Prayer First, our Sunday morning prayer group/meeting, has been birthed out of a desire to have a weekly opportunity to pray together for our fellowship -- our vision, leaders, ministries, services and events.
The name, Prayer First, speaks to:

  • the priority of prayer - as foundational to all we are and do
  • the first day of the week - we meet on Sunday
  • the time of day - we meet fairly early in the morning! - 8am
  • and the service during which we meet - 1st service

Join us each Sunday at 8am in B1 to cover our fellowship in prayer. We will also have times when we may prayer-walk the property, the neighborhood or elsewhere, or pray for current topics in addition to our fellowship. Everyone is welcome -- just show up to join your hearts and prayers with others who love our Open Door family and want to see God's will done in and through us.

Ok, here’s the irony: the name of this blog is Unceasing. And we haven’t ceased to pray, but, well, you guessed it, we have had a bit of cessation from blogging! I want to remedy that, even though it is a bit intimidating, since so much time has gone by, and so much has happened!

We want to continue to use this blog as a place to share:
stories of how God is working in us
our passion for Christ, and our love of being with Him
the ways He is maturing us in relationship and partnership with Him through prayer
our belief (and experiences) that the creative arts can be a form of prayer
thoughts, quotes and resources that have encouraged us, that may bless and encourage you as well

But first, we need to catch up . . .

Last year, after our one week of 24/7 prayer, which extended into two weeks, we were stunned, overwhelmed, and grateful at what God had done. But we were also somewhat stumped as to . . . what next? Except of course, for the need for more prayer . . .

Lite the Fire

In 2008 we were part of an initiative to encourage 24/7 prayer throughout the state of Arizona. Check out our week on the Lite the Fire website.
