How Long is 604,800 Seconds?

There are 60 seconds in a minute

There are 3,600 seconds in an hour

There are 86,400 seconds in a day

There are 604,800 seconds in a week

So 604,800 seconds is equal to 7 full days. Now why is that significant? That is significant because our coming prayer challenge for the month of June as part of our Year of Prayer is to see 7 full days of non-stop prayer by our ministry and for our ministry. Of all the prayer challenges we are participating in as a ministry over 2010, this is one of the ones that excites me the most. Imagine it:

7 days

168 hours

10,080 minutes

604,800 seconds
of non-stop prayer by our ministry for our ministry!

WOW! I have never been part of something like this and I can’t wait to see what God will do. Our 7 days will start at 12:00am, Monday, June 7th, and last through 11:59pm, Sunday, June 13th. We will have 10 specific ministry prayer requests that we will be using during these 7 days of non-stop prayer. Beginning May 23rd we will open up a page on our website where people can sign up for a 15-minute slot. If there are four 15-minute slots each hour then that means to fill the entire 7 days we will need to fill 672 slots. Each person who signs up will get a reminder e-mail prior in advance of their time slot which will include the 10 prayer requests.

You can sign up as individuals

You can sign up as couples

You can sign up as a family

You can sign up as a group

You can sign up for one slot

You can sign up for multiple slots.
