35 Oregon churches start 7 days of prayer & fasting

By Oregon Faith News Note,

A total of 35 churches in Oregon are participating in the local effort calling people to seven days of prayer and fasting for Portland, Oregon and for the nation. Few churches in Oregon as big the ones involved in this project. Pastors from Oregon’s largest churches including New Hope, Beaverton Foursquare, Solid Rock, Imago Dei and also involving the Luis Palau Association are calling for a time of prayer and fasting for the City of Portland. Events will be held between Sunday September 30th to Saturday October 6th. See below of times and locations.
Q&A With Kevin Palau

What is Seven? What is the purpose?
Seven is another great expression of a united Body of Christ coming together to love and serve and express the beauty of the Gospel. In this case, it’s a focus on prayer and fasting: preparing ourselves for greater impact by being sure our posture is one of true love for one another, humility and recognizing that anything good we can possibly do must come from what God is doing among us first.

Practically speaking, it’s six consecutive evenings of united prayer, at a variety of key churches, including Imago Dei. Several dozen of Portland’s most influential churches are working hand in hand and the pastors will help lead each evening together.

When is it?
The united evening prayer times begin Monday evening October 1st at First Baptist downtown (Solid Rock) and continue each consecutive evening at: New Hope, Imago Dei, Beaverton Foursquare, back to First Baptist downtown and finally Saturday morning, 10 a.m. at Waterfront Park.

Who is involved?
Several dozen of the area’s key churches: Solid Rock, Imago Dei Community, Mosaic, Beaverton Foursquare, Door of Hope, Maranatha, Cedar Mill Bible, River West, Grace Chapel, Sonrise, Willamette Christian,
Rolling Hills… I shouldn’t have started as I’m forgetting some!

How did you get involved?

I’m always drawn to anything that expresses love and unity among churches, and prepares us to more effectively demonstrate and express the love of Christ together. Solid Rock began this more than 5 years ago and last year it spread to about 10 churches. This year we decided to expand it further.
How do others get involved?
What do you hope comes from Seven?
I’m expecting that it will strengthen and further the “Gospel Movement” that we see developing here in Portland. Several hundred churches are loving and serving the City together in a way that is truly being noticed by all sorts of folks. We want the church to truly be the church and we’re clearly told that how we love each other as fellow Christ-followers is perhaps the best way to show we love Christ.
