THE PRAYER INITIATIVE: A CALL TO ARMS

Joining together in prayers of thanksgiving and petition for the future of The Oaks and the upcoming building project. 

WHAT IS THE PRAYER INITIATIVE?

Bottom line, The Oaks Prayer Initiative is an opportunity to be transformed as we ask God to move mountains. It's a call to arms, a vigorous rallying of God's people to pray fervently and faithfully for The Oaks. We're asking God to move in and through us as we enter the next chapter of The Oaks story.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

We're so glad you asked! You can join The Oaks Prayer Initiative by joining a prayer team or by leading a prayer team. Prayer teams are groups of seven people who have committed to praying for the upcoming building project, each one on a designated day of the week. 

WANT TO LEAD A PRAYER TEAM?

Your task is essential but simple.

1. Form a team

2. Forward updates

3. Repeat. 

WHY PRAYER?

Our most important work is that which we do upon our knees. When we pray, we couple the powers of heaven to our helplessness, “the powers which can turn water into wine and remove mountains in our own life and in the lives of others. . .the powers which can capture strongholds and make the impossible possible" (O. Hallesby).

As we watch for how God will provide the means to build a new campus for us, let’s make prayer the priority. Let's become a praying people. Whether He makes it possible to build or not is up to Him. Whether we become a people who advance on our knees is entirely up to us.

"That saint who advances on his knees never retreats."

—Jim Elliot
