24 Hour Prayer Guide
We believe that God hears passionate prayer!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
In order to pray without ceasing, twenty- two churches have unified to pray for Lexington, and the surrounding areas, by taking one day a month (24 hours) to pray. Let us continue to ask God to add more churches as we faithfully follow His guidance.
We hope this prayer guide leads you into an intimate prayer time with Jesus as you intercede for churches, Lexington, and the world. Boldly ask God to turn every heart towards Him, continuing in the work of spiritual revival, awakening, and renewal. Together we are interceding for God’s miraculous intervention in every aspect of the lives and institutions in our city and beyond.
Thank you for praying expectantly for God to transform our community through praying churches!
Spend time giving God glory and thanking Him for who He is and what He has done in your life!

Is there anything you need to confess to the Lord or any burden you need to lay down? Spend time allowing the Lord to search your heart and cleanse you.
