” Wait upon the Lord and He will renew your strength… Cast all your cares upon Him and He will lift you up… Draw near to God and He will draw near to you… “These Words of God are a present reality to the CEF Durham Area Chapter. Through your faithful prayers, the Lord is making all things good. Words from our CEF Founder, Rev. Jesse Overholtzer and the actions of our chapter today: “Everything By Prayer” — Nothing accomplished is completed nor successful without prayer.

Purpose & Mission

PrayDurham seeks to cover the streets and strategic sectors of our city with prayer through a collaborative of churches, individuals, and intercessory prayer groups. This site is a venue for encouragement, motivation, and a challenge to the Church at Durham to fulfill the Law of Christ, to bless our city with Godly peace and mercy, to pray and serve with our city — not merely for our city. We follow the teaching of Jesus for engaging our city through Prayer Evangelism.

Prayer Evangelism

Prayer Evangelism is the 1st leap towards spiritual transformation of the marketplace, home, city, etc. Based on Luke 10 and Matthew 16 we follow the Words of Jesus for expressing the Kingdom of God in our city through prayer and service. The 10 Keys of the Kingdom guides how we engage the social, educational, and government sectors of Durham. For the favor of God and to effectively engage your city, a  community, or a local school, an intentional Christian witness and  service, based on Jesus’ teaching to his disciples in Luke 10:2-9, is absolute.
