Prayer Warriors

You are invited to our next Prayer Mountain on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, at 8:00 PM Eastern Time via Zoom. If you are unable to join us but would like to add words of discernment regarding strongholds in the PCC, demonic cloaking, location of the spiritual battle, or any prayer strategies please let us know.

One strategy brought to our attention is for commissioners going to Assembly. If there are intercessors at your church, invite them to pray for you while at Assembly. If you do not have prayer coverage, please let us know, and we will give your name to those who could hold you up in prayer.

If you have any questions or comments, you can email Luke Vanderkamp. See you in prayer!
