give back through 72 hours of prayer

The 72 hour prayer vigil

We ask that you faithfully consider praying for our next Chrysalis Flight by dedicating yourself to this act of agape for one of the 72 hours we will have over our weekend together.

Remember that when Jesus taught His disciples how to pray he asked them to pray for God’s kingdom and to trust in God’s provision for their needs. Jesus also insisted that they persevere in prayer and promised that their prayers would be heard (Luke 11:1-10).

The key to Chrysalis is prayer

Prayer is the chief means of grace during a Chrysalis Flight. Chrysalis is not only a course for learning about the means of living in grace; it is an actual practice of those means of grace and an experience of Christ’s presence among us.

Nothing is more important than having our community pray earnestly before and during our three days together. Each day that unfolds over a Chrysalis weekend will bring new teachings about God’s grace, the witness of team members, and regular occasions for prayer that can foster an openness to God in each of our caterpillars.

Caterpillars will have many chances to draw into prayer by the example that Christ offers us through the presence of the Holy Spirit. Chrysalis involves everyone in experiences of individual prayer, prayer with partners, prayer with groups and even prayer as part of the entire Chrysalis community.

What we ask you to pray for

Please begin to pray for the spirit of God to guide and empower you for your part on our Flight and in our community. Pray for the entire team, its leaders and prayer partners, and please pray for our young people. Give thanks to God for who they are, for what God has done in their lives already, and for what God still plans to do. Finally please pray that our caterpillars are open to the grace and guidance that God wants to give each of them at this time.
