What is Pray Newaygo?
Pray Newaygo is a movement of prayer focused on equipping and unifying our local churches to strategically pray for each person in the Greater Newaygo County Area.
The Pray Newaygo Team praying for our churches and pastors, pastors praying for their church leaders, church leaders praying for their congregation and congregates praying for people in our community, by name, for 30 days…where there is much prayer, there is much power!
When will this take place? Mid-February to Mid-March, leading up to Easter.
Why Should We Do This?
PROMISES OF SCRIPTURE
The scriptures teach that there is a clear connection between faithful prayer and Spirit-filled revival. Together we kneel before God in prayer on every joy-filled promise of His Word for the sake of those who don’t yet love and follow Jesus.
THE PROOF OF HISTORY
History reminds us that Spirit-filled revival nearly always begins when God’s people humble themselves through prayer and fasting. Together we ask God to move powerfully in the hearts of every person in our cities and beyond.
OUR PREVAILING NEED
Our cultural moment illuminates the reality that our world is in need of a Spirit-filled awakening. We believe awakening starts with the church, and then spreads into the cities and beyond. Together we ask God to awaken His people, so we can glorify God and bless those He has placed around us.
POWER OF GOD TO CHANGE LIVES
We believe no person is beyond the reach of God’s transforming love. Jesus is willing and able to change a person’s life. Together we ask God to touch hearts, heal the hurting, deliver the oppressed, and to restore each and every person to their God-given destiny.
How Will We Do This?
The Pray Newaygo Team is gathering monthly to pray for our churches and pastors and to prepare for the 30-day encounter. We are connecting with church and ministry leaders to cast the Pray Newaygo vision. Churches committed to participating in Pray Newaygo will be able to register their church right on the Pray Newaygo website (soon to come). Congregation members will be able to register under their churches, and individuals, not currently connected with a church, will also be able to register and participate.
Next, we equip people and churches with simple, Biblical, practical resources designed to help the body of Christ collectively pray for every person, by name, in the Greater Newaygo County Area.
In addition, postcards will be provided to each prayer partner so they can write a personal note to each person they are praying for on their unique list.
Finally, we encounter God personally and communally as we passionately seek God on our own each day and come together collectively within our churches for special times of prayer and worship on behalf of the Greater Newaygo County Area.
