Uniting people to pray in the Greater Sacramento Region.
January 15 SacPRAYS Newsletter Edition
"The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." James 5:16
Pastors throughout the region have asked that we join in fervent prayer throughout this weekend, to bring healing and unity to the Body of Christ. Here are some of their specific prayer requests:
Lord, what is required of us? To act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God. This is my prayer for our city during this MLK weekend. Amen.
Rev. Dr. Tecoy Porter Sr.
Pastor, Author, Leadership Coach
Please pray that the MLK Celebration will ignite the region to move beyond the issue of racial tension and prompt the faith-based leaders in Sacramento to partner with city officials and organizations to lead the way toward racial reconciliation.
Bayside of South Sacramento
Director of Compassion & Outreach
We pray that with the strength of the Father, the grace of the Son and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the church engages in prophetic demonstration where truth and love triumph over discord and fear.
Rev. Dr. Samuel Rodriguez
Hispanic Evangelical Association
Father...I pray that we will not be colorblind. Help us instead to becolorbeautiful. May we see each man and woman as created beautiful in your image. Thank you for the opportunity to see heaven on earth as we gather today to celebrate you at the MLK experiences this weekend.
William Jessup University
Pray for continued bonding of our City Pastor's relationships through our time together at the MLK Celebration & "March for the Dream." Pray for unprecedented unity and racial reconciliation as well as sensitivity and understanding toward those of other races -- each of us giving grace to the other in what we do not understand because of our own upbringing and paradigms.
The Rock of Roseville
Please continue praying for the ongoing unity in the greater Sacramento region. Jesus is the answer. We are better together. This is a breakthrough moment.
Pastor Don Proctor
City Pastors Fellowship
MLK weekend has been one of the key fixtures that has increasingly drawn
together the diverse communities of the Sacramento Region. Pray that how
Jesus' people serve on Saturday, celebrate on Sunday night and march on
Monday will lift Jesus up, whose model Martin Luther King Jr. followed.

Dr. Ellington W. Porter

Father, we ask for deepening, abiding relationships with Jesus Christ, in whom we find healing, deliverance, identity, freedom, completion and unity. We repent from every other person, device and system we have placed our hope in. Jesus Christ, You alone are worthy!
