Pray KC event is tonight, will host Pete Greig of 24-7 Prayer

Pray KC 2020 will hold a special gathering on the evening of Oct. 3 from 7 – 9 p.m. at Colonial Presbyterian Church located at 9500 Wornall Rd. Kansas City, Mo. The theme is “Pray Anywhere – Pray Everywhere.”

Pray KC is the new name for the Citywide Prayer Movement.

Tonight’s special guest is Red Moon Rising author and founder of 24-7 Prayer, Pete Greig.

Gary Schmitz, Director of Pray KC says it’s an invitation to “prioritize God’s presence in prayer personally and collectively in 2020 as we ask for God’s Kingdom to come in any way He wants.”

The evening will include worship and prayer, a look at the new vision for Pray KC 2020, and interview with Greig about his new book, “How to Pray: A Simple Guide for Normal People.”

In a recent newsletter to supporters, Schmitz stated that the leadership team of Citywide prayer has been listening to pastors and people of prayer around the city and nation, noting there seems to be a measurable anticipation that God is going to do something new and wonderful in the coming year 2020.

The organization recently commissioned a new five-member next generation leadership team in the Citywide Prayer Movement.

“These young passionate leaders have deeply impacted us and they have brought fresh wind and creative thinking into my life and our CPM team,” stated Schmitz.  It was though their guidance that the CPM board and leadership team made a decision to change the name of the Citywide Prayer to PRAY KC: A Citywide Prayer Movement.

In early September approximately 140 pastors and leaders from the city gathered for a luncheon to hear a brief history of prayer in KC and the Next Gen team had opportunity to share their heart for 2020 and beyond.

Schmitz recounts that there was an unusual presence of God upon this gathering and prayer and worship was powerful. “This seemed to be the beginning of a turning point for a fresh work of God,” Schmitz said.
