Pray Down at High Noon

news leader.jpgIn Ardmore, OK, off I-35 near the 12th street exit, a billboard is strategically placed on the west side of the road, facing south. The sign proclaims, “Ardmore Prays ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ at High Noon Daily.”

Sponsored by Pastor’s Hope (a citywide pastors’ prayer group), the billboard’s message has become a mission for the senior pastor of First United Methodist Church Ardmore. After hearing Dr. Terry Teykl’s prayer workshop, Jessica Moffatt Seay was impressed by the Holy Spirit to encourage others to begin praying the Lord’s Prayer at high noon.

Dr. Teykl, national prayer teacher and author of 18 prayer-related books, founded “Pray Down at High Noon” with a goal of raising up a million people worldwide who will pray the Lord’s Prayer at noon every day. So far, 800,000 have signed up to participate.

Pastor Seay challenged her congregation to join the prayer revival. Then at a Pastor’s Hope gathering, she invited other churches to participate. The response was overwhelming. Everyone present agreed to take part. She started a Facebook page and ordered 2,500 business cards printed with the Lord’s Prayer to hand out. “It’s gone crazy,” says Pastor Seay.

The roadside advertisement followed when an anonymous person called and offered Pastor’s Hope the use of his billboard. “It’s been a unifying thing in Ardmore,” she adds. “It supersedes theology because the Lord’s Prayer is not controversial.”
