Prayer at the Heart in Tennessee



Prayer at the Heart began in 2021 as a nationwide move of prayer bringing all corners of the US together at the geographical center in Lebanon, Kansas. Thousands of people traveled from their location to form paths of prayer to come together in desperate prayer and agreement at the heart of our nation.

The goal for PATH (Prayer at the Heart) 2022 is to replicate this move in every state, activating local mission teams to ignite prayer right where they are, and forge a path to claim the heart of each state for the love of Jesus.

The unified PATH event in Tennessee will be Sunday, September 25th.


Pray where you are

Every church or prayer group can agree in prayer on September 25th unifying our state with 3 scriptural prayers
Psalm 51 – Prayer of personal repentance
2nd Chronicles 7:14 – Prayer of corporate repentance
Matthew 6 – The Lord’s Prayer
Every great move of God has historically begun with repentant prayer. It is not enough to read these scriptures aloud, but we must pray them, humbling our own hearts to reverse the curses of the sins of our forefathers that have left a foothold for evil to remain in our land.
Specific to Tennessee history:
Repentance for the broken covenants and displacement of the Cherokee people.
Repentance for slavery and the civil war.
Repentance for the prideful religious spirit that has divided believers by our denominations.
Renew and refresh the blessings of Tennessee!
Celebrate the praise and worship that is generated in Tennessee. God inhabits the praises of His people.
Celebrate the protection of life in the womb.
Celebrate the respect for God’s design of male and female, and the marriage covenant of one man and one woman.

Pray at the heart of Tennessee

The geographical heart of Tennessee is Murphreesboro. There is a history of great revival in Murfreesboro, and we come together to ask the Lord to do it again. If you are a person of peace, called to be a part of Gideon’s army, you are invited to come to Murfreesboro and pray and worship on September 25. We will gather at the monument marking the center of Tennessee at 3:00 PM. Then we will move to Gap House of Prayer for prayer and worship ending our evening welcoming the new year on the Jewish calendar at sundown.

There is a lot of pre-prayer, planning and communicating that needs to be done to make this happen. If God is stirring up something in you that resonates with this goal of claiming Tennessee for the Kingdom of Heaven, please contact Fred Blakely 541 9934941 or .

“Whenever God determines to do a great work, He first sets His people to pray” (C. Spurgeon). This reliable principle begs the question: “How does God mobilize his people to heartfelt prayer?” Most importantly, how does God move Christian leaders who shepherd His church to unite in fervent, persistent, biblically focused prayer for the fulfillment of His purposes? By two things mainly: 1) distress over the degradation of the church and the surrounding culture and 2) hope that God will pour out His Spirit on his church and fill it with His fulness until it overflows with transformative impact on society. Many believers are distressed at the current state of things. At the same time, there is much reason to hope for God’s divine intervention in response to passionate, biblically guided prayer.

Believers across America now mourn the debility of the church; its vitality is faltering, its impact fading, its mission neglected, and its devotion to God being undercut by love for this world. Right now we are enduring the largest and fastest religious shift in American history. Its scope is greater than every previous spiritual awakening in our history combined, only in the opposite direction. Christians are being confronted by “spiritual forces of evil” (Eph. 6:12) operating from the heavenly realms that boldly infiltrate every aspect of society, even the church. These dark powers aim to 1) frustrate God’s purpose to bless all peoples on earth through Christ with countless benefits, including righteousness, peace, joy, and justice, and 2)
inflict endless varieties of misery on everyone. When spiritual decline and cultural decay prevail, God’s people rise up to seek the Lord in prayer as the fountain of every blessing, asking him to fill the earth with his glory, pour out His Holy Spirit, inspire his church, and deliver people and cultures from innumerable troubles. Now is the time to pray with desperation for spiritual and cultural renewal, for divine intervention, for the fulfillment of God’s purposes for his church and his creation in Northeast Ohio.

Christian leaders, especially pastors, have a heightened responsibility to press into God with prayer for the church. Biblical precedent shows that gathering church leaders together to engage in heartfelt prayer for the welfare of their community often initiates widespread spiritual and social renewal both in church and society (2 Chron. 7:13-14; 15:8-10; 34:29-32). New Testament accounts show that when Christian leaders unite in prayer, often in response to social and/or spiritual crises, spiritual awakening and gospel advance follow (Acts 1:13-14; 2:1-4; 4:23-31; 13:1-3).

Jesus himself instills expectation of an outpouring of God’s Spirit in response to prayer with this promise: “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:13). Our Father in heaven is especially ready to pour out upon us the blessing we most need and long for, the very Spirit of God who imparts divine life, wisdom, and virtue.

With all this in mind, now is the time for Christian leaders across Northeast Ohio to come together to seek the Lord with biblically grounded, Christ-directed, wholehearted prayer for a God-given spiritual awakening. The trumpet of God is blaring! He is calling us to pray! Join Christian leaders from across our region to humble ourselves, seek the Lord’s face, and be willing to respond through His intervening grace to any changes He calls us to make! (Psalm 110:3)

The Gathering is an extension of the nationwide PATH (Prayer at the Heart) initiative piloted recently in Northeast Ohio. Put The Gathering on your calendar: Sunday, September 24, 6 pm, Calvary Chapel of Cleveland, 709 Brook Park Road, Brooklyn Heights, OH.
