People in Prayer at NewLife Gathering

21 Days of Prayer

From the beginning of NewLife Gathering, we have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this collectively as a gathering in August through 21 Days of Prayer and January through 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our gathering, and our world. Jesus said, “My house shall be called a house of prayer.” We hope you’ll consider walking with us as we seek to make the temple of our bodies instruments of prayer over the next 21 days!
