Today is the National Day of Prayer(Check it out). The government, our government, has actually requested that you and I pray. For them. For our nation. For our world. Today is a day for the truest kind of Patriotism. Today is a day set aside for prayer.  

Will you pray?

If you will, and if you're able, I'd love to have you join us at Neighborhood Church in Redding tonight, at 6:30pm for a 'Concert of Prayer."

"What is that?" Fair question.

A 'Concert of Prayer' is a time of worship in prayer and song. It is 'concerted prayer,' a time of coordinated, purposeful prayer. In 1744, a group of Scottish ministers banded together across denominational lines to pray for revival in their land. Encouraged by the richness of the fruits of their labor, they called the worldwide church to join them in prayer. Among those answering the call in America was Jonathan Edwards, the great Puritan minister and theologian, who enlisted the aid of New England churches to unite in this "concert of prayer."  

Concerts of prayer have been the common denominator for many powerful religious revivals throughout the ages. G. Campbell Morgan taught, "We cannot organize revival, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from Heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again." We hope you'll join us at Neighborhood Church to "set our sails" in prayer for our nation, our region, our church, and our families. Please come. We won't make you pray out loud, or do anything you're not comfortable with. Your presence will add power to our prayer. 

God promises, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14, NKJV.

Time: 6:30-8p.m.
