Prayer

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Prayer is intimacy with God that leads to the fulfillment of His purposes – Alvin Reed

Intercession is God’s brilliant strategy to include all His people in ruling with Him in power.  It is so simple that anyone can do it, and yet it releases more power than any other activity in which human beings can engage.

It would be impossible to overemphasize the importance of intercessory prayer.  God has chosen intercession as the primary means of releasing His power in the earth.  Scripture makes it clear that intercession is one of the central activities in God’s kingdom, both now and in the ages to come.

Unified Prayer Strategy

The vision that God has given us for prayer is to create and maintain a multilevel prayer network that will cover the Valley in prayer at various levels.

1

Join the Intercessory Prayer Team Monday-Friday mornings from 7:00-8:00 am for an hour of intercessory prayer to seek God’s lead and pray for ministry direction for the community at large.

Through prayer we seek God and his guidance for our valley and how we can work together for solutions on the effects of hunger and homelessness and discernment on what God is doing in his Kingdom in the Yakima Valley.

All are welcome to join.

Location: Householder Residence, 105 S. 41st Street, Yakima.

2

A network of individual prayer warriors building a prayer wall that is connected by social media and email who have signed up to receive and pray for prayer requests related to issues facing the community at large. Our goal is to have at least 1,000 individuals in this network that have agreed to respond in prayer to these requests.Contact us to help us build a prayer wall.

3

24/7 Prayer that works with churches that agree to cover the city or region in prayer for 24 hours one day each month. The 24/7 leadership team meets together monthly to discern the prayer focus for the month and creates a letter outlining this, along with scripture support, and sends it out to the designated church leaders.

See the prayer topics in the right column. You can contact us to sign your church up for 24/7 prayer.
