Networking the networks to mobilize the Body of Christ for Prayer!
“The Capitol Prayer Network is a compilation of Christians praying for our state legislators and those issues that affect Christians. We believe our prayer foundation is what launches everything we do.” Chaplain Dan Hall (Founder of Capitol Prayer Network)
Why? To Displace the Darkness with His Light!
How? “Show Up!” Be “Salt and Light”!
What? We pray Scripture adapted to suit our needs.
Here is an example:
“Now, O LORD my God, you have made Your servant, (Name), (Title) in this place. But he/she is only a little child and does not know how to carry out his/her duties. Your servant, (Name), is (Title) here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. So give your servant a discerning heart to govern Your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of Yours?” The Lord was pleased that we had asked for this. So God said, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourselves, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment for your (Title) in administering justice, I will do what you have asked. I will give your (Title) a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like him/her, nor will there ever be”. (adapted from 1 Kings 3:7-12 NIV)
At CPN we believe one way we can work this strategy is through these Prayer Initiatives the Lord has released to us.
“Prayer for the Government, bringing the light of the Kingdom of God through prayer and praying for our Leaders.”
This is the time we spend praying for our leaders as well as "legislating the Kingdom of God" in prayer for our state and our nation. Government leaders are invited to come, speak to us, and have us pray for them.

The 68th Annual National Day of Prayer was held on May 2nd, 2019. The theme for this year was
“Love One Another” just as I have loved you, taken from John 13:34.
The State Capitol Observance started inside the Rotunda, offering personal prayer, prayer for legislators and celebration of National Day of Prayer themes. The outside observance focused on corporate Worship and Praise, followed by a program which included several speakers. Many of the state legislators were present and were introduced.
