5 minutes + 5 days + 5 weeks = deeper prayer life 2018

As a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, would you like a closer walk with him? Would you like deeper faith and greater trust to deal with life’s twists and turns? Consistent and disciplined prayer is one of the practices of discipleship where these things happen.

You are invited to join Pilgrim friends and others around the community praying 5 days a week (M-F) for five minutes each day. We are calling this the Pilgrim Prayer Challenge. Join us in committing to pray together.

Welcome!

Thank you for signing up for the Pilgrim Prayer Challenge!

Each week, you will receive an email (and a Facebook post) from Pilgrim to encourage you during our 5-week prayer challenge. This will help inspire you toward prayer for the week ahead.

Remember, the prayer challenge is 5 Minutes a day, 5 Days a week (M-F), for 5 Weeks. The promise is you are creating the good habit of a deeper prayer life.

Thank you again for joining Pilgrim’s prayer challenge. May this be a blessed time for you and for our church community.
