There is one prayer that does it all – connects our heart with God, our heart for people, and our mission to the world. It is a Bold Prayer that will literally change everything about how your see your life as you live day to day. This simple prayer says, “God, give me one person to share your love with today.” As we pray this and introduce to the extravagant love of Jesus, their lives are changed forever. Pray For One

The normal trajectory of any community of faith is to begin complicating everything we do. Often we do this in order to stay busy and look mature but end up shallow and immature; all the while we are not focusing on the mission that God gave us to accomplish. God’s mission in this world really is simple. Expertly Complicated

Grace is free but following Jesus will cost you everything. We often try to package this relationship in a nice neat box but it is more like stumbling after somebody than anything. Instead of false discipleship that leads to division and arguments, we must follow Jesus together and that includes a lot of stumbling. The Cost of Free

Praying for one connects people to God, people to people, and people to the mission of Jesus. We approach our world with a new lens that is no longer viewing people according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit of God. One Prayer Does It All

Praying for One unleashes exponential growth in the life of the church as we invest in God’s love. We are simply living on mission to see lives changed by Christ and God is continually working in the hearts of those people. We can be fearful or have faith, it really is our decision. Why Not Double?

The journey to Pray For One is crazy, weird, unpredictable, and just might be God’s will. There is nothing more risky then stepping out in faith with a conversation or invitation but there is nothing more invigorating then seeing Christ work in the hearts of our family and friends. Risky Business

Our decision today is simply a matter of building – who’s kingdom will we build – ours or God’s? Often when our whole life is geared towards building our kingdom, we have more problems, but when we focus on building God’s we have a promise – that we will get all other things as well.
