What is the Pray 313 Initiative?
As we all navigate in these unprecedented times, we are aware of God burdening our hearts with an urgency for the Church to lead the way in our congregations and communities. We must unceasingly pray during the Covid-19 pandemic. With so many uncertainties and rising tensions, it is more important than ever to unite as One Church in Michigan. With this united heart and purpose, we ask you to join the Pray 313 Initiative.
Every day, May 4 through May 31, churches from all over our state will pray for 3 minutes at 3:13pm. The 313 area code has been one of the hardest hit in our state. We will pray from 3:13 – 3:16pm, which we find fitting as we all know John 3:16 unifies us as believers.
How Can I Participate?
Set a recurring reminder, alarm clock or calendar event on your phone to pray each day at 3:13 p.m. You can pray on your own, or you can be guided by a daily video. Every day, churches across the state will share a video from a Michigan pastor, guiding us with prayer and scripture.
When your reminder or alarm sounds each day, you can visit Ward Church’s facebook page to view the video for that day. Don’t worry! You can view our facebook page and posted videos with or without a personal facebook account.
Pause, and pray with us as we join others around the entire state.
