Speaking of Arizona . . .
This was our fourth year of non-stop prayer. For the past three of those, we have been part of Lite the Fire's AZPray initiative. Since January, 2008, each and every week the "torch" of 24-7, non-stop prayer has been passed from location to location. Churches, businesses, hospitals, and even homes have hosted prayer round the clock at numerous locations throughout the state. In other words, Arizona has been covered, week by week, and hour by hour, in prayer, since December 31st, 2007.
Each year, as we have hosted the week of prayer, we have received the "torch" (symbolically represented by a camping flash light), as well as a book in which to write how God meets with us throughout the week. At the end of the week, they are passed on to the next prayer location. This station (above) was a place to read and reflect on what folks who had hosted 24/7 prayer during the weeks earlier in the year had written, as well as record our own thoughts and prayers.
