Mission Moultrie 24/7 Prayer
Strategy & Model…from: americaprays.org
Jesus’ heart for the Church could not have been any clearer—“My house shall
be called a house of prayer for all nations” (Mark 11:17). It has always been
God’s plan for every local church and fellowship in every nation to become
houses of prayer. The question is: how do we help churches develop a
culture and rhythm of prayer?
Our prayer strategy is an expression of the Moravian prayer movement that
began in Herrnhut, Germany in 1727 under the leadership of Count
Zinzendorf. That year, a few believers covenanted to start a 24/7 prayer chain
with at least two people praying every hour. Little did they know that their
prayer watch would last over 100 years . By 1791, the Moravians had prayed
non-stop for 65 years and sent over 300 missionaries around the world. We
ask every church to adopt a monthly day of prayer and cover those 12 or 24 hours in
prayer. The goal is for every church to develop a culture and rhythm of prayer and one
way to do that is to adopt a monthly day of prayer.
OUR STRATEGY IS:
Our strategy is simple—every church in Colquitt County, America and
around the world can adopt a full day of prayer (24 hours) or a half day of
prayer (12 hours) every month. Churches with 20 members and 1000
members can all participate. The monthly day of prayer is not the end
game—it’s the on-ramp.
Our strategy is unifying—Baptist, Reformed, Protestant, Pentecostal, and
non-denominational churches can all adopt a day of prayer and do it their
way at their church. They lead their own monthly day of prayer, but then they
come together to cover their city in prayer in monthly, quarterly and annual
gatherings, which produces a greater level of unity and trust between
Our strategy is pastor-led—it empowers the senior pastor to lead his
church in prayer. It honors the pastor’s authority as God’s appointed leader
for the church.
Our strategy is local-church-based—it engages churches in prayer and
includes the intercessors, who are already praying, but also church members
who may not attend a corporate praying meeting. People can pray from
home, school, a college dorm, a coffee shop, or their home. We believe in the
local church is at the center of God’s plan for the redemption of the world.
Our strategy is powerful—when churches in a city and state pray for the
same things, that targeted and focused prayer is strategic and powerful. This
reflects the power of agreement, as Jesus said in Matthew 18:10, “Truly I tell
you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be
done for them by my Father in heaven.”
Our strategy is sustainable—since every church is only responsible for one
day of prayer a month (or more if they want), it does not burn out any single
church. Local churches have been praying 24/7 for 10 years now in Austin
and Bellingham. This model has staying power. You can’t fake 24/7 prayer for
10 straight years with churches from across the theological spectrum and still
be growing and thriving.
Model…of spiritual awakening is based on the Book of Acts.
1. PRAYER—We believe that all human and spiritual transformation begins
with prayer and is fueled by and sustained by prayer. The first thing the
disciples did after Jesus ascended to heaven was to rush to the Upper Room
and devote themselves to unceasing prayer. Acts 1:14, “They were
continually devoting themselves to prayer.” The Holy Spirit uses prayer
to unite His church and break down denominational, theological, ethnic, and
socio-economic walls that separate us from each other.
2. UNITY—Unceasing prayer brought the disciples to a level of unity they
hadn’t experienced before. There were a lot of rivalries, jealousies, and
competition among the disciples, but when they devoted themselves to
prayer, God began to unite them with one heart for one purpose. Acts
2:1, “They were all in one accord in one place.”
3. EVANGELISM—When the church is united, the Holy Spirit releases a fresh
power in evangelism that results in exponential convert growth. Acts
2:37, “Those who embraced his message were baptized, and about
three thousand were added to the believers that day.” Three thousand
believers were added to the church in a single day when they began to walk in unity.
The purpose and outcome of unity is that people will get saved. The most
credible witness to the world that Jesus is Lord is a unified church. Jesus
prayed in John 17:21, “May all of them may be one, Father, just as you
are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world
may believe that you have sent me.” Only a united church can heal a divided nation.
4. DISCIPLESHIP—Jesus never called us to win converts, but to make
disciples. Once people make a decision for Christ, it is the church’s privilege
and responsibility to nurture them and disciple them into full devotion to
Christ. We believe that discipleship happens best through the local church,
and especially in the context of small groups. Acts 2:42, “They devoted
themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the
breaking of bread and to prayer.”
5. SERVICE—The early followers of Christ were contagious and multiplied
rapidly largely because of their passion for Jesus and their compassion for
people. They were generous with their resources and shared with anyone
who was in need. Acts 2:44-45, “All the believers were together and had
everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they
shared with anyone who was in need.” By the time we get to Acts 6, we
see that the church took on the responsibility of feeding and caring for
widows. We believe that a praying church is a compassionate church.
Serving the poor is not an add-on to the Gospel—it’s at the heart of the
Gospel message. In His very first sermon, Jesus declared in Luke 4:18, “The
Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim
good news to the poor.” Jesus made it clear that the Gospel has a special
application for the poor. James 1:27 confirms the importance of serving the
poor: “Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this:
to care for orphans and widows in their distress.” Compassionate
service confirms our message that God is love.
6. TRANSFORMATION—The disciples didn’t grow big churches that were
isolated but they understood from the beginning that their calling was to be
the light of the world (Matthew 5:14). The early followers of Christ
transformed every culture and society they came into contact with. People
would bring their occult books to the town square and burn them publicly
and embrace Jesus as Lord (Acts 19:19).
In Acts 19:25-27, so many people in the city of Ephesus were getting saved
and forsaking the worship of the goddess Diana and other gods that it was
disrupting their economy that was built on idol worship. Acts 17:6 gives us
insight into the kind of transformation impact they were having on
cities: “These men who have turned the world upside down have
come here also.” Transformation of society is the real biblical evidence that
a spiritual awakening is taking place in a city or nation.
Churches can include additional prayer requests, but these are the 8 main areas we are praying for:
1. PRAY FOR PERFECT UNITY OF THE CHURCH. Pray for the perfect unity Jesus
prayed for, and that the unified Body of Christ in Moultrie and Colquitt
County would be a glorious witness of Jesus and of the Father’s love for us.
Pray that denominational, theological, and ethnic walls will come down so
that pastors will love each other, pray together, and serve each other. (John
17:20-23; Psalm 133:1; Ephesians 4:3-6)
2. PRAY FOR A NATIONAL SPIRITUAL AWAKENING. Pray that Jesus will revive
and awaken the Church in Colquitt County and our nation to the greatness
and supremacy of Jesus. Pray that God will pour out His Spirit on America
and forgive our sin and heal our land. Pray that millions of Americans will be
convicted by the Holy Spirit, repent of their sins, and turn to God with all their
hearts. (2 Chron. 7:14; Daniel 9:18-19; Psa. 85:6; Hab. 3:2; Acts 2:37-41)
3. PRAY FOR UNBELIEVERS TO BE SAVED. Pray that people’s hearts will be
opened to repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Savior. Pray that every
person in Colquitt County and in the world will be able to hear the Gospel in
their native language. Pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send out labors into
the harvest field. (Luke 10:2; Matthew 9:37-38; 24:14; Romans 10:1; 2 Peter 3:9;
Acts 26:18; Luke 5:32; Jere. 24:7; Deut. 29:4)
4. Pray for Pastors to preach the truth of the Gospel in love and walk in
the fear and admonition of the Lord, unhindered by the fear of man
(1 Tim. 6:11-16)
5. PRAY FOR FAMILIES. Pray that Jesus will heal, restore, and strengthen every
marriage and family. Pray that husbands will love their wives like Christ loves
the church and that wives will respect and submit to their husbands. Pray
that the hearts of parents will be turned toward their children to love them
and raise them in a God-honoring way. Pray that the hearts of children be
turned toward their parents in love, honor, respect and obedience. (Genesis
2:24; Joshua 24:15; Psalm 127:3-5; Malachi 4:6; Ephesians 5:22-33; Ephesians 6:1-4)
6. PRAY FOR RACIAL RECONCILIATION. Pray that God will heal our nation of
racism and use the church to stand against racial conflict, violence, and
prejudice. The church must lead the way in racial reconciliation by modeling
love and respect for every person regardless of the color of their skin or their
ethnic background. (Romans 10:12-13, Galatians 3:28, Acts 10:28, Acts 10:34-
35, John 7:24, 1 John 2:9, James 2:9, Revelation 7:9)
7. PRAY FOR LIFE TO BE VALUED AND PROTECTED THROUGH ALL STAGES OF
LIFE, BEGINNING AT CONCEPTION. Pray for God to break the culture of death
in America and restore a culture of life. Pray for legalized abortion to come to
an end. (Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5; Proverbs 24:11; Deuteronomy 21:8-9)
8. PRAY FOR LOCAL AND NATIONAL GOVERNMENT LEADERS. Pray that God
will help them make wise decisions and govern with integrity, justice, and
mercy. (1 Tim. 2:1-2; Rom. 13:1; 1 Pet. 2:17; Titus 3:1-2; Micah 6:8)
