A movement of churches covering New Mexico in 24/7 prayer

Our focus

OUR VISION

Our vision is to equip and unite churches in New Mexico in 24/7 prayer for a national spiritual awakening.

THE CALL

Our call is to devote ourselves to unceasing prayer for our communities and our state. The Early Church was united in prayer, and a unified church is the most credible witness to the world that Jesus is Lord. “These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer.” —Acts 1:14

THE IDEA

Every church in New Mexico regardless of their size, location, annual budget, worship style or theology can adopt a day or half day of prayer every month. A monthly day of prayer is not the end game, but it is a simple on-ramp that helps churches develop a culture of prayer.

THE COMMITMENT

Churches adopt a monthly day of prayer or half day of prayer and cover those 12-24 hours in prayer. Recruit people to pray in 30-60 minute segments from home, work, school or at church. Churches pray the same day of the month (the 1st, etc.) or day of the week (the 3rd Wed., etc,).

ABOUT US

Pray without ceasing. Transform our state.

New Mexico Prays is a part of the America Prays network. We are a cross-denominational, multi-ethnic, Jesus-centered prayer movement. We have over 90 churches in 26 cities covering New Mexico in 24/7 prayer from the Assemblies of God, Calvary Chapel, Church of God (Anderson, IN), Church of God (Cleveland, TN) Messianic Jews, Catholic, Presbyterian, Christian Reformed, Church of God in Christ (COGIC), Full Gospel Baptist, Victory Outreach, Church of Christ, Vineyard, Ministers Fellowship International (MFI), Southern Baptist, and non-denominational. New Mexico is in desperate need of revival and transformation. Our only hope is prayer. Unified prayer in the upper room preceded the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:14). Will you join us in prayer? Will you stand in the gap for our state?
