IF:Pray – An invitation to come

A year ago, I just happened to show up at a Chet’s prayer gathering. It was one of the first evenings I ventured out after having my second child. I could have easily missed this, but somehow God got me there. I had no idea what to expect and I only knew two faces in the room, but that didn’t matter.

I took my seat. We worshiped. We all prayed together. Then we broke into small groups to pray for specific “calls to prayer.” Some prayed aloud, while others prayed silently. The presence of God was heavy in the room.

We started praying for the unreached people of the world – people who had never heard the name of Jesus. My heart ached for these people. I started praying, but then something amazing happened –  something I hadn’t experienced in a long time – the Holy Spirit prayed through me. I’m not talking about anything strange; but the passion and the words, they weren’t my own. It was almost like I felt the Lord’s heart for His people.

I’m telling you this because I know Jesus is going to show up again this year.

And I don’t want you to miss it.

It’s not even about the anointing that He may pour out – that’s an added blessing.

It’s about aligning our hearts with His.

Maybe it has been awhile since you’ve felt the presence of God? Or maybe you are burdened by all that is going on in our world today? If so, I urge you to come. Get rid of excuses. Don’t be intimidated. And it doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone going. I promise you will leave feeling connected. Nothing is more powerful than joining together with women for one simple reason: To pray.

Join us as we pray for God’s people, His church, and our world.

Come and see God move. Come and be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
