Early Bird Discount for "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" Prayer Summit
If you are the prayer leader, elder, or pastor in your church, this early bird registration is for you. We hope you sign up early to make sure you are there. This Prayer Summit will help you receive training from Professors and Pastors Joseph Kidder, David Jamieson, and Shintell Izquierdo, that will bring vibrancy and more prayer and unity in your church. Register by August 31 for the October 4-6 Prayer Summit and receive a $15 discount off the cost. This includes two nights at Camp MiVoden and 6 meals. Following August 31 the cost is $155 per person, which is still a great price. 

We are praying for every church prayer leader or prayer group leader to be there. We are excited about this special time to "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" and learn how prayer will be instrumental in bringing more people closer to Jesus and how to share this with your church. Go here for more speaker info and to register.

4th Friday
Calling All prayer leaders of all prayer groups and church prayer leaders. Let's pray together Friday July 26 from 7 to 8 p.m. I want to meet each prayer leader and pray with you. It's a great time to share what your church is doing as well. The next 4th Friday will be August 23, 2024. 
Be ready to answer this question: Do you have, or does a prayer warrior you know, have a sermon on prayer to share? Is there someone you know who has been blessed with a message on prayer?

Praying for Pentecost 2025
When I first received an email about Pentecost 2025, I was excited! Here in UCC we have been praying for the Holy Spirit to be poured out powerfully on every man and woman and boy and girl. This emphasis now in the North American Division office is a direct answer to prayer. Let is all pray for their team to effectively share this with all the unions and conferences in the North American Division. And let us be effective in participating! I believe you are all primed to do this.

You may ask, "what are we being asked to do?" Prayer leaders are being asked to cover this program with prayer on Wednesday and Sabbath. There is a topic for each month assigned to a specific union, but I'm recommending we all pray for every topic. You can see a quick view of the Holy Spirit topics: Pentecost Topics.  In other words, let us be intentional and pray for these specific Holy Spirit topics in our prayer groups, prayer meetings, Sabbath Schools, and Sabbath Worship. Please mark these topics on your calendars, your website, or however you wish to do this, to keep your prayer groups focused on this.

Pentecost 2025 was Introduced by Eric Brown (UCC Ministerial Director) at Camp Meeting on Sabbath morning during Sabbath School. The presentation is at 19:00 minutes into this video: 
To immerse yourself into the complete concept go to the North American Division website for Pentecost 2025:  And see their prayer focus page at

It is God's will that we proclaim the Gospel. And it is God's will that we pray for His Holy Spirit. So this program is God's will and Divinely inspired. Let us be in unity with all of our brothers and sisters and pray like we have never prayed before for the Holy Spirit to fall on everyone in UCC and beyond.

The NAD prayer team would like to know how many are committing to pray for Pentecost 2025. Just like the Bible records that Peter spoke to 120 who were praying in the upper room, and that day 3,000 souls were baptized, the NAD would like to know how many will commit to praying. I'm going to ask for that information from you in the next Praying Together News.
This and That!
