A 7 Day City Prayer Campaign

pRAY fOR THE PEACE OF yOUR CITY  

This wild season of significant upheaval has touched every city in America. The restrictions of Covid - resulting in devastating local hardships, the groundswell of activism which kickstarted movement toward greater equity in places it had stalled, while simultaneously hurling us into incredibly difficult conversations & skirmishes about past & present issues of discrimination. Add to this the messiness from all the apocalyptic & political chatter as we head into national elections in a season where polarization, divisiveness, & all manner of unfriending is at an all-time high.  Whew!

City Throughout Election Week.

#Unitednotdivided

The week of the election we're inviting you to pray for the SHALOM of your city.  To pull up from the intensity of the issues trenches & zoom out to pray for the peace of your city. The kind of peace that is not about the absence of conflict, but about prioritizing the presence of Christ. A peace that's not rooted in partisan & issue agreement, but in true unity.  Praying for the kind of peace & prosperity that results in reconnecting, reconciliation, rebuilding & restoration in all sectors of your city & its societies in ways needed most. 

seek the peace and prosperity of the city into which I have carried you. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper -Jer 29:7

SHALOM in our Covid-impaled vulnerable communities needing necessities & heroes. SHALOM in our civic centers & on main streets - 1/2 open with perseverance & grit, & 1/2 shuttered lamenting no resurrection. SHALOM to families reorienting around the homefront & computer screens for work, learning, & play. SHALOM throughout our police agencies, & in the hallowed halls of justice systems & seats of government. SHALOM in the political discourse & voting process picking leaders & costing friendships. SHALOM to protestors advocating change with their signs, voices & hope filling up our streets. SHALOM in our dating apps & What'sApps & all the virtual sacred & secular gathering spaces that thread us together.

 

As we take 7 days to pray the peace of God over our cities, may the God of peace respond with mercy & miracles.
