One of the hopes of Awakenings Prayer is to stir the heart for active ministry. Having gained some comfort in silence – just being still and knowing God – we begin to sense a whole new world of active obedience to His will. He pulls us beyond ourselves and sends us out into the world. What might He do through us as we whisper back, “yes!”?  API TWO students will be doing a prayer project this year. Project ideas we’ve heard folks talking about include beginning regular prayer walks in your neighborhood – inviting friends. Or setting up a prayer room in your home or church. Or maybe starting a habit of morning devotions with your family, or introducing breath prayer to a devotional time you already have. What are your ideas?

How’s this for a prayer project? This last summer, API began developing some prayer materials for a group of people involved in church planting. Six of us spent a day in Edmonds praying for prospective church planters going through an assessment process to see if they are cut out for that rigorous route. This led to one of craziest prayer projects I’ve ever undertaken as we took the prayer team across three states to pray onsite for another church planters assessment. I never thought I would be a church planter, but not long ago, in Boise, Idaho, I had the privilege to be a part of the process.

Let Pastor Wes tell you about it. Watch this and then ask yourself, how far would you go?
