"Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other;
let us really show it by our actions" - 1 John 3:18
Are you ready for a life changing experience?
When was the last time you told someone,
“I’ll keep you in my prayers”
and never actually prayed for them?
(don't feel bad, I've done it too.)
It wasn't intentional, but it just so happened to slip your mind
or you totally forgot about them by the time you got around to pray.
How often do you
pray for someone other than yourself?
(you know, like a family member, friend, significant other or even a stranger!)
Makes you think huh?
THIS IS WHY I CREATED THE PRAYER PROJECT.
To help you experience firsthand the transforming, healing and unifying power of intercession.
Intercession - The act of saying a prayer on behalf of another.
The Prayer Project™ is a 30-Day written prayer challenge that was created to challenge you to push past your normal everyday prayer routine and help you begin praying more focused and specific prayers for others just as you do for yourself.
You may be wondering, "well, why would I want to do that?"
Well... I'm glad you asked! Did you know that committing to pray for an individual is one of the most selfless acts anyone can perform. It says, “I choose to love you. I care for your soul and your well being." It takes any differences that you have with that individual, release any desired control and place it God’s hands. Not only does this selfless act of love benefit the individual that you're praying for, it greatly benefits you!
It strengthens your personal prayer life and your relationship with the Lord.
It softens your heart to anger and hurt by allowing you to release those burdens to God.
It helps your attitude toward people improve.
Intercession helps you to develop a compassionate and unselfish heart. You become less likely to talk about people and their problems behind their backs and more likely to pray for them.
And overall, it is exciting! It allows you to see lives change and God’s hands at work in the lives of others.
THE PRAYER PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO...
WHAT'S BEING SAID ABOUT THE CHALLENGE...
Intercession helps you redirect your focus. Instead of immediate judgment of a person, you will be led to pray for them. And what better way to help someone you love than by taking your concerns for them to the One who created them. It’s an honorable act that is reverenced by God.
"Share each other's troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone in need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a nobody." - Galatians 6:2-3(NLT)
Are You Ready?
(not yet? ok, let's get into the challenge deets.)
I'm challenging you to write a prayer everyday... for ONE person... for 30 days straight.

but no worries, I will guide you through!
AFTER YOU SIGN UP, AS SOON AS THE CHALLENGE BEGINS YOU'LL RECEIVE:
An email every week with a lesson on prayer. (There will be 6 lessons)
In these emails I will cover and discuss in depth the benefits as well as the challenges of praying for others. I will share some of my experiences and stories, and I will share what God says about prayer in His Word. The purpose of the weekly emails is to enlighten you, encourage you, give you a boost when you feel like giving up on the challenge, give you something to "chew on" for the week ahead and provide you with scripture and helpful tips to give you the push you may need during the challenge.
