At a recent gathering from the John 17 movement, Pope Francis said that it’s the devil himself who keeps evangelicals, Catholics, and Christians from other denominations divided, and rejected the notion that it’s heretical to believe that all Christians are one. This is encouraging for us as UniteBoston works to help Christians come together around Jesus at the center!
Last week, on National Bike to Work Day, clergy around the city blessed bicycles for safe journeys around the city of Boston.

On May 7, 2015, all 50 Governors and the President of the United States proclaimed the 64th annual National Day of Prayer as millions of Americans gathered from coast to coast in solemn assembly. It was the single, largest mobilized call to prayer in the history of our nation with more than 43,000 events taking place at courthouse steps, parks, offices, government buildings, churches and homes symbolizing a single prayer – one voice – one cry – for such a time as this.“ In Massachusetts we had over 30 events, and in Boston,we had over 110 people in attendance at the State House and 150-200 people in attendance at Lion of Judah – TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!
It is our desire to partner with ministries and local churches to train and mobilize the Church in effective prayer and we need your help to make that happen. If you are interested in hosting a seminar, or training, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. Please be on the lookout for regional seminars that will take place quarterly and more information on Pray351. You can also be a blessing to our movement by making a contribution that will enable us to travel throughout the state providing the necessary support to the local church by making a donation below!
His Kingdom Come!

This week, Ryan Garza shares a self-produced video about the hope Christ has given him, despite the darkness of circumstances around him. He writes:
On the night of September 9th, 2014 I was doing homework in my room when suddenly I felt inspired to begin writing. I opened a word document and began writing about finding hope in my generation. After living in Boston for about two years now, I have realized how desperate people are for hope. The goal of this video is to spread the hope that I, and so many other people, have in us everyday. I hope this video inspires healing and restoration to all those who see and hear this message.
