The prayers, Scriptures, calls-to-action, and resources in each daily post for 60 Days of Prayer have a special purpose for each of us: to connect us to God and to enrich our prayer life. This time we’ve spent praying as a church family has been incredible, and we’re not even halfway through our 60 Days of Prayer journey!

“Our times of congregational worship in the Edmond Venue are awesome! Lifting my voice and hands to Jesus and doing that with others who love Jesus is one of the highlights of my week.” -T. B.
“God has used Crossings to impact my life through its leadership. The Sunday messages, Wednesday Bible studies and well-led fellowship and service opportunities keep me in his fold. My favorite memory is my 2017 Centered class which truly assisted me in strengthening my walk and continues to do so through my small group. As a single professional woman, Crossings leads me to still waters. I am very humbled to be a part of this amazing flock. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.” -N. B.
“I came to Crossings about 10 years ago and was immediately drawn to the choir and orchestra. Then, I was drawn to the sermons. I discovered for the first time that God was loving. That he loved ME. I lived more than 50 years thinking God was always angry with me, that I would never measure up, that I would never be good enough to go to heaven. I thank God I was invited to Crossings! I call Crossings home, and the loving people here are my church family.” -T. H.
“My very first visit to Crossings featured a Dollar Club story at Crossings Joseph Harp. I cried. I had just finished a year working with the women at Mabel Bassett, and at that moment, I knew that this was where I was going to call home. We were invited to Crossings by our friends. We had both just returned from tours of duty overseas, and it was our first chance to connect again. Almost a year later, my husband and I separated. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately the best for both myself and my daughter. Crossings was there for all of it. From counseling to CareSeries, they carried me through that difficult journey. Looking back, I see how God worked it all. I found a church home, became a part of it, developed a stronger friendship with someone who had only been an acquaintance previously, and came out the other side with grace. My husband and I are friends. We co-parent our daughter as best we can, but she is happy, healthy, and knows how much we love her. But more importantly, she knows how much God loves her. The other day, she noticed I was a little sad and said to me, “Mommy, don’t worry. God has a plan for you, and he will take care of you. You just need to trust him.” It made me cry all the more, but for a different reason. I don’t know where I would be without Crossings, but I know that every day I wake up and write in my planner to live by faith, be a voice of hope, and be known by love.” -E. E.
“I walked into Crossings Edmond broken. The church I had been attending crushed my feelings. I had been through an awful divorce. When I stepped through the doors that Sunday morning, I felt the love of Christ envelope me. It was a feeling I had never felt before in all the places of worship I had attended. God was saying ‘You are home.’” -S. H.
“Nineteen years ago, I walked through the doors of Crossings Community Church. I found myself on the back row, broken, crying, and praying. Little did I know that God would use Crossings to save my life literally as well as figuratively. Like Norma and Roy Townsdin, those were the most important doors I would ever walk through in my entire life. A prodigal son had come home. Marty baptized me as I re-dedicated my life to Christ and began my walk once again with him after being gone for 20 years. I watched my daughters both become children of God and be baptized by Cheri Weaver as she poured into them. Crossings has literally walked with me through every season of life. Divorce, addiction: two areas I would really like to forget, but were real and Crossings saved my life…Today, I continue to grow in my walk with Christ, my relationship with him, as I serving him through my church family in the choir, preparing the orchestra music, leading worship at Living Faith, and attending my Tuesday morning men’s group. I am no longer alone thanks to Crossings Community Church. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you, my family, more than you will ever know!” -P. A.
