We encourage you, and your congregation, to take part in Johnson County’s Ten Days of Awe, Sept. 6-16.
Some pastors promote citywide prayer events to their congregation and others make sure this email gets to their prayer leaders/team who promote to the pray-ers of the church.
We, at Love KC, hope that your prayer team knows about the invitation because, in most cases, they are looking for opportunities to pray with others. We all know, when our intercessors pray, God moves.
God scheduled festivals and times of corporate observance for His people, knowing that there are times where we need private prayer, and times where we need a united movement of people praying.
Since the time of Moses, Jews, and now Christians, devote these ten days to prayer, repentance, and fasting. At the conclusion, Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, they rejoice that their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
The 10 Days begin on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish Head of the Year, and run through Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement. It’s a natural progression–surrender leads to repentance then turns to victory and joy.
For the last three consecutive years, even during COVID, we’ve had 20+ churches join in Johnson County observe this time by taking a day to host 24/7 prayer at their church or in one of the prayer rooms across the city. We also meet to pray together during these days.
This year we plan to meet at the gathering area between the city offices and the new courthouse, 100 E. Santa Fe, Olathe, KS, 66061, ran or shine, at 6 a.m., Noon, and 6 p.m. for an hour.
We experience God moving in our city in tangible ways through prayer, unity, and worship. As members of the same body we have the ability to affect what happens in the larger body of Christ in our city/county.
We invite you and your church to participate this year.
Kickoff on Sunday night, Sept 5, Labor Day weekend, 6-7 p.m. at the gathering space beside the city offices. We will worship and pray before Rosh Hashanah begins Monday evening at sundown.
Ten days of fasting and 24/7 prayer, Sept. 6-16. Ten churches each choose a day for 24/7 prayer. People pray at the church or in their homes. The churches keep their own list of who is praying and at what time. Some churches may want to add in a worship event and invite others.
Gather for prayer at the City Offices, Sept. 6-16 at 6 a.m., Noon and at 6 p.m. (for one hour). Individuals and/or churches will gather together to pray.
Closing Celebration, Thursday evening, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Prayer, praise, and worship at the gathering space at the City Offices.
A prayer guide for the Ten Days of Awe will soon be available from Kedesh Church.
If your church will take a day of prayer please contact Gary@lovekc.net. We will keep a calendar of which church is praying and when, for others to share.
Thank you again for understanding we are one. What one church does affects the others positively and visa versa in a negative way as well.
Pastors, If you are looking for a simple point of entry, here are a couple of suggestions.
- You could take one day of the ten as a day of 24/7 prayer for your church.
- You could share the 6 a.m., Noon, and 6 p.m. times for prayer at the gathering space beside City Hall and encourage your prayer leaders to participate.
- You could join in the kick-off worship or the closing worship or both as a church
Let’s be a part of a move of God.
