24-7 week of non-stop prayer
Friday at 7pm, April 15 - Saturday at 12 noon, April 23


Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca, 
they make it a place of springs;
       the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
 They go from strength to strength,
       till each appears before God in Zion. 
Psalm 84:5-7

Our week of 24-7 prayer will be a time to clear the calendar and come away from the hustle and bustle, to settle in and settle down and be with Jesus.

Our theme this year is Pilgrimage, and it is an opportunity to reflect on our own journeys with God and the ways Jesus has not only gone before us, but is right now with us as we walk through many of the same kinds of experiences and situations that He did.

This year, our week of prayer falls during "Holy Week," in other words, the week right before Easter.  What a wonderful way to prepare for Good Friday and Easter Sunday, by taking an hour or two and spending it in reflection, worship and prayer, as well as in experiencing the interactive prayer stations that are being prepared for you.

A new and significant "piece" of our week of prayer this year will be "Beyond our Door," where we will be challenged to not only reflect on the inner heart pilgrimage of our own personal journeys with God, but to also go beyond ourselves and our Open Door sanctuary and, literally, take our prayers out into the community.  We have several specific locations chosen in the Sunnyslope area where we will have the opportunity to go and pray onsite during our week of prayer, asking God not only to bless these locations and the ministry that takes place there, but also asking Him to continue to woo us to see, pray, and serve beyond ourselves.
