Welcome to a National Time of Guided Prayer

Every Wednesday, starting on Wednesday January 20th through March 31st, 2021 we will lead a time of guided prayer. We are welcoming a number of friends of the Colson Center to lead us in a devotional on a Proverb and a time of guided prayer. The prayer times begin at 10:30am Eastern Standard Time (EST). We will livestream our time together, inviting you to join us in prayer.

In registering for the National Time of Guided Prayer you will receive two emails each week. Each Tuesday we will email you a short bio of the guest leading our prayer time. You will also receive a website link to join the prayer time on Wednesday through the live stream.

On Thursday you will receive a follow-up email from our time together. This email will include the link to view the prayer time we held on Wednesday. You will also receive a devotional from the prayer time along with links for any resources mentioned in the prayer time. The Thursday emails will include links to full-length prayer times and all past devotionals and mentioned resources as well. Full-length videos and resources will not be posted on this page, but are instead available once registered for the Time of Guided Prayer, available by completing the registration form on this page.


Below you will find the video from the first week in our National Time of Guided Prayer. Highlights from past prayer times are also included below. We hope to see you in our live stream prayer times and to connect with you through our emails as we participate in this time of guided prayer through Proverbs.

The angle of these Prayer Times isn't 'what's happening out there'. The real angle of these prayer times is what's happening in the church.

Right now, we have to do a lot of recalibration. We have to recalibrate who we are in the culture and what it means to ground ourselves in the Truth.
