DALLAS - A city-wide prayer initiative is set for the Greater Dallas Christian community beginning on Sunday, January 20th at 6pm, when leaders from across the Metroplex join together at Parks City Baptist in Dallas for the launch of A Prayed 4 City (AP4C).
In 1988, Dr. Mac Pier established Concerts in Prayer in Greater New York. In the 20 years since its formation, that particular prayer movement has led to a 70 percent drop in the murder rate and a 300 percent growth of the Christian community in Manhattan. It has been his dream of his to see city-wide gospel movements across the nation.
Pastor Jeff Warren, senior pastor at Park Cities Baptist in Dallas, comments. "Our vision is to have churches, agencies and networks who will agree to adopt one day per month to pray through a common prayer guide focusing on salvation, discipleship, community and transformation," he explained "The service will be a celebration bringing together believers from all ethnic, socio-economic and denominational backgrounds, united in prayer and seeking God's guidance. I believe this will be an historic event for the Greater Dallas Christian community. We hope you will come out to join us as we call out to God to move mightily."
Rebecca Walls, executive director of Unite the Church, states "We need God's guidance and power as we seek to tackle these issues together, God is bringing the Church back together in unity for the benefit of our cities. Only when individual Christians transform their companies, organizations, schools and neighborhoods with love, justice, mercy, and self sacrifice will our communities be transformed to fulfill the purposes of which they were intended."
