Highpoint Family,

This Fall, we are coming together in prayer, to see great things happen for the Kingdom of God. Beginning on September 10th through October 1st, we are spending 21 days of prayer together. We will end 21 Days of Prayer with a powerful, worship filled night at Highpoint Church on October 1st at 7:00PM. Our rally cry at Highpoint will be, “Pray First.” In every situation, whether good or bad, we will pray before we act. Many times, people act first and then want God to rescue them from that situation, but prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.

Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough. In order for it to become a part of our daily life, it needs to become something we look forward to doing. I’m convinced that for most people who don’t enjoy prayer, it’s because they have never been taught how to pray. That’s where this simple prayer guide can help. This guide is designed to bring joy into your time with God. When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, you’ll experience the presence of God that will change your life. Once you learn how to pray, prayer will become a part of everyday life. And then… Before the day begins

Before you go to bed
Before you go to work or school
Before you send that text
Before you eat, drive or travel
When bad things happen
When good things happen

In every situation — PRAY FIRST! Prayer changes everything!
