"Tychicus will tell you everything." Ephesians 6:21

NDOP 2014

What a good day of prayer!  My understanding is that there were about 43,000 prayer events that took place across the USA yesterday.  Very cool.

Here are glimpses of my day.

Breakfast with a great group of pastors at City Harvest Church.  Good fellowship and prayer led and directed by five great pastors in Clark County.  We prayed for each other, we prayed for our county, we prayed for our leaders.  A Clark County Commissioner, David Madore, met with us.  We prayed for him, he prayed with us.

After a meeting with the Clark County Prayer Connect team, we drove downtown to participate in the noon-time rally at City Hall.  Not a large group – about 50 – but some great prayer.  We prayed through the prayer which Anne Graham Lotz wrote specifically for that day.  We prayed for our elected officials, including Mayor Leavitt, who was there for the entire time praying with and for us.  We prayed in small groups, responsively, individually, and even some “one-word” prayers.

From there about a dozen of us did a walking prayer tour of downtown Vancouver.  Mark Pellitier – who has actually written the book on Clark Counties spiritual history – told us some great stories which pointed us to prayer.  We prayed at Esther Short park, 10th (Evergreen) and Franklin – the sight of the largest evangelistic effort in Clark County history! – at the soon-to-be-opened Boomerang – where “Generosity Returns” – and also at the amphitheater near the Quay.  Beautiful weather – almost too hot – and some prayers that will make a difference.

There were three evening gatherings in Clark County for the NDOP.  Marilyn and I were part of the Camas event at Calvary Community Church.  With the help of some local pastors and a local council-women, we prayer some great prayer for businesses, schools, first responders, the Church, and the government.

A bit tired this morning, but pleased!

We gathered.  We prayed.  It mattered.

Thank you, Tychicus
