Let's Cry Out



Join us in Crying Out to our God as a whole church. We may be separated physically by a ban, but we can rally together in prayer. In this season of unprecedented pain and fear for this generation worldwide, let's cry out in faith!

Below is a guide to a small 5 -10 minute prayer time that you can walk through at the head of  each hour.

Pick an hour, or join for all the hours. When it hits the top of the hour, take just a few minutes and come before your king. We have a verse to read, a thanksgiving to lift, and a request to make.

May God get all the glory!
