These Intercessors Birthed a Prayer Movement in Texas; You Can Start One in Your State

Suni Piper-IFA Contributing Writer : Oct 19, 2021  Intercessors For America

"People are praying in unison, using God's Word and it is EFFECTIVE — praying the answer (the Word) and not the problem. Why do I say it's effective? Because it's the Word of God and we KNOW we are praying His will," says Susan Moore ... This ministry represents a perfect example of the Body working together, with no one trying to get credit for themselves — with full awareness that "we are in this together."

A prayer movement with 24-7 prayer coverage in your county can be more than a dream!

Inspired by the Whatcom Story (a prayer canopy "strategy" birthed in Whatcom County, WA), Susan Moore embarked on a mission to bring 24-7 prayer coverage to Brazoria County in Texas — a vision birthed in a pivotal prayer meeting with 80 fellow intercessors in 2016. Today, this "dream" has grown to a prayer movement that involves 40 churches, 11 towns and at times 900 people praying "the same effective prayer" in unity, monthly for their community.

As "1 Church/1 Day" prayer canopy exploded in Brazoria County, fellow-intercessor Rosamond Panzarella told the Lord she would partner with Susan if asked. Fifteen minutes later the phone rang. Today, this powerful duo, along with a team of eight strategic community leaders, builds the platform for God to move mountains in their local community. Every two months, a six-page prayer guide is purposefully crafted for the intercessors in their county. They scour their local news, solicit local, strategic team leaders (in the seven spheres of influence — government, media, arts and entertainment, business, education, religion and family) on their specific needs and then use key prayer points gathered from IFA. While you can pay/donate for a subscription to 1 Church/1 Day through Kingdom League International, Rosamond, a former English teacher, creates their local Prayer Guide. She strategically chooses at least two key verses that speak life over the specific prayer needs. When her work is complete, she uses Google Translate to translate their prayer guides into Spanish for the Spanish-speaking churches that pray under this canopy.

Local churches that partner with "1 Church/1 Day" are asked to find at least six people in their church to pray for one hour each month. During their prayer hours, each church is instructed to pray through the specific needs of their congregation, and only then to move onto the prayer guide. Susan sends an email the week prior with the guide and schedule. Rosamond takes the list of intercessors from her own church and sends text reminders an hour before their designated time. Because of the prayer guide, all intercessors are praying for their local officials by name and are able to tell them so when they see them. Community and unity are being cultivated!

It takes a village, and in Brazoria County, mountains are being moved, ushering in the Father's heart for their community. It began with a stirring in Susan's heart — a former teacher and long-time Christian bookstore owner (37 years). She already knew all the pastors and had built trust with each one. How strategic our God is to bring those with connections — former teachers, counselors, former police chief…to create a Body to intercede on behalf of a greater community. The team decided in May 2016 to move ahead, and sent out their first prayer guide in September 2016.

"People are praying in unison, using God's Word and it is EFFECTIVE — praying the answer (the Word) and not the problem. Why do I say it's effective? Because it's the Word of God and we KNOW we are praying His will,"-Susan Moore

Susan was so excited to share how God is MOVING in Texas as the people take seriously the heart of 2 Chronicles 7:14, "This year on June 16, 2021, our governor, Governor Abbott signed into law that every school building must display the national motto (In God We Trust) in a conspicuous place. We are working on that diligently." They have also been praying fervently for more states to join their own in passing the Heartbeat Law. As they intercede nationally and for their own state, they also pray and INVEST intentionally close to home. "1 Church/1 Day" partners with all 19 of their local schools, with each having at least one partner church. "All meetings are starting with prayer!"

These beautiful ladies are so quick to compliment and lift the other one up. It was such a precious time to listen and hear their hearts — a heart that spoke in unity. This ministry represents a perfect example of the body working together, with no one trying to get credit for themselves — with full awareness that "we are in this together."

While the enemy camp is strategic and organized, we can be more so. Let's pray for more of this intentional, coordinated effort from our knees. We serve the God of the breakthrough, the God of angel armies! As we pray, especially when we pray the WORD in unity, mountains are moved, strongholds are broken and captives are set free!

If you are interested in bringing greater unity to your community with prayer, Susan and Rosamond have been gracious enough to share a sample of their "1 Church/1 Day" Prayer Guide for Brazoria County.
