Kansas City Workplace Prayer
Running our leg for our generation
Monthly Prayer Gatherings
of every month
8:00am – 10:00am
Through God's Relay Race I have learned quite a bit about how business and kingdom intersect. God's Relay Race events focus on meeting with God as Marketplace people, sharing fellowship, and getting godly business insight from one another. It's a breath of fresh air!
I enjoy attending God's Relay Race not just for the business aspect of it but because of the people who attend. They’re humble and spirit lead, desiring to advance the Kingdom of God!
Every month I look forward to GRR prayer time. I am consistently blessed by how the Holy Spirit shows up to weave a beautiful tapestry of prayer and worship. Quite frankly, it’s the two most important hours of my month! I highly encourage everyone to attend to see what the Lord has for you in this small investment of time and effort
For five years I’ve attended the monthly GRR meetings. They include a variety of people from different backgrounds. We frequently pray for professional needs as well as personal. We also pray for our city and country. Everyone is encouraged but not obligated to speak an encouraging word, read a passage, or share a story. My wife describes GRR as one of the most meaningful meetings she attends.
I’ve so enjoyed attending GRR every month and seeing how everyone is doing. God’s people truly care, and when I was in a job slump and looking for a new one, the prayers and encouragement I received from others was awesome! The prayers were answered, and I have a wonderful opportunity to serve others in my new job. Don’t miss it, you won’t be disappointed!!
I know God has a calling for me in my workplace, and hearing the prayers being lifted up for all of us in the workplaces of KC fills me with a greater sense of Kingdom purpose. This GRR “Appointment” with Jesus is the most important one on my calendar!
As a new ministry, The Barnabas Group Kansas City has seen firsthand the impact of prayer in our region. GRR plays a key role in mobilizing prayer in the business community. Building on a foundation of marketplace prayer in our city that dates back nearly 100 years, this meeting engages marketplace believers to pray for specific areas in our region. The meetings are inspiring and informative and help us grow in our faith walk.
Making “His Story” history
First Prayers on Missouri Soil
Every relay race has a start and an end. Where did we start? How far have we come?
A Call to Surrender
The Businessmen’s Bible Class rose against a backdrop of crime and corruption as a call for men to surrender to God.
The Power of Small Beginnings
In 1923, 52,121 gathered in Kansas City and marked the marketplace for God.
The photo to the left looks like the starting line for a businessman’s marathon. We began wondering who is still running God’s generational marathon in the Kansas City marketplace?
Businesses Fighting Human Trafficking
How the Businessmen’s Bible Class supported shutting down the red-light district in Kansas City
Revival Brings Service
What does revival have to do with homelessness? Or a Bible study with alcoholism? Godliness always has a ripple effect. Revival leads to action.
We Pray because it Works
In addition to the biblical encouragement to pray together, history also shows us the power of gathering together in prayer.
Our Centennial Celebration
Together we grabbed the baton of the multi-generational Kingdom marathon we call "God's Relay Race".
What about workplace prayer?
Let's continue the legacy of that generation by grabbing the relay race baton extended to us and gathering to PRAY for God to impact our workplaces as well.
Grab the Baton
Since 2019 we have been gathering on the 2nd Saturday of every month to pray for the Kansas City Marketplace
