Our Commitment to Prayer

Begin the New Year with 24/7 Prayer

Mark your calendars for December 31–January 7, as CrossPoint participates in a time of 24/7 focused prayer. We want to begin the new year with a renewed commitment to trusting and fully following Jesus, and prayer is a foundational part of that commitment. We believe in the power of prayer, whether we’re praying for a next-door neighbor or a relative on the other side of the country or a family on another continent.
When you choose a time slot for praying, you can either pray from home or pray at the church prayer room—either option works. If you’re going to pray from home, please add an asterisk (*) next to your name; this will help us know when the prayer room will be occupied during the week. And whichever preference you choose, please sign up so we know that each of the 168 hours has at least one person praying.

How Has God Used CrossPoint’s 24/7 Prayer Experiences?

At the end of our most recent 24/7 prayer week, we asked people to share stories of what God had done in their life during their hourlong prayer or through that experience. Here are some of their stories.

“This week God showed me through hurt and disappointment he was still there. He didn’t let me down, but the hurt was self-induced from not trusting him to my full capacity and allowing fear to consume me. He has taken that fear away. He is showing me how to trust him more every day.”

“God challenged me in prayer time this week on where my ultimate allegiance lies. I dearly love my country, but he graciously challenged me to be as passionate—no, more passionate—in my citizenship in heaven as I am in my citizenship in this country. I am ultimately a citizen of HEAVEN and I want to bring more brothers and sisters with me.”

“God showed up for me this week when I told my older boys that I was going to go do the hour prayer again and asked if they wanted to come—they both excitedly said yes. I got to spend an hour teaching and praying with them.”

“This week I was reminded that I had stopped trusting God with a situation. When I gave it back to God, I felt a calmness and peace I’d been missing for a while.”

“I was ready to break with the things going on in my life. I didn’t know how I could get everything done and meet everyone’s expectations. Then God changed the expectations without me having to say a word. He removed obstacles and inspired thoughts. Thank you, LORD!”

“God has given me strength this week, to be strong in faith, forgiveness, and compassion.”

“I have never prayed for a full hour before. That hour was a special time...something I will never forget and something I will do again.”

Prayer Resources

These resources were created for our 24/7 prayer initiative earlier this year. You're welcome to use them during times of prayer as an individual, as a family, or in virtual gatherings with friends.
