One Church - One Day provides a simple way for churches to pray together for our community in strategic and relevant ways. Each church takes one day every month to pray for 24 hours. This creates a church-led, year round, strategic prayer covering for our community. In other words, that's prayer on behalf of our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year!
Together Seek the Lord
24 HOURS A DAY

POLICE & FIRE,
AND THE CHURCH.
There are 42 churches covering 31 days of the month with prayer! And there's still room on the calendar for new churches to join in. If you're interested in participating as a church, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Churches pray for their own congregation and from a Community Prayer Guide. The Community Prayer Guide features 10 strategic sectors of our society: Education, Government, Business, Healthcare, Family, Arts, Media, Sports, Police & Fire, and the Church. These areas shape our the culture of our community. By praying for God's will to be done in these areas, we invite the Lord to transform our entire community. Believing leaders who lead in these sectors meet monthly to collaborate on relevant ways to pray. Those specific requests are then distributed to the hundreds of people praying in the churches, and they provide a basis to track measurable answers to prayer and community-wide transformation.

Our community is just one of many communities who have endeavored to pray with the help of the One Church - One Day model, developed by Tim Taylor (click here for his website). All over the nation and world, leaders have applied these principles to enable churches to pray together. His resources and input have been essential for the launch of One Church - One Day in our area, along with our partnership with a team from Bellingham, Washington's Light of the World Prayer Center. We are grateful for these friendships who've helped us forge the way!
One Church - One Day Launch | May 31st, 2015
One Church – One Day is still in its beginning stages. We began with a "soft start" in February of 2015, and officially launched by dedicating the new season of prayer to the Lord in May during a Community-Wide Worship Gathering. The evening was hosted at Grace Community Fellowship, and we had a packed house. People, young and old, from the diverse group of churches participating in One Church – One Day came together to exalt Jesus, pray for our community, and present ourselves to God as we seek to pray continuously for our community together. The night was full of joy, anticipation for what’s ahead, and love for one another.
Following the launch, an unusual thunderstorm visited our community. One could say it was it was the Lord's "Thundering Agreement" with our commitment to pray in this new way. Click here for the story and documentation.
