Next month the Denver2011 team will be traveling to Colorado for our second official “Vision Trip”…and we want you to be a part of it by joining our prayer team. Before we leave on January 14, our goal is to have 100 individuals committed to pray for us.
As followers of Jesus we believe that prayer—direct communication with our heavenly Father—is one of the greatest privileges offered us. It is an opportunity to humble ourselves before God and express our utter dependence on Him alone. And this is what we’re striving to be—a humble people dependent upon God.
Project100, therefore, is a call to prayer. We want you to partner with us in prayer as we prepare for and travel to Denver this coming January. So you will know exactly what to be praying for, we’ve got 3 specific issues we hope you’ll lift up on our behalf:
Our first goal for this Vision Trip is to determine a specific location for Denver2011 to plant. With almost 80 distinct neighborhoods within the city of Denver, there are countless areas that we can focus on. We’re considering the people of Denver as a whole and their many different cultures, the spiritual and physical needs of the city, and our own gifts as we make this decision.
Pray that God will provide guidance and wisdom to make this decision clear during our Vision Trip.
Our second goal for this Vision Trip is to link with other churches. While there aren’t many existing churches in urban Denver, we look to those who are present as partners in the gospel. Our desire is to connect with the existing churches, church planters, and missionaries in Denver and establish solid friendships that create a sense of unity and cooperation.
Pray that God will build and grow strong relationships with existing believers in the city so that a local support system may be established for Denver2011.
Our third goal for this Vision Trip is to begin cultivating an ever-growing love for the people and city of Denver. We pray that God will put this love in our hearts so that we can view Denver as He does and joyfully look forward to the day we plant our lives here.
Pray that God will open our eyes and hearts so that we long for the salvation and restoration of Denver and are thrilled about our soon-to-be home.
Please consider committing yourself to prayer on behalf of Denver2011. We know that without God’s blessing our work is useless, so we are asking others to join with us as we seek his favor.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:18
