For 2022, the Capitol Prayer Gathering is slated to be a virtual only event. The virtual 2021 event received strong positive feedback on the prayer program format. As a result of COVID-19 concerns during the 2022 event, the BCNM’s Christian Life Committee is continuing this year to offer a virtual event only. The event is available for individuals and churches to join from anywhere in the state. Both legislators and church members from across the state are invited to choose which virtual platform they will attend the event.
The virtual format will be offered through both Zoom and Facebook Live.
Hosting the program will involve 43+ people from varied locations in New Mexico. Fifteen prayer leaders, 15 name readers, four other program personnel and 14 technical crew members will combine their efforts to host the event. Several churches have already indicated that they are using the prayer gathering event for their existing Wednesday evening prayer activities that night.
Registration is necessary for planning and hosting the online event.
The prayer gathering intentionally focuses upon prayer for state and legislative leaders. No keynote personality will speak. Hosts, name readers and prayer leaders will read Scripture and lead in corporate prayer. While we unwaveringly practice and promote biblically founded convictions about many moral issues, in our prayer conversations with God, we ought to intercede for our leaders and state, as well.
Registration will open Jan. 5. Guests and church members may register online (through this page) or by calling Joy Pittman at (505) 924-2311.
The Capitol Prayer Gathering, funded by the Cooperative Program, is planned and offered by the BCNM’s Christian Life Committee.
