Fall is upon us. Classes are back in session. Rhythm is somewhat restored. And God is moving among us. It is not simply business as usual. Much prayer is going on.  We’ll be finishing up the three-week prayer watch, but undoubtedly prayer will continue to increase. Here are several opportunities you can chose from to continue praying with others from across our city. Even if you can’t join us on-site, please pray with us from wherever you are. Use the theme to focus your prayer that day!
