Staring headlong into the brokenness of our culture we often feel crippled beneath the staggering weight of sin and injustice. Yet it's this very same world, beautiful yet devastated, that Jesus looked out upon and prayed, "Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven."
It is with this passion that we will gather for seven days of prayer and fasting for our city. Thousands of people from dozens of churches will come together to present our requests to God.
United by the name of Jesus, His love for the world, and the passion to see it restored by the gospel, gather with us as we seek the peace of our city and present our requests to God.
Seven begins on Sunday, September 29, 2013, and will culminate on the morning of Saturday, October 5. For more information on specific times and gatherings, choose the region closest to where you live.
