It’s one of the best things we do all year! This year’s 40 Days of Prayer is focused on the theme of “Kindness.” We want to focus our faith on Christian kindness, and spread that kindness all over our community this fall!
Our “40 Days of Kindness” has 3 pieces to it:
1. Our 40 Days of Kindness, October 2nd-November 10. Emphasizing prayer and kindness in our own personal faith for 40 Days, with 6 weekly Kindness Challenges to spur us on. One of those challenges is to read and pray about our daily kindness articles, written by our members for each day, and intended to help us focus our hearts and prayers on kindness. The daily articles are posted each morning on our church blog, and we also link to the blog daily through our Great Oaks social media accounts and email updates.
2. Our 24 Hour Prayer Vigil, November 8-9. We will take prayer requests from both members and friends as we get closer to the November Prayer Weekend, and we will sign up for 1-hour Prayer Times to pray through the prayer requests. There will be someone (or multiple someones) praying through the prayer requests for 24 straight hours. We have prayer request cards in the lobby, but you may also submit prayer requests here: http://www.greatoaks.org/prayer/
3. Our Praying for Memphis Sunday, November 10. We end the 40 Days with Praying for Memphis Sunday. Our morning worship will be focused on asking God’s blessing on our community, and asking that He help us shine His light in the Memphis area. We will have a potluck lunch following our morning worship.
