What we're about

The Burden

Acts 6:4: “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.”

The Apostolic priorities were prayer and the ministry of the Word. It would be fair to say that the saints in North America have given themselves to the ministry of the Word, but few can honestly say they have given themselves to prayer. [Praise the Lord for every blessed exception]. Over the years, many (New Testament patterned assemblies and Bible-believing, Gospel preaching churches) have had conferences to teach the Scriptures and even some conferences where the topic has been prayer. This conference is designed not to talk about prayer but to simply pray.

During the North American Week of Prayer, we are inviting burdened saints from across the continent to come together to seek the face of God for spiritual revival from the apathy and decline that is so evident among us. Each prayer session will be introduced by a short devotional or exhortation on prayer, and then we will get down to the main business of the conference, that of praying.

Issues on our hearts include revival in assemblies, families, and individuals; a renewed zeal for the Gospel; and a general awakening among the lost. We believe New Testament principles without New Testament power is the cause of our weakness.

Please prayerfully consider joining us.

Psalms 85:6: “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”


Voices From History

From the day of Pentecost, there has been not one great spiritual awakening in any land which has not begun in a union of prayer, though only among two or three. And no such outward, upward movement has continued after such prayer meetings have declined. It is in exact proportion to the maintenance of of such joint and believing supplication and intercession that the Word of the Lord in any land or locality has had free course and been glorified.
A.T. Pierson


When God intends great mercy for His people, the first thing He does is to set them a-praying.
Matthew Henry


Early in the Welsh Revival (1904) a Wiltshire evangelist visited the meetings at Ferndale. He stood up and said, “Friends, I have journeyed into Wales with the hope that I may glean the secret of the Welsh Revival.” In an instant Evan Roberts was on his feet, and with an uplifted arm towards the speaker he replied, “My brother, there is no secret! Ask and ye shall receive!!”
From an unpublished account of the Welsh Revival


The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from prayer. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
Samuel Chadwick


Every revival can be traced to a kneeling figure.

Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899) American evangelist


“When Church members fall into gross and scandalous sin, it is time for the Church to awaken and cry to God for a revival of true Christianity. When things take place that give Christianity’s enemies an occasion to speak against Christians. It is time for the Church of God, “What will become of your Great Name?”

Charles Grandison Finney from The Church in Revival by EA Johnson published by Gospel Folio Press


A spiritual lethargy and inertia seem to settle upon us with paralyzing effects.
We always find time for what we want to do.


Apathy is perhaps the major reason why the prayer life of so many professed believers is minimal – just enough to maintain at least in their own eyes, their Christian respectability [horrible phrase!] and clear themselves of the charge of backsliding.

Arthur Wallis, from the book Pray in the Spirit page 31

Event Details

The Week of Prayer will be held at: The Bible Chapel of Shawnee, 12230 W 75th Street, Shawnee KS - 66216

Prayer Format

Much of the conference will be in a corporate setting (everyone together in one room), with men leading in prayer. We envision that some of the afternoon sessions will be in a small group format, in which sisters will have the opportunity to pray together if they wish. We wholeheartedly encourage our sisters to attend this conference! Many of history’s revivals have been profoundly impacted by the prayers of women.
