“America United in Prayer”
Thursday, May 3rd
Day of Praise and Prayer in Daley Plaza
“Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.” I Corinthians 12:20 & 27
Our goal for the day is to glorify Christ by seeking Him in prayer on behalf of our city, state and national leaders, and the concerns of the church and our communities. Our nation and the state of Illinois have declared this a day that people should gather for prayer and therefore we are seeking to call the church to join together in prayer in a public venue in order to show His power and love to our city.
The following is what we envision happening on that day but we are also open to assisting the churches that would like to participate to contribute in their own particular ways. That may be in having a gathering place for your church or organization to meet to pray, prayer walking around certain areas of the loop, or other ways that would lend to an atmosphere of prayer and worship.
We see groups of Christians gathering for prayer in small groups around the plaza from about 1 pm until 3:00 pm. This could be interspersed with worship songs led by groups from various churches at different times. We may also enlist leaders to lead in prayer from the stage at certain times during the day as well. We want the city to see the unity of believers as we gather in prayer – and thus to be amazed at God’s love and power.
We will have signs to call people to pray and materials that will have lists of officials for whom to pray. We will also have materials to aid us in explaining to those that would ask for prayer, how to have a personal relationship with Christ.
