Greetings in Jesus’ Name,

Of all the comments that I received following last year’s 40 Days of Worship initiative, some of the most encouraging were:

“Let’s keep doing this!”
“Can we keep going?”
“Let’s do this again!”

Well, we are set to do it again– on a slightly smaller scale and linked to a growing national vision.

 A National Initiative Comes to Connecticut!

The 10 Days of Prayer initiative has been birthed in a visionary call from the Lord to his church. Every year until the Lord returns, on the ten days from Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur, the Lord is calling his people to unite in worship and in repentance and prayer to see His kingdom come to our needy communities and to speed the Lord’s return to our troubled world. I have watched this movement grow the past few years as more and more cities and states have “signed on” to the vision.

This fall, from September 25-October 4 (marking the 10 Days of Awe on the Jewish calendar), Impact Connecticut is sponsoring 10 Days! of united worship, prayer, and repentance. The flavor of these gatherings will be very similar to last year’s meetings.

We will launch the 10 Days of Prayer! at 7pm at Wellspring on Thursday, September 25th. For the proceeding 8 days, there will be two gatherings per evening (full schedule available here). The final gathering will be held at the First Cathedral in Bloomfield. This final meeting will also be the 2014 expression of the Connecticut United Night of Worship (CTUNOW), featuring a worship team of over 100 worship leaders from churches across the state.

Check out the schedule below and go to our website impactconnecticut.com for more information. I hope to see many of you at these gatherings across our state as we continue to welcome the Lord’s presence in Connecticut through extravagant worship, sincere repentance, and united prayer.
