42-Hour Prayer Event To Start In Kansas Friday

Leaders of a Topeka church plan to pray without ceasing for 42 hours this weekend.

The Topeka House of Prayer will host the event, which begins at 5 p.m. Friday and ends at noon Sunday at the Faith Family Life Centre.

Organizers say the event will focus on praying for Topeka, the state of Kansas and the United States.

The Rev. Mike Shinkle, pastor of Open Way Church and an organizer of the event, said people of all denominations are welcome to the event.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 101 interns from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Mo., will lead worship and prayer.

    praying for 42 hours straight ?
    not sure what to think of that…….

  • BigAndy

    What is wrong with that? We happen to live in a country that groups can openly publicize things like this……and it sure wouldn’t hurt to have our state and country prayed for.

      I support, and would defend to the death, their right to do this. Alas, it is a big waste. Just imagine the good they could do if they were actually doing something. Two hands working are more useful than a thousand hands clasped in prayer.

      It is poison to our children. Please stop poisoning the future generation.

      Also, folding your hands doesn’t do anything. Using your hands does.

    In other news: 42 hours will be wasted beginning at 5 pm this weekend.

    • LibertyOrDeath

      42 multiplied by the number in attendance. 101 interns: that’s 4242 man-hours alone! That’s more hours that many put into their jobs in two years. Imagine the good that could be done! Instead they will be spent begging their imaginary friends to help us. The imaginary friend only helps when he is begged to do so, because he’s either cruel like that, or just doesn’t notice bad things going on.

    Matthew 6:5
    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

      Corporate prayer is a vast source of gossip and nay-saying.
