Pray these words over our cities…

We invite you to pray for these items whenever you have the opportunity to pray. Each day at 10:02 am/pm, we invite you to join a growing group who pause briefly wherever they are to pray for God to call out workers for the harvest in the manner of Luke 10:2 This week join us in praying for the Kingdom of God to be experienced in the city of Vancouver and for the words of this passage to become the focus of every leader in our area.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.Hebrews 12:1-2 NIV
