Pray Tulsa

Join us as we pray.

Join us as we continue to pray through scripture, intercede for areas of influence in our city, and lift up our world to the God who listens to our prayers.

FAQ for Pray Tulsa Prayer Rooms:
How long is a Prayer Room?
We have designed them to be approximately 30-45 minutes depending on the leader and prayer outline.
How do I sign up for a Prayer Room?
Right now, you can sign up for a Prayer Room by sending us a message/DM through social media (Facebook/Instagram) or by signing up through our “Pray Tulsa” tab on cc.guide. After you sign up or send us a message, we will send you a Zoom link for the prayer room.
Will I have to lead a prayer time if I join a prayer room?
No. Each prayer room will have 1-2 prayer room leaders who are facilitating the time. We encourage interaction through the Zoom chat feature and there may be a time where the prayer room leader asks for others to lead a prayer if they feel comfortable doing so.
What will happen during a prayer room?
The prayer room leader will facilitate several different types of prayer during the 30-45 minutes. This includes praying scripture, prayers of intercession for specific areas, prayers of solitude/meditation, Spirit-directed prayers, etc.
Do I need to sign up for a prayer room each week?
No. We only ask that you sign up the first time you join a prayer room to receive the Prayer Room Zoom link. Once you have a link to a specific prayer room you can use that same Zoom link to join each week without signing up.
Can I share my Prayer Room Zoom link with others?
Yes, we encourage you to share the link with people you know. We ask that you don’t share the Zoom link publicly so that just anybody can enter the prayer room. We want to keep these prayer rooms safe/secure from anybody with ulterior motives.
How can I help the vision of Pray Tulsa move forward?
There are 3 ways you can be a part of moving this vision forward: 1) Join a prayer room and be faithful/consistent to be there each week 2) Invite other friends/family to join you in your prayer room 3) Join our Pray Tulsa team by being a prayer room leader or helping with administration/scheduling (info@citychurchtulsa.com if interested)
What does the future of Pray Tulsa look like?
We will continue to develop our strategy as we move forward. Eventually, we will have a website which will serve as a prayer resource center and central place for the Pray Tulsa movement. Also, once our COVID restrictions have improved, we will implement some physical prayer room locations, while also maintaining our Zoom Prayer Rooms. It is our vision to see Prayer Rooms taking place 20-30 hours a week for our city.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING THIS VISION MOVE FORWARD! I THINK THIS IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT THING WE CAN GIVE OURSELVES TO.

Talk Notes

People of Prayer

11.22.20

 

The problem with prayer:
We have a problem with God.
We have busy lives and restless souls.
We have a cynical heart.
Martin Luther
To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive
without breathing.
A.W. Tozer
The presence of God is the central fact of Christianity. At the heart of
the Christian message is God Himself waiting for his redeemed children
to push into conscious awareness of His presence.
To desire revival… and at the same time to neglect (personal) prayer
and devotion is to wish one way and walk another.
E.M. Bounds
God shapes the world by prayer.
The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil…
No learning can make up for the failure to pray. No earnestness, no
diligence, no study, no gifts will supply its lack.
Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed, but
rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always
revealing some new beauty.
Brother Lawrence
There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than
that of a continual conversation with God.
John Wesley
God does nothing but in answer to prayer.
Charles Finney
Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying
together.
Never do they love one another so well as when they witness
the outpouring of each other’s hearts in prayer.
Henri Nouwen
I am deeply convinced that the necessity of prayer, and to pray
unceasingly, is not as much based on our desire for God as on God’s
desire for us. It is God’s passionate pursuit of us that calls us to prayer.
The real “work” of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice
that says good things about me.
Two things that are required for an effective prayer life:
1. You must realize you are loved and accepted beyond belief
2. You must realize you are absolutely helpless in your own ability
The rhythm of engagement and disengagement is the only
sustainable rhythm for joy, freedom, and fulfilling God’s purposes in
your life.
Mark 1:35
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house
and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Mark 6:45-46
45 Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd.
46 After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray.
Luke 6:12
12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the
night praying to God.

God I look to You

God, I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

God, I look to You, and I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, and You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

And I will love You, Lord my strength
And I will love You, Lord my shield
And I will love You, Lord, my rock
Forever all my days, I will love You, God

Hallelujah our God reigns

PROJECT FULL! Classroom Care Packages for Teachers at Eliot and Sequoyah – We can all agree that the last thing teachers should be worried about is having COVID supplies as schools re-open. We’ll be assembling care packages for their classrooms to help ease the burden.

PROJECT FULL! City Officials – Letters of Encouragement – Political views aside, this might be the most difficult time in recent history to be a decision maker. We want to send notes of encouragement and gift cards to members of our local government.

Positive Sidewalk Chalk – Everyone likes a colorful pick-me-up! We’ll be going to schools, hospitals, and stores around town and creating positive messages with sidewalk chalk.

Random Acts of Kindness – This project is for those who love to put a smile on someone else’s face! From paying for people’s gas, to delivering surprise flowers, to leaving notes of encouragement on people’s windshields, there will be tons of opportunities to spread kindness!

We’ll be putting together thank you baskets and gifts for the 7 ladies who make it all happen.
