Day 4 and there are still a few printed signs available with the large order arriving Monday. One group of creative residents met outside to make their own signs today! I was told they have potentially 500 signs that can be made from leftover materials. Need more signs? Great, that means the word is spreading!
Start watching for SIGNS! Send in pictures of signs you see around the city, just please no locations or address visible. We will post them on the website. When you see a sign around this city, please pause a moment and offer a prayer for that individual, for their safety, protection and for their walk with their God. Pray that God's name will fill our city. Please share with neighbors, family and friends. I pray all can experience their block, and their neighborhood being blanketed with God's Name and promise. Signs are still available. email or contact us through this website for special arrangements for sign pick-up if needed.

OUR FIRST ORDER OF SIGNS ARE IN!!! Printed signs will be available at 124 South Main Street on the Independence Square Tonight (September 22) between 6:00pm and 7:00pm. If you are not able to pick-up a sign tonight, no worries, the large shipment of 1000 should be available later this week or next week. Handmade signs are looking great and are serving well until the printed signs are available. They carry the same message to God and to our fellowmen. Watch as the signs go up around our city, pray that the prayers and repentance will increase with each sign that is raised. These are exciting times! Please PRAY, SHARE and PRAISE HIM WHO IS MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!
Many of you have suggested ways to organize prayer specifically for our city. Special times or ways to unite in prayer. Matthew 18:20, "Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." We invite you to share your ideas of how as believers we may be able to unite in prayer for our God and for our City in the next 50 days of this endeavor.
More signs are being raised and pictures are coming in. Please send pictures that show your raised signs. Please cut out of the images any indication of location or owner of the signage. These signs are about God and our City, not about any individual, group or organization. As you pass signs in the city lift your prayers of gratitude and thanksgiving for God's mercy in providing us this beautiful opportunity! Praise God the Signs are being planted and raised!
Today is only the beginning! As signs are placed in the ground in our City, may it be even as the beginning of a soft white blanket of snow. With each sign may more of the life of our God flow through the people and this Great City.
We encourage you to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this opportunity with everyone who has ears to hear and a heart to respond. This is a great time to reach out to your neighbors of all faiths. Spread the vision to the Pastors and Faith Leaders of our city, so they can share it with their congregations and groups. For those who do not want to participate, there is no judgment, only continual loving prayers for this city and her people.
