We gathered on the eve of Martin Luther King Day for a Summit or united prayer and worship. Leaders from across Chicagoland read scripture passages and excerpts from "Letter from Birmingham Jail", and we prayed in response to the powerful truths and words shared.
We had another beautiful time of united prayer on Sep 7th at Torrey Gray Auditorium at the Moody Bible Institute. It was a joy to join with thousands of Chicagoans in crying out to God on behalf of our city and its people.
PRAY CHICAGO YOUTH EDITION WILL "TAKE TO THE STREETS" AS THE SCHOOL YEAR ENDS, THE YOUTH WILL LEAD THE WAY IN AN ATMOSPHERIC SATURATION OF PRAYER
On Saturday, May 21st, 2016, we held our third outdoor Pray Chicago and the very first on a Saturday. It was wonderful to be led in prayer by pastors and leaders from across Chicago, and to worship in prayer in Spanish and English. There was a beautiful sense of unity in our midst, and powerful times of prayer in unison, in small huddles, and a prayer walk, crying out to God on behalf of Chicago.
On January 20th, 2016, we returned to the House of Hope on the South side of Chicago for another city-wide prayer gathering.
We had an incredible time of prayer for Chicago on Sep 17th, 2015 at Philadelphia Romanian Church on the North side. There was a beautiful sense of unity and the sweet presence of God as we prayed and worshipped together - truly a taste of heaven! It was powerful to sing and pray in many languages, and to see such a diverse groups from many neighborhoods, cultures, and churches.
On June 17th, 2015 we held our first outdoor Pray Chicago on the steps of the Garfield Park field-house. This gathering was really special, and included prayer walks from four local schools, food and games for families in the afternoon, and a powerful prayer gathering in the evening under the golden dome.
Our first time at the renown Salem Baptist Church (House of Hope) with Pastor James Meeks. We hosted around 2,000 people from all over the city in the Southside of Chicago to cry out for the needs of our city.
Our time at Daley Plaza gathered people during the lunch hour to be praying for the city. We carried 77 signs representing all of the neighborhoods and asked God to heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). This was the first time we were able to gather in the heart of the city and be a witness to many in the Loop.
The second PrayChicago took place at New Life Community Church Midway in June 2014. Hundreds came out as we cried out for our families, neighborhoods, churches, and schools.
The very first PrayChicago was held at Park Community Church as leaders of our city knew that the first response of all the violence and hardship in our city should be prayer. With about 1,000 people crying out for each area of the city, this set the stage for the development and growth of all other PrayChicago events to come.
