Area churches to unite for prayer in Federal Way

“Unity in Prayer” service coming to Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center Feb. 13.

Pastors at Northwest Foursquare Church in Federal Way are spearheading an event geared towards unifying people across the region in prayer. All are invited to attend the “Unity in Prayer” service at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13.

On Wednesday, Jan. 2, over 500 people gathered at Northwest Church for a prayer service, to kick off 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting.

Stating the purpose of the 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting, Steve Schell, senior pastor of Northwest Church, shared, “All of us are aware how our current times are defined by much division: our nation, our communities and even our homes. Where this division has caused much destruction, we long to see unity bring restoration. We long to see peace.”

To celebrate the culmination of 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting, the community is invited to attend the Unity in Prayer service on Feb. 13. Participating churches include Grace Church (Federal Way), Northwest Church (Federal Way), The Edge Church (Edgewood), LifeSpring Church (Milton), One Hope Church (Federal Way), Integrity Life Church (Federal Way), International House of Prayer (Federal Way) and others. Worship leaders from area churches will guide attendees in songs of worship, prayer and times of sharing. Senior pastors from participating churches will lead attendees in prayer. An offering will be taken and presented to Mayor Jim Ferrell to meet an area of need within the city of Federal Way.

While events typically held at the FWPAEC charge admission and offer advance tickets, this event will be free and open to the public. Those who wish to join the prayer effort can follow along with the prayer prompts at
