Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
|City Prayer Leadership Teams (PC2LN)
PC2LN - Prayer Connect Leadership Network is a project of the NationalPrayer Committee and the Mission America Coalition aimed at facilitating prayer and collaborative process, along the prayer-care-share continuum, in both the church ecclesia and diaspora. It is the moblilizing not only of pastors, but of intercessors and pastoral peers among lay persons who are engaged to touch the city in caring ways, to the end that we all fulfill our obligation to the Great Commission.
Prayer is the foundation for every significant work of God in
which we engage. So the goal is notprayer - it is the beginning point. Out of aprayer matrix, a prayer ethos, we want to see city teams emerge that envision a transformed city. The 'Prayer Council' will assist in laying the foundation, but the mission is far beyond that.
We want to connect the Ezras (pastoral leaders), intercessors - across a whole city/county, which has typically never been done, and envision and mobilize Nehemiahs (lay leaders), but not as elders and deacons, but as members of the various vocational tribes in the community, in order for them to be a missional influence.
Currently, Doug is looking for eight to twelve 'pilot' cities as well as existing networks that have already, by the leading of the Spirit, commenced the process. Emaildougsmall@projectpray.org to learn more.
A rhythm of prayer drives the process - daily personal prayer, weekly small group connections, monthly prayer gatherings in congregations, quarterly community-wide prayer gatherings, and annual days of prayer and fasting, such as the National Day of Prayer.
