Prayer is where we spend time paying attention to Jesus. Through conversation with Him, we express our worship, repent for those things that grieve the Lord, ask Him for what we need, and yield to listen to what He has to say on everything we’ve brought up.

We like the way Eugene Peterson explains prayer as “the attention that we give to the One who attends to us.”


“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

We are in a season of growth at Citygate and we believe it is important to seek God’s face together. Throughout Scripture, we see God’s people practice prayer not only privately, but also corporately.  This will be a corporate time of prayer, meaning for a specific period of time set by our pastors, we will humble ourselves before God and present our requests to Him as one church family.  A time of corporate prayer is unifying, transforming, and is rewarded by the Father. We can expect God to move in response to our authentic humility.

Here is our corporate prayer focus:

  1. Yourself.  We are asking God to expose our sin and lead us into righteousness.  Acts 3:19 Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…”
  1. Our church family.  We want to make Jesus famous.  We are asking God to make to make us fully devoted followers of Jesus who are changed by Him and glorify Him with our whole being. 2 Cor. 3:18 “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.”
  1. The global Church - We are asking God to revive His church in America and around the world, that she might be fully alive.  Pray that prodigals would return and the church would be strong and multiplying in every corner of the world. Psalm 85:6 “Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?”
  1. The World - We are asking God for a great spiritual awakening.  Pray for the salvation for your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors. Isaiah 45:22 “Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other.”



Set time aside every day to engage and be present with the Lord. Whether it is 5 minutes or an hour, be intentional about setting that time aside. Not only set that time aside, but set all distractions aside as well. We will have opportunities during the 21 days for us to come together in the Sanctuary for prayer and worship. We will also have opportunities for you to engage digitally if you cannot get here in person.



  • Make a Prayer List – Write down prayers needs and with faith believe that God is listening and honors your commitment to see His will be done.
  • Prayer Journal – Journal your feelings, your hardships, and what you hear God saying to you during the 21 Days of Prayer.
