First Friday Prayer

On the first Friday of each Month, we gather in the Prayer Room at Mechanicsburg Brethren in Christ Church (1050 S. York St., Mechanicsburg) to pray. We worship and praise. There are often specific issues we lay before the Lord.
Everyone is welcome. We begin at 7 pm and usually wrap up between 9 and 9:30 pm.​ And we listen to what He has to say, where He wants to lead us. 

Monday Nights

We invite you to join with other passionate people every Monday evening for Exodus Cry’s City in Focus. Every month, Exodus Cry highlights a specific city for prayer where slavery and human trafficking persist. Their goal is to summon an army of intercessors to join with them each week to pray for a breakthrough in these cities. Join Exodus Cry every Monday evening live at 8 pm CST, 9 pm EST, as we pray for our City in Focus. 

 Regional Prayer

Peace Promise began strategically praying at and for truck stops in our area in 2009. Most truck stop owners and managers and the truck drivers they serve are decent, good people. Many walk with God. It is important not to demonize or stereotype all truckers or truck stop owners and managers. That said, there is a documented vulnerability at many truck stops. That vulnerability is the collision of opportunity with lonely, sometimes porn/sex addicted truck drivers, exploitative pimps, and traffickers. 
​Similarly, there has been a proliferation of adult video shops and bookstores as well as “gentlemen’s” clubs. They, too, rely on people who are being exploited whether or not they meet the legal definition of being trafficked. The trafficking and the people being exploited through sex for money is not new by any stretch of the imagination. Much light has been shed on it in the past five years as people are waking up to the plight of prostitution, especially under-aged prostitution, in our country. ​ Media stories about the truth of sexual exploitation are shattering myths and correcting misinformation. 

To that end, we call upon the greatest and most powerful force in all the universe and through all eternity – – God Almighty. We call on Him through our prayers. We have seen a marked increase in media and law enforcement attention when we began to call upon God specifically for our local truck stops. The same formula applies to adult stores and gentlemen’s clubs. The power of prayer brings about needed change.
We would like to inspire prayer groups to “adopt” the truck stops, adult stores, and gentlemen’s clubs in the spirit realm through intentional, organized prayer efforts. We have provided a map of our area to indicate which truck stops, gentlemen’s clubs, and adult stores need to be covered in prayer.
We welcome any opportunity to speak with you about praying at and for your local truck stops, clubs, and adult stores.
