For the past 10 years, pastors and churches have been praying 24/7 in Whatcom County, Washington. Under Dr. Jason Hubbard’s leadership, over 40 churches have adopted a day of prayer every month. Watch this video of the transformation in this county that came through united, strategic prayer.
The Whatcom County story is one of the 24/7 prayer models that inspired America Prays. Read more below to learn about this prayer movement with a national and global vision.
Our vision is to unite and equip 40,000 churches in 24/7 prayer for a national spiritual awakening. Our global vision is to unite and equip 5 million churches in 24/7 prayer for a global spiritual awakening.
Our call is to devote ourselves to unceasing prayer for our communities and our nation. The Early Church was united in prayer, and a unified church is the most credible witness to the world that Jesus is Lord. “These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer.” —Acts 1:14
Every church in America regardless of their size, location, annual budget, worship style or theology can adopt a day or half day of prayer every month. A monthly day of prayer is not the end game, but it is a simple on-ramp that helps churches develop a culture of prayer.
Churches adopt a monthly day of prayer or half day of prayer and cover those 12-24 hours in prayer. Recruit people to pray in 30-60 minute segments from home, work, school or at church. Churches pray the same day of the month (the 1st, etc.) or day of the week (the 3rd Wed., etc,).
