Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
If you were to create an annual prayer calendar with the most significant prayer events included, one of those "must-have" events would be Seek God for the City, the Lenten prayer campaign promoted each year by Waymakers.
Seek God aims to unite believers and churches in prayer for their cities and communities by providing a daily prayer guide covering the period from Ash Wednesday through Palm Sunday. Available as a printed booklet and as an app for iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire, the SGFC prayer guide leads participants on a prayer journey through their communities and around the world.
Seek God is written in devotional style, each day featuring Scripture verses, a brief written out prayer, further prayer bullet points and countries of the world to pray for. The app links these countries to Operation World's website, which provides more detailed information for each country. Each day also includes an idea for prayer-walking. The daily devotions are grouped into weekly themes, all around the general topic of Seeking God.
Churches and individuals across the country use Seek God for the City to inform their prayers for their cities and communities. The consistently vertical context of the prayers combines with a focus on specific segments of city and community to create an unusually well-balanced prayer initiative. If you're looking for a great way to pray for your neighbors and your community, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more comprehensive, more God-focused, more balanced prayer guide. Additionally, a free children's prayer guide (PDF) is available for download from the Waymakers website, making prayer accessible to the entire family.
The Seek God for the City campaign runs from Ash Wednesday (February 10) through Palm Sunday (March 20). We invite all members of Pray.Network to join in the prayer! The printed guide is sold out, but you can still download the app - click on the picture at the top of this Spotlight to go to the webpage where you can access the various app stores. In addition, you can participate in several ways right here on Pray.Network:
The greatest gift you can give your neighbors, your community, and your city is the gift of prayer. Join us!
