Reaching Up, Reaching In, Reaching Out

21 Days of Prayer

Join us as we begin the new year by seeking wisdom, insight, and knowledge from God through prayer. We will be having prayer gatherings each evening from January 4 – 8, 2021.

Moving forward

A lot can happen in 21 days. 

In the spring of 2020, we experienced two events that changed our world in just that time span. It was mid-March when our nation’s leaders began to address COVID-19 in our country. Who would have guessed that 21 days later, the economy would tank, businesses would be closed and most of us would be working from home? Or how about two months later when, over a 21-day span, we heard about the death of Ahmaud Arbery and experienced via video the killing of George Floyd? Our nation will never be the same. 

A lot can happen in 21 days as a result of illness and injustice, but even more can happen with righteousness. Think about the 10 days before the first Pentecost, when the disciples were praying and fasting, and then God opened the door for the church to erupt on the scene. They had spent years under the instruction of Jesus, but within days of receiving the Holy Spirit, they began to turn the world upside-down. Their impact ripples into our lives today. 

Every year hundreds of churches and thousands of people engage in Converge’s 21 Days of Prayer. During the 21 days, we ask you to choose to do two things. First, on the days of your choice, take time to replace physical food with spiritual food (fasting). In addition, please read the devotional and ask God to help you live under the instruction of his Word. Then, let the conviction of the Holy Spirit drive you to meaningful action in your life, your family, your community and the world. 

This year’s 21 Days of Prayer will focus on our work of starting and strengthening churches together worldwide. Our prayer is God will lead you to a better understanding of his heart for the world and of his desire to see every Christian help people of all colors, classes and cultures meet, know and follow Jesus.

A lot can happen in 21 days. May God give you the wisdom to know the right thing to do and the courage to do it.
