Prayer At The Heart
Who would have thought 10 years ago that the church would be pressured by a culture where conservative Christians would be considered a threat to our communities and the Bible would not be allowed on some school library shelves? And the question becomes, “What is the strategy of the Lord in directing the Church through these unstable times and bringing back a culture of adhering to the guidelines of life as set forth in the Scriptures?”
There are many gatherings across the state of Oregon this Fall as the Body of Christ seeks to bring back an awareness to the benefits of Biblical world mindsets in the face of great opposition. Prayer at the Heart of Oregon (PATH) is an event that we believe will carry major benefits in not only pushing back the agenda of the nonBiblical worldview, but will greatly enhance the unity of the Body of Christ across all regions of our state. As far as we know, this is the first solemn assembly to pray for the State of Oregon, and it is desperately needed.
Pray at the Heart started in 2021 with thousands of Christians journeying to the geographic center of the Lower 48 (Lebanon, KS), praying for people and asking for our Father's mercy and grace to be poured out on the land. This event was attended by people from all 50 states, while some 12 million watched via livestream. In 2022, a tsunami wave of our Father's presence is building across America as Christians journey to the center of our states, with subsequent journeys to follow in 2023 at the heart of each county and 2024 at the heart of our cities. Some states have already had their PATH event and our PATH gathering is scheduled for October 21-22 at Powell Butte, Oregon.
We are inviting you to join by forming a team to travel to the event, participate in planting stakes at the center of the state on Friday, Oct 21, and share in the gathering with speakers and prayers or livestream at your location on Sat, Oct 22. See more schedule details on prayoregon.org/path, including training for regional prayer teams. We encourage teams from each county to pray and minister on their way to the gathering by visiting various communities along the way - praying at various churches or strategic places like County Court Houses and places of significant spiritual history.
Pray Oregon has taken the lead in organizing the activities and is being supported by many other ministry groups like: National Day of Prayer, International Healing Rooms, the Luis Palau Association, Serving our Neighbors and others.
This is not another conference, but a gathering of God's people to seek our Father's face in prayer, supplications, and petitions, as we ask for His help and mercy in these difficult times.
