2020 Prayer Advance Changes

July 14, 2020


To the past attendees of the Rocky Mountain Men’s Prayer Advance.


The past 4 months have been a great time for us to learn that “all things work together for good to them that love God” Rom 8:28.

It’s been said that “God’s delays are not God’s denials.” There are different ways we can look at the COVID crisis that we are experiencing.  We can look at this time as a great trial or a great blessing. Or we can view it as a great persecution of the church. There are many who believe COVID19 to be a great hoax and will ease up in November after the elections. Who would’ve known six months ago that we would be in the midst of this pandemic (God knows)?


I recently read a testimonial from a pastor of the underground churches in China. He mentioned that through the years the churches have grown greatly through the persecutions they have experienced.  Until now!  He said that this has been the greatest persecution they have ever experienced. When the people in China were told that they were to be “safe at home” and that it was not safe to be together it put the skids on the attendance and growth of the church. This is an unseen persecution.  A tiny virus that has God’s people paralyzed. Like many of our American believers, they are fearful about assembling themselves together (Heb 10:24-25).


I need to give you some tough news: our Rocky Mountain Men’s Prayer Advance that has been scheduled for Sept 10-12th has been cancelled. It is impossible for a group our size to meet the expectations of Larimer County with the social distancing and ten-per-room guidelines.  We reached out to camps in Wyoming (thank you Tim Ricker) and Nebraska. Either they didn’t meet our needs or were under strict guidelines.


Through much prayer, and multitude of counsel from the board of directors we are excited to come up with a new plan.  We will meet on Saturday morning, September 12th, at 8:30 A.M., Grace Baptist Church in Parker for refreshments and fellowship and then start a mini-prayer advance at 9 AM. (10816 S Parker Rd, Parker, CO 80134; gcbparker.org). Harold Vaughan will be here to challenge us and the rest of the time will be spent in prayer.  We will finish around 12:30 (power bars  & water available). 


Let’s pack the place out!  I keep hearing our President and others in our nation’s administration say to us as Christians and conservatives, “Take a stand!” God says  in Proverbs 28:1 “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: But the righteous are bold as a lion.”

The question is being asked, “why don’t good people stand up and take our nation back?!”  This is our way of having an impact on our nation, fellas!  Prayer!  Prayer! Pack Grace Baptist Church out! No standing room!  


God says that He will heal our land if we follow His admonition found in 2 Chron 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”


We will take up an offering to help defray our costs for bringing Harold Vaughan.


We have a whole year, now, to plan for next fall. The dates for the Advance: Sept 9-11, 2021. This gives us plenty of time to work things out in our schedule to be in attendance. We have Les Ollila , Kurt Skelly and Harold Vaughan scheduled to speak to us. Wow!  Sounds like God is putting together an awesome 2021 Prayer Advance in the Rocky Mountains!


If you haven’t signed up we will be announcing a way you can sign up NOW for next year’s RMMPA!  If you have questions please text Pastor Craig Scott (720-988-5097) or Clay Schreiber (303-601-8418) or the other members of the board of directors: Dan Unruh, Ward Smith or James Rice.

  • Reimburse–you want reimbursed for the money you have already paid toward this year’s cancelled Advance

Let’s pray for revival!
