For the last 7 years we (IHOP-LI:The Ark House of Prayer) have been praying for the regional churches; asking for an increasing revelation of the Glory of our King and His Kingdom for Long Island. Earlier this year we met with a young missionary named Jonathan Friz who is leading a national initiative called “10 Days” that we believe furthers this cause and we are inviting you into this labor of love. The event will take place from Wednesday, September 4th and will run to Saturday, September 14th.
We invite you to share your wisdom and strength to help us call the corporate Church on Long Island into a concerted time to focus our hearts on Jesus. We are not asking for money, nor are we looking to draw you into an overwhelming task of time or energy. What we are envisioning is a small, seedling fast of time and affection for Jesus that we pray will grow in depth as well as relationship in the coming years.
We are looking for 10 different host churches that will take responsibility to lead one night of prayer and worship at their home church/facility. For example, Church “A” would take responsibility for the first night (Wednesday the 4th), Church “B” would take the second (Thursday the 5th) and so on. Your community would only be responsible for one night but are invited to attend any/all of the other nights as well. Ideally, each worship community will invite other churches that they have relationship with to help them and simply join them for that night to adore Jesus and humbly seek His Manifest Presence in worship and prayer.
Would you prayerfully consider joining your strength (and weakness) to ours and take one of those nights? We will help you spread the word and join with you to support your evening. You are free to choose the night that works best for you between the 4th and the 14th (first come first served) and develop/lead the evening in line with your community’s own distinctive approach. A regional website has been created so we can list each participating church and communicate the details for each day to the region. We will create a Long Island sub-page for the main website which is https://10days.net/ and list all of the contact information that you provide.
Currently, these communities have already signed on for the following dates:
Wednesday the 4th...

The blank dates are still open and we welcome your heart and voice!
Please let me know by August 10th if your community would be willing to host an evening. We will gladly sit with you and go over the details in person before or after the 10th in a time and place that works for you and your community. We also offer every resource we have to support your labors. My phone number is 631-662-9705 and my email address is Gworship9@yahoo.com.
