In early 2019, a group of intercessors boarded a bus and visited four Chicagoland churches. They prayed with and for pastors and congregations, asking God to do mighty things in the city where millions of people don’t yet know Christ.
On Feb. 1, the mobile prayer experience will hit the road again, led by Chicago Metro Baptist Association prayer coordinator Cheryl Dorsey.
2020 marks the sixth year Dorsey and leaders in Chicagoland have gathered for a winter event focused on prayer. Before last year, they had held prayer training sessions at local churches, and even met atop the Willis Tower to pray over Chicago, literally.
The inaugural prayer bus tour included visits to established churches and church plants. Pray-ers heard about each community en route, and prayed specifically that God would work in those places. They also prayed in pairs on the bus for many of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods. Dorsey said this year’s tour plans to stop at four IBSA churches:
-Alpha Baptist Church, Bolingbrook
-Love Fellowship Baptist Church, Romeoville
-Cristo Es Rey, Bolingbrook
-Immanuel Baptist Church, Chicago
Pray-ers from across the state are invited to join the tour. For more information or to sign up, contact the Chicago Metro Baptist Association at (773) 278-4400.
