Persistence in Prayer 

July 29, 2022

Persistance in Prayer Most of us know enough about the teachings of Jesus to understand the value of persistent prayer. He tells us to ask, seek, knock, and repeat until the door opens (Matt 7:7-8). Anyone who has ever actually tried this, though, may have found it to be a daunting task! No one knows this better than our team at Take the City. We launched the Harvest House of prayer right around the time that the pandemic began. We did not plan the timing of this. It just worked out that way! In this sacred space we have gathered corporately multiple times a day for the past two years with a clear agenda– to minister to the Lord in our worship and to pray for God to move in our city, region, nation, and world. Since its inception, we have learned a lot about persistent prayer, particularly within the context of global crises. Here are some key things we’ve learned. Weekly Appointments with the Lord We’ve heard it said by leaders in the prayer movement, “If you want to pray persistently, get it down on a schedule.” There is just something about getting a date and time down on your calendar that increases your likelihood of actually taking a specific action step. We like to refer to these scheduled times of prayer as appointments with the Lord Himself. We’ve found that by describing it this way, more of our volunteers experience His presence more frequently and their prayer sets are much more enjoyable. It feels less burdensome to know that you have a scheduled meeting with the most...

United in Prayer

June 26, 2019

What is United in Prayer? United in Prayer is an initiative of Take the City which unifies local believers for worship and intercession to prepare the way for lives to be transformed by the love and power of Jesus. Come join us as we intercede for the Chattahoochee Valley! What does the Church need today? “What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.” ― E.M. Bounds, Power Through...

Melissa – YWAM Boston

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
