal can only happen in the presence of God. To that end, we seek to make prayer a regular part of our lives.
We’re partnering with churches around Metro Vancouver to launch a 24/7 prayer initiative throughout the month of May.
To have people signed up to pray for every hour of the entire month.
The purpose of this prayer chain is to be a visible reminder that for every single hour this month someone is praying for the Church and for God to put an end to this pandemic.
What do you do?
Click on a date and an hour slot that you’ll pray. You’ll get a reminder email an hour before your chosen prayer time.
We meet on Zoom to pray and intercede to for each other, our city, and our world. Every Wednesday at 12PM-1PM.
Each week someone different facilitates this hour of prayer.
Maybe you sense the Holy Spirit moving and you want someone to pray with you, or you feel anxious and need someone to talk to, or you’re unable to get get groceries or other needs met because of Covid-19–whatever it is we want to help.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
