Reflection – 2019 Arkansas Prayer Summit
~Harry Li – Pastor – Mosaic Church in Little Rock, AR.
The 2019 Prayer Summit marked the 16th Arkansas Prayer Summit in a row that I’ve attended since discovering it back in February of 2004. Each has been like one of my children; special and unique in its own way. I would not have made it through 16.5 years of urban ministry were it not for the encouragement that I’ve received from both the power of prayer and the deep fellowship I’ve experienced at these summits.
Particularly inspiring and noteworthy this year were our guest pastors, Trey Kent and Brian Alarid, from Austin, Texas and Albuquerque, New Mexico, respectively. Together, this dynamic, prayerful duo painted a compelling vision of concentrated, collective prayer for our city. Hopefully, if you were present, you were challenged to be a part of a collective effort to pray for Arkansas. I was moved and hope that we as the Church of the City will agree to cover our cities 24/7 in prayer. If you are interested, please visit arkansasprays.org to see this simple, yet effective plan and how your church or ministry can be involved by covering one day per month in prayer for Central Arkansas.
I so love the body of Christ in Central Arkansas and I consider it one of my greatest joys to serve along side some of the most amazing, prayerful shepherds I know. Let’s keep pressing on for unity and more prayer for our city, especially during these tumultuous times!
