Week 1 Prayer
Leaders at Resurrection Downtown have been praying for the building campaign since before it began. We have the opportunity to build the first new church building in downtown Kansas City in over 80 years because of God’s might and through the power of prayer. Now, we ask you to join us in prayer for our community as we prepare to make our commitments to the building campaign and to listen for God’s voice leading us to new adventures. We invite you to use this resource as your guide.
As you travel throughout the city this week – to and from work, school, appointments, or leisure activities, consider all the people throughout different areas of our city who do not have a church home. Some are people you know and some are strangers. Imagine them entering into the doors of our new building to experience God’s transformational love.
O God, thank you for the privilege of praying for our city. Strengthen our connection to this community and its people. Show us why you placed us here at this moment in time, and make us servants who show your love and grace to all that we might be your hands, feet, and voice in this place. Amen.

- How have you seen God transforming Kansas City?
- What is your prayer for Kansas City?
Resurrection Downtown is excited to continue building Christian community in the heart of downtown Kansas City. We are committed to making room for more people to worship, serve and grow with us, and to designing the right spaces for serving future generations.
In just seven years, we have seen Resurrection Downtown grow from a collection of individuals into a vibrant and diverse community in downtown Kansas City. God has made seemingly impossible things.
As you travel throughout the city this week – to and from work, school, appointments, or leisure activities, consider all the people throughout different areas of our city who do not have a church home.
Find an old photo of yourself and draw on it a heart of stone. Now find a recent photo of yourself and draw a heart of flesh. Place the two photos next to each other and think about all the change that has happened in your life and thank God for God’s loving enduring presence throughout seasons of change and growth.
