PARK AND PRAY: A Call for Community Prayer



A Call for Community Prayer

  It is time for residents of Columbia and Adair County along with concerned neighbors and friends to come together for prayer. There has been a great deal of concern raised about the safety of some of our local roadways.

Community Prayer

Columbia By-Pass from Highway 55 North to Highway 55 South

Park anywhere along the Columbia Bypass

April 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

Fifteen minutes of united prayer

  Participants may park anywhere along the Columbia Bypass for prayer. There will not be a central location or program. Everyone is encouraged to be extremely mindful of safety by turning on vehicle flashers and pulling completely off of the highway. We do not want to seek to help a situation and create a danger for any person or motorist.   Because PARK AND PRAY participants will not be together in a central location, 92.7 The Wave Radio and 93.5 Wain Radio will assist in the beginning and ending of the prayer time. Each station will play Christian music during the prayer time. Participants may tune in to either station for information and encouragement.   The goal is to have the entire length of the Columbia By-Pass bathed in prayer. Those who cannot attend may join in prayer by tuning into the radio and praying with those who are on location.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone (Psalm 91:9-12). *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          * I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet (Psalm 18:1-9).
