Maine Prays, commissioned in November of 2017, is inspired by prayer movements all over the globe. We believe prayer to be key in fulfilling the great commission as well as the great commandment. Through an intimate prayer and worship life with Jesus, we seek to fulfill the commandment to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; to exalt Him to the highest place; and “see His kingdom come, His will be done on earth at it is in heaven”. Out of this foundational relationship with Him, we reach out in love to our neighbor.
God is stirring the hearts of His people to pray. Believers from all spheres of society are hearing the prompting of Holy Spirit, joining together, and forming a unified canopy of prayer. This 24/7 prayer cover, stretching across the state of Maine, is devotional, protective, and advancing in nature, contending for the state of Maine and its people. Our unified, worshipful intercession shifts the spiritual atmosphere resulting in revival and renewal of the church, and transformation of society.
These are the values that drive the Maine Prays task force and this 24-7 prayer initiative.
Unity – Jesus prayed that His people would be one as He and Father are one. We unite together in worship and intercession, with one heart, one voice, and one purpose: to see the state of Maine transformed by the power of God.
Humility – We remain humble before God and others, recognizing the value of other people’s place in the Kingdom of God, their talents and skills, and position in Christ.
Honor - We honor our commitment to love our neighbor as ourselves, seek their best interest, and nurture their gifts and callings.
Community – We recognize that we all need each other as the Church of Jesus Christ and we envision an interconnected, interdependent body of Christ in Maine through prayer and service.
We live out our values with prayer that is:
