Who's Your One prayer service


A Who’s Your One prayer service can be valuable for the congregation as they develop a burden for lost people around them and specifically their One. Consider setting aside a Sunday morning worship service to dedicate to prayer. Here is a sample outline of the order of the prayer service. You can customize the service to fit your congregation’s needs and schedule.
