Praying Church Initiatives

My house shall be called a house of prayer. – Matthew 21:13

Prayer is the essential foundation for the ministry of the church. Central to ecclesiology is the development of a culture of expectant prayer. Churches across Arkansas are developing active prayer ministries and partnering in regional prayer movements. Arkansas for Christ strengthens these regional movements and develops resources for churches growing in prayer.


Arkansas for Christ and the CityChurch Network are calling on 100 Pastors and Ministry Leaders to gather together regularly in prayer groups across Central Arkansas and engage their congregations in One Voice events. These prayer groups are designed to deepen interchurch relationships and sustain a regional movement of prayer for revival. Arkansas For Christ and the CityChurch Network provide monthly resources and regional highlights to fuel our groups and churches in prayer.


The Intercessory Prayer Team is a cooperative interchurch group of people who pray at strategic times in strategic places. Presently, we will be coordinating teams of intercessors to cover the Arkansas State Capitol in daily prayer during the 2018 Legislative Session February 12 – March 13. If you are interested in joining this team, please complete the following form.


One Voice unites the regional church quarterly for a night of worship and prayer. Pastors, intercessors, and worship teams combine for a truly remarkable experience. The goal is to unite every church in Central Arkansas in prayer for revival once a quarter. Arkansas For Christ coordinates in partnership with the CityChurch Network. Host churches rotate every quarter with FREE admission.


Central to our vision is the cultivation of the prayer culture within local churches that strengthens every aspect of the community. Arkansas For Christ is developing resources and training and equipping local church prayer rooms.


Imagine an Arkansas where Jesus is exalted at every hour of every day, where churches exchange their divisions for a chance to offer a united prayer to Jesus reaching every corner of the state. Imagine what could happen through such a movement. Great movements of God are always preceded by great movements of prayer. ArkansasPrays is an opportunity for our churches to unite under a statewide vision of united prayer. This is a chance to become a collective “house of prayer” and expand the culture of prayer in our churches. May we believe together in the worth of Christ to be praised, and the importance of prayer to advance His kingdom in Arkansas.
