Morning and Evening Prayer 

Because of the response to the Vertical 24-10 Prayer Experience we have kept two prayer zoom rooms open for morning prayer and evening prayer each day. When you enter, if you are along, please leave a prayer in the chat. You might find that you are joined during that time. The rooms are open each morning from 5 to 7 a.m. and each evening from 8 to 10 p.m. You will find a praying community some evenings and sometimes it will be just you. Think of this as a chance to focus your time in prayer, often with others to hold each other up in prayer.

Prayeradigm Shift for Youth
At the end of the Prayeradigm Shift retreat in October of 2021 we left with this challenge: “Pray for God’s Plans.” We know that many of you returned to your churches and have been doing that very thing for almost two years now. We have heard some of the stories of how God is working and we are so grateful to be on this journey together. Here in Spokane, our team has continued to pray for God’s plans for our conference.

Out of those prayers, God put another initiative on our hearts: Prayeradigm Shift for Youth. Youth were a core part of our first Prayeradigm Shift retreat, and there was a group of academy students who returned to their school on fire and just bursting with ideas about how to pray and serve in their community. Many conversations with them planted the seed in our hearts asking what God might want to do on a wider scale with this age group in our schools.

Fast forward nearly two years and that vision has grown into a reality. Prayeradigm Shift for Youth will be happening on February 22-25, 2024, at Camp MiVoden with Pavel Goia. We are partnering with the Upper Columbia Conference Education Department and inviting every academy and junior academy in the North Pacific Union to send a group of youth (grades 9-12) to this event. Would you join us in praying for our youth?

The greatest need we have is prayer. We are looking for people to join us in praying for the youth and schools before, during, and after the retreat as they seek for how God wants to build prayer into their lives and schools. We would love to have you on our team to help provide prayer coverage for every school and student in the NPUC. Would you consider helping financially? UCC is working to provide financial assistance for students who cannot afford to come to the retreat and schools and churches will also be working to provide funds. But we know there will be financial need beyond this. As an example, Amazing Grace Academy in Anchorage, AL wants to send their entire group of 14 students. This would involve plane tickets ($400-$700 each) in addition to the registration cost ($180 per person). We are asking God to provide in a way that no student in any school will be held back from the retreat because of money. If you would like to partner with us either through prayer or financial help, please send us a response email letting us know at

For those partnering with us in prayer, we will be in touch letting you know the specific school and students we would like you to pray for. We would like to have our prayer team mobilized by December 1. For those partnering with us in financial giving, money can be donated by check (either e-check through online giving or mailing a check to UCC). We would love any financial gifts to be received by December 1. Tag your gift "Prayeradigm Shift for Youth. Mailing address: 3715 S. Grove Rd, Spokane WA 99224 We are excited for the plans that God has for this coming year and for how He will work in the lives of our youth through the power of prayer. We look forward to being in touch and sharing more with you about Prayeradigm Shift for Youth.
