Connecticut Prays is a part of the America Prays network. We are an inter-denominational, multi-ethnic, Jesus-centered prayer movement covering Butte County, CA in 24/7 prayer.
America is in desperate need of revival and spiritual awakening. Our only hope is prayer. Unified prayer in the upper room preceded the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:14). Will you join us in prayer? Will you stand in the gap for your community?
Our vision is to unite and equip churches in Connecticut in 24/7 prayer for transformation and spiritual awakening.
Our call is to devote ourselves to prayer for our communities and nation. The Early Church’s devotion to prayer brought them to a place of unity and common purpose. Acts 1:14, “These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer.”
Every church in America regardless of their size, location, annual budget, worship style or theology can adopt a day or half day of prayer every month. A monthly day of prayer is not the end game, but it is a simple on-ramp that helps churches develop a culture of prayer.
Churches commit to adopt a monthly day of prayer or half day of prayer and cover those 12 to 24 hours in prayer. Recruit people to pray in 30-60 minute segments from home, work, school or at church. Churches pray the same day of the month (1st, 8th) or day of the week (3rd Wed).
Rev. Sheila Kimball is the CT State Coordinator for the National Day of Prayer. In addition, she has helped mobilize churches to pray 24/7 in Connecticut – up to 2.5 weeks of prayer each month in 2009. She and her husband Don serve on the Executive Board of World Ministry Fellowship, serve as State Directors for CT, RI, and ME, and have established a ministry called “Let the Church Rise” – a ministry to encourage and minister to ministers and the Body of Christ.
Rev. Audrey Church McIntyre has been involved in the Connecticut prayer movement for over 20 years. She’s served in the Connecticut House of Prayer since 1999, first as regional coordinator, then for 4 years as executive director. Over the years, Audrey has led prayer watches, prayer meetings and taught on prayer in several churches across the state. In 2012, Audrey founded House of Good Hope-Hartford House of Prayer in Connecticut’s state capital. The house of prayer hosted Bible Reading Marathons and many concerts of prayer throughout Connecticut. Through her connections with the New England Alliance, Audrey took the role of Connecticut State Coordinator for New England Prays and America Prays in January, 2018, where she serves as co-leader with Rev. Sheila Kimball.
