All are free to establish additional venues such as conference calls, or city-wide or county-wide services and gatherings. The Season of Prayer will begin on 2/7/14, inconnection with the numerals of 2 Chronicles 7:14, and will conclude when state water officialsdeclare the drought has ended

This page contains key components of Confession and Petition to be used by members of thiscoalition as we agree in this Season of Prayer. Leaders may think of these points like the bones of a skeleton, adding muscle, tissue, and sinew where each feels led, needful, or appropriate. (Thereare seven points of Confession and seven points of Petition so some may choose to use a pair for each day of the week.)

Key Scriptures ~
"You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?" declares the LORD Almighty. "Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you isbusy with his own house. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and theearth its crops. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine,the oil and whatever the ground produces, on men and cattle, and on the labor of your hands." Haggai 1:9-11The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you,not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.Second Peter 3:9
Confession Points ~
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father isnot in him. For everything in the world — the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and theboasting of what he has and does — comes not from the Father but from the world. First John 2:15-17
God in Jesus Christ, we present ourselves before you as sinful people. We who are called by your name confess our sins: ~ We confess our love of the world over our love for you, our independent spirit, our arrogance, andour intentional abandonment of your reign in our lives.
