Organize Your Own Community Prayer Gathering!

Community Prayer Gathering consists of churches, community public buildings and breakfast restaurants around the county opening up their doors for prayer.

If you choose to organize your own prayer gathering, the Lancaster County National Day of Prayer will…

  • Advertise your location and its start time (can be either Wednesday or Thursday)
  • Provide you with ideas on how to structure your event
  • Give you a prayer outline
  • Help you with suggestions on how to lead people through each prayer section
  • Will offer ideas on how you can incorporate worship if you are able

For more information or to register your event, email Doug Myer Include your name, the name of your church or business. Please detail where the event will be held, the location’s address, your phone number, your email address. If you are able, please share your ideas for the gathering. Doug Myer will be contacting you upon the receipt of your sign up.

Attend One of the Many Community Prayer Gatherings in Lancaster

We invite you to consider attending others in your community to gather believers for a Community Prayer Gathering to pray specifically for your community, its leaders, its schools, its congregations and more. A Community Prayer Gathering can be a great expression of the heart of Jesus in John 17:21 as believers gather together to pray!

2018 Locations will be posted by April 15
