24-7 Prayer Week
Yesterday we kicked off a 24-7 Prayer week at my church. Sunday morning about 10 middle and high school kiddos transformed my office into the prayer room while sweating, laughing, and eating Doritos.
We’re about 30 hours into it and we’ve had a pretty much unbroken chain of prayer, much to my surprise. This afternoon I left the room because I needed to sleep, not freaking out that I was “breaking the chain.” I returned to find out that one of our awesome maintenance guys had taken the room once I left. So great.
If you are anywhere in the MD/VA area and want to come be a part of it, let me know. (I’d love to see you and serve you hot coffee, too.) Here’s our online sign-ups if you wanna jump in. Our last hour will be 3:00pm on Sunday, June 24th: Click here, champ.
It is very fun to see people sign-up out of curiosity (or to “make Jenelle happy”) and then to watch them leave the room jazzed by God’s Presence, and then immediately signing up for more hours. Today a guy left the prayer room and then asked me if there is need for more people to go out of the country to do missions work!
I love 24-7 prayer. It is so fun. God does stuff when you give him the space and invite others inside.
It is midnight and two teenage girls are staying up with me to unlock the big church doors and let older people in for their late night hours.
