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:
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.
