Immeasurably More Prayer: 24 Hour Vigil


Prayer VigilWe want to invite you to participate with us – either locally or from afar – in a 24-hour prayer vigil beginning at 9:00 a.m. October 31. We will finish at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 1. The Northstar ministry center will be open during that time for those who want to pray locally. You can also pray in your home or meet with friends/family somewhere. We will be providing prayer guides that will include an opportunity for your own personal prayer renewal and also to guide you as you pray for Northstar and the Immeasurably More campaign.

Our intent and purpose has been to help people find all their contentment in Christ. We wanted to focus on our relationship with Jesus before we made commitments to the Immeasurably More campaign in the conviction that contentment should fuel commitment. What we give and commit to the Lord should proceed from hearts of gratitude and love, not of compulsion or guilt.

On October 25, we will celebrate Commitment Sunday, asking that Northstar members, attenders and alumni begin turning in their Commitment Cards. On November 8, we will have a Celebration Sunday, to rejoice over how the people of God have responded – both the

A prayer “vigil” indicates a time of vigilance, wakefulness, a watch. It was originally kept on the night before a religious feast with prayer or other devotions.

This Prayer Vigil is an act of faith for our entire congregation, a time for our church to come before God to acknowledge that we are the body of Christ, and to ask for God’s guidance, provision and presence.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
