Awaken is a global movement of prayer and fasting focused on equipping and unifying groups of churches to strategically pray for each person in their city, state, and region by name.
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 city 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?
It starts by relationally engaging spiritual leaders and influencers through prayer gatherings and vision meetings in order to catch a shared vision for how prayer transforms a city, state, and region.
Next, we equip people and churches with simple, Biblical, practical resources designed to help the body of Christ collectively pray and fast for every person by name in city, state, or region together.
Finally, we encounter God personally and communally as we passionately seek God on our own each day, and come together collectively for special times of prayer and worship on behalf of our city, state, or region.
NEED PRACTICAL RESOURCES?
We believe simple, practical, Biblical resources play a crucial role in mobilizing people for strategic seasons of prayer and fasting. Below you will find some of the resources we have used to practically mobilize hundreds of churches, and tens of thousands of people to pray for the people of their cities and beyond.
