The City on our Knees initiative comes out of one of Pray Ottawa’s “Prayer Leaders Round Tables” in 2014. Prayer leaders from various congregations saw potential for a week where churches and individuals would unite their hearts to pray “as a city” and “for the city”.
Later, a team began to form to focus on how to bring this endeavour to life. Our heart was not to create one central worship and prayer service, but to invite groups all over the city to collaborate with one or two others in some simple way. We envisioned individuals being able to tap into a central prayer theme chosen for the week, so that despite being spread apart geographically we could come closer figuratively. We were inspired that as people caught on, it would capture the imagination of many.
Since 2016, the third week of January has seen gradual growth of this proactive blanket of prayer seeking the welfare of the city.
Join us Jan. 14-20, 2018 for a week of prayer as we pray, “Lord, Your kingdom come” for our city.
