Pray for 40 Days for Brookwood

Pray for 40 Days for Brookwood

Will you pray for Brookwood Community Church as we head into our capital campaign? Join us for 40 Days of Prayer starting Tuesday, October 10. Prayer is the lifeblood of our “It’s Time” capital campaign. We believe God has said to us that “It’s Time” to move toward a future home.

Daily prayer requests will be delivered via text message or are available below.

We’re praying that God will make our hearts ready to obey him. Also, we’re asking God to provide the resources we need and make his will abundantly clear. Finally, we are praying that God will use us to make many more followers of his Son, Jesus. Will you join us?
