Getting Involved! Host A Prayer Event!

Instructions for Hosting an Event

Perhaps, God is speaking to your heart to open your home or talk with your Pastor to open the church for prayer. If God is moving your heart to organize a prayer event, simply follow these instructions below titled, Getting Involved.

Gird Yourself Spiritually. Pray and Seek God’s direction.

Second, find organizations that will help you stay in touch with whats going on in the nation for your daily and continual prayer. Here are a few:

The National Day of Prayer
The Presidential Prayer Team
Intercessors for American
Awaken The Dawn

Next, form a size group God provides, or a helper and discuss who will come and how to invite them. Is this open to the community or only for churches? Whether you’re an organizer or not; God looks for willing hearts.

Then, decide on the location. E.g. the park, a coffee shop, your home, or your church. You may need to make reservations at some locations so please consider doing this soon, as some venues require planning months in advance. Remember its okay to keep it simple–don’t stress.

Promote the event. Create a flyer. Downloadable flyer templates can provide you with a beautiful flyer. Visit The National Day of Prayer Store for items of interest. We can provide you with a packet of items and videos that your pastor and congregation can use to promote your prayer event. Create flyers and display on community board bulletins. Ask local shops to place flyers on the counters. Another option is using social media as a platform to spread the word. With social media, you can promote your event without any costs.
Additionally, we can help promote your event! Be sure to provide us with details of your prayer event and we will add it to our list of prayer events in Arizona on our website. People can visit The Arizona National Day of Prayer to find a local prayer event they can attend. With your permission, we can post your event on our Facebook page as well. We will provide you with links to share with your Facebook friends, email, or text them.

What to pray for? The National Day of Prayer has 7 Important Points of Prayer: Government (Federal, State and Local), Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and, Families. Remember, this list is not exhaustive–you can always add to it!

Is this the first time you have ever coordinated anything in your life! No need to be intimidated. You’ll do just fine! And, did I mention, if you have questions, email us at info@azndp.org. And of course, we will be praying for you.

Join In Prayer

First, Pray and let God Lead

God, through His Word, teaches us to pray for our leaders. Those who are over us making decisions for us every day. Whether we agree with their policies or not, they need prayer. The National Day of Prayer sets precedence on one day out of the year for Christians of all backgrounds to gather and pray. Every first Thursday in May, prayer is heard throughout America, in churches, parks, conference rooms, auditoriums, and in our own homes. We pray for Government (Federal, State and Local), Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and, Families. We lift these important prayer points to our Loving Father.

There are numerous testimonies from the Bible of prayer warriors who were in war confronting the enemy and there was no other way out. They would humble themselves and through prayer, God heard from Heaven and brought deliverance. Their nation was changed and it was all through the power of Prayer. Sometimes God, who was named Warrior would fight the battle for them. God is our Deliverer. God is faithful to those who put their trust in Him.

Daniel 10:12, NIV: “Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and thimble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.

Exodus 15:3,7, NIV: “The Lord is a Warrior; the Lord is His Name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has hurled into the sea.” “In the Greatness of Your Majesty, You threw down those who opposed you.”

2 Kings 7 – At dusk, they got up and went to the camp of the Arameans. When they reached the edge of the camp, no one was there, for the Lord had caused the Arameans to hear the sound of chariots and horses and a great army, so that they said to one another, ‘Look, the king of Israel has hired the Hittite and Egyptian kings to attack us!’ So they got up and fled in the dusk and abandoned their tents and their horses and donkeys. They left the camp as it was and ran for their lives.”

Would you find a location near you on May 3 and join with His people in prayer?
