It’s one of the best things we do all year! This year’s 40 Days of Prayer shares our theme for 2017: “Hope in God.” Our “Prayer Season” has 3 pieces to it:
1. Our 40 Days of Prayer. Emphasizing our daily, private prayer lives for 40 Days. We have a prayer booklet with a devo thought for each day, intended to inspire some prayerful thoughts. We envision each of us reading the devo and then taking some time to pray each day. (The daily prayer booklet thoughts will also be posted each morning on our church blog.)
2. Our 24 Hour Prayer Vigil, November 10-11. We will take prayer requests as we get closer, and we will sign up for 1-hour Prayer Times to come up to the building and pray through the prayer requests. There will be someone (or multiple someones) praying here at the building for 24 straight hours. We are handing out prayer request cards, but you may also submit prayer requests here: https://www.greatoaks.org/prayer/
3. Our Praying for Memphis Sunday, November 12. Our morning worship will be focused on asking God’s blessing on our community, and asking that He help us shine His light. We will have a potluck lunch following our morning worship. We will also have several service opportunities that weekend.
