7:14 Prayer

"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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

In the month of July, we are asking 70 (or more) people to commit to 14 minutes of prayer, 7 days a week! We believe that prayer has the power to change ALL things, and we want to stand in the gap for our nation. Let's make a difference! Would you like to be a part of this? Register here to let us know that you are going to be praying with us! 

Every Wednesday, we will update this page with 7 new prayer topics, each with a short prayer and some scripture to get you started! We have kept some the same, but we have also added a few new prayer topics! If you spend two minutes on each one, you will have completed your 14 minutes– but you don't have to stop there!
