If you’re trying to decide whether your church should take part in One Prayer, I wanted to share some potential benefits:
- People who don’t go to church take notice when churches bicker and tear each other down. You can show them something different with One Prayer. Instead of just talking about Jesus, we display His love through a unified and global biblical community.
- It’s a great way to bring energy to your church during what typically might be a slow season.
- One Prayer can help your people shift their focus outward through community service and outreach projects, as well as an offering to inspire generosity beyond the four walls of your church building.
- It’s the perfect opportunity for corporate prayer and fasting.
- If you’ve been wondering whether video teaching would work at your church, One Prayer is a low-risk way to try it out.
- You can build new relationships with churches in your community. Team up with them on a service project or simply use it as the reason to reach out and make a connection with other pastors. You never know what might result from those relationships!
- One Prayer is a chance for your church to experience something global. So far, churches from South Africa, Guatemala, Great Britain, India, Nigeria, Honduras, Australia, Bolivia, and more are participating.
- It gives pastors 3-4 weeks off from teaching, while other great spiritual leaders bring new perspectives to your church.
Now is the ideal time to register your church for One Prayer 2010.
If you’re already signed up, we’re glad to have you on board! We’d love it if you tell other pastors about One Prayer. We don’t want to leave anyone out that wants to participate. Don’t assume that everyone knows…they don’t. Please take the time to invite your networks of relationships to join with us all. We’ve prepared some resources to make it easy for you to spread the word.
I’m really excited to see what God does in and through our churches during the third year of One Prayer!
