"Pray all the time and never give up.” (Luke 18:1)
We believe in prayer. We've witnessed it transform whole communities, and we don't want to neglect praying for neighbourhoods in need during this time. While we may not know where the COVID-19 journey will take us, our prayers can pave the road for God to lead regular followers of Jesus on a journey - to one day "move into the neighbourhood".
During this year's Prayer Journey (PJ), we will rally hundreds of people to bring prayer to high-need neighbourhoods while practicing social distancing.Check out the 3 steps outlined below to learn more about how to participate.
Our movement has seen how regular believers can have a meaningful impact by being the neighbour down the hall, during all seasons of life. Fundraising for a specific project can help further the work of the MoveIn Vision Team. This year, we also have a unique opportunity to raise funds for those hardest hit by the pandemic, in partnership with high-impact organizations serving the unreached, urban poor.

ABOUT THE PRAYER JOURNEY
On June 13, we will walk, run, and cycle, praying as we go. You might say in some ways we are taking the road less traveled. The neighbourhoods we will visit are often seen as unimportant and forgotten by those around them — including the Church. Many who live there are from regions of the world where the gospel is rarely preached. And they typically have fewer resources and support.
Behind the Prayer Journey is a prayer movement called MoveIn. Based on the vision of John 1:14 (“Jesus left heaven and moved in among us” MSG) we mobilize regular Christians with regular jobs to move in to these neighbourhoods where they pray together weekly. They invite God to show them how He is at work and how to join Him. We will pray for the neighbours we see on the journey and those we don’t see; the businesses and shop owners, the schools, the community centres and service providers, and whatever else the Spirit leads us to pray for.
Another reason we journey and pray is because we want to see regular Christians become that neighbour down the hall. We hope that through our prayers, God will draw many to move into the neighbourhood.
For those who are well-acquainted with the movement or are MoveIners themselves, we invite you to join us in tapping into our personal networks to raise funds for the work of the MoveIn Vision Team, or for COVID-19 relief efforts. In fundraising for a specific vision-filled project, you will help us mobilize for the movement across the globe.
