Praying Together as We Seek God's Will for our Church
At Evergreen, we believe that prayer is central to who we are and how we are called to live out our faith.
Prayer changes things. It changes our hearts. It changes our circumstances. It changes the world.
When we pray, we make space in our lives to connect with God - the Almighty, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and our perfect and loving Father. And it is within the context of that relationship that we discover our true identity, our purpose, and our calling as the Church as we seek to represent the Kingdom of God in our world. It is within the context of that relationship that the Spirit empowers us to live on mission - to represent God's light and love in our world.
As we launch into the New Year, we want to make sure that we are staying focused on Christ in all that we do at Evergreen. And this means that as a church family, we need to be deeply rooted in prayer.
On January 31st-Feb 1st, we will be spending 24 hours in intentional, focused prayer as a church family. Join us as we come together to fix our eyes on Christ and seek God's will for our church, our community, and our world.
How to Pray for an Hour
Does the thought of praying for an entire hour seem overwhelming to you?
Don't worry. We have put together a resource to guide you through an hour of prayer. Our focus this year will be the Lords's Prayer. This is a prayer that Jesus taught to his disciples, and a prayer that invites us into a powerful way to connect with God and align ourselves with His calling on our lives.
If you are a parent, why not bring your children into this experience? Teaching our children to talk to God through prayer is an essential to their discipleship process. Below you will find a prayer journal that can help your kids pray the Lord's Prayer.

We would love to hear what God lays on your heart during your prayer time. Visit our prayer wall and feel free to share any Scripture, words of encouragement, or prayer requests that you sense the Spirit leading you to.
Sign up to Participate in 24 Hours of Prayer at Evergreen
Our goal is to have at least one person from our church community praying for every time slot during our 24 Hour Prayer time. The following time slots do not yet have anybody assigned to them.
Help us reach our goal of committing to 24 hours of continuous prayer by signing up for one of the slots below:
Saturday, February 1st:
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
If none of these time slots work for you, don't worry! Go ahead and sign up for another time slot, knowing that you will be praying in unity with somebody else within our church family. We don't just want 24 people to participate in this event. We want our entire church engaged as we take time to intentionally focus on God through prayer - and this means that we will have more than one person praying in each time slot.
