The question has been asked of me…why #PrayForSochi? There’s a lot of pressure to host the Olympics well and I believe Russia has the heart and ability to do it!
As the Winter Olympics begin, God has brought my attention to pray for the competitors, the Russian Government, and the host city of Sochi. It is an incredible rhythm that the world has engaged in where we come together to celebrate our nations in healthy competition in worldwide unity and on peaceful terms! The implications of such an event have tremendous impact on the world. While some may try to use this assembly for negative purposes, I believe this sort of gathering has huge potential for Kingdom movement that would be birthed within the time/place of the Olympics and go home with the competitors as they return to their respective countries. I am inviting you to pray along with me over the next couple of weeks. You can follow my twitter [@erikthien] for the play-by-play action while I be continually tweet prayers under the hashtag for the Olympics:
I found a helpful Prayer Calendar online that will help guide some of the themes from Engage Sochi.
