Vision

Pray to the Lord for [the city], because if it prospers, you too will prosper (Jeremiah 29:7).

This is the biblical writers’ essential call to God’s people for urban prayer – to pray for the peace or shalom of the city (Robert Linthicum, City of God, City of Satan).

To bring together a community of believers who engage in intentional prayer for the shalom of our city, we are hosting the first series of pray and break bread. new york city. In five neighborhoods this year, we will come together to read and meditate on Scripture, pray and walk the streets of our city, and then join together in a community meal to reflect on our experience, celebrate what God is already doing, and look forward to what He will do to restore and bring peace to the city.

Over the course of the year, we will travel to each of the five boroughs of New York City.  These events are open to anyone interested in praying for New York City and enjoying the good food we are fortunate to have here.

Pray to the Lord for [the city], because if it prospers, you too will prosper. (Jeremiah 29:7)

To begin the new academic year together, we will have our first "pray and break bread. NEW YORK CITY" event on September 5, 2012, at 12:00pm.  Rather than coming together physically to learn about, pray for, and celebrate what God is doing in a particular neighborhood or community, we are calling all community members to pray together in spirit - wherever you are in the city: at home, at work or at school! Spend some time meditating on Jeremiah 29:7 and reflect on the specific ways God is calling YOU to be a light and a blessing to those in your context.
