What is Pray Connellsville?
It is the church of the city of Connellsville mobilizing in one day to walk every street and pray for every home, business, and facility in the city; every square inch of Connellsville covered in one mass movement of the body of Christ asking the Father to reveal Himself and His will on earth as it is in heaven. It is the body of Christ using two of its most powerful weapons: love and prayer.
Love and Prayer
Jesus commanded us to love without hypocrisy: to love without a hook, to love without asking for anything in return. He also commanded us to pray; to reach into heaven and release the very will of God on the earth. Imagine what this would look like to heaven if His whole church mobilized in a city, set aside the minor differences that divide us, and unite around the greater strengths that form us: Jesus and His kingdom.
What if we were to mobilize our people to pray? What if we had 84 teams of two or three people that were willing to walk a zone and pray for all the homes in that zone? How would heaven respond? What could we expect if we came together as one to pray? The results may be heavenly.
Why into the streets and pray?
We, as the church, must do more than meet within our four walls. We must do more than ask those who are not part to come to us. We must be willing to do as Jesus did and go to them in the streets.
This is the tough part. We all have our agendas, our events, our stuff. But at some point we must come together and become His bride. We must become one praying over, through, in, and around our city.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Psalm 133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
