Prayer Partner Project Launches Fall 2023
By Motoe Yamada Foor
Do you pray? How often do you pray? Do you want to grow as a follower of Jesus Christ? Do you want to have someone you can trust and with whom you can share? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, sign up for the Prayer Partner Project! You can register as an individual, or as your church or your church group, such as United Women in Faith, a Bible study group, a craft team, and so forth. You will pick a prayer partner (a friend, co-worker, family member, or neighbor within or outside of the church). You and your prayer partner will decide how often you will pray for one another and how often you will communicate.
UPDATE: The Prayer Partner Project concludes November 28, but we hope you continue to pray after our project ends. We hope you'll consider participating in the Lenten "Read a Chapter a Day" challenge. Check back soon for more details!
So many things are happening in the world, and for a time like this, we must go back to the basics of discipleship. Jesus often prayed.
“And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.” (Matthew 14:23a, NRSV)
The essential spiritual practice of discipleship will bring you closer to Christ through encountering God’s grace in prayer.
The Prayer Partner Project launches on September 15, 2023. In the meantime, you and your partner can start the prayer project at any time. A first instructional email will be sent out at the end of August. Beginning in September, you will get a biweekly Prayer Toolbox email with prayer partner questions/activities, resources such as books, and complimentary webinars on prayer by The Upper Room staff.
