PRAYER AT THE CHAPEL
In addition to music and worship, entertainment, children’s crafts, free Bibles and more … did you know that volunteers at the Crossroads Chapel are available to pray with anyone who stops by? These prayer volunteers come from many churches all around the Twin Cities and the State of Minnesota. Many prayers are also offered in advance of the fair welcoming the Holy Spirit to move powerfully during this “Great Minnesota Get-Together!”
Hundreds of thousands of people attend the State Fair each year and every one of them has a need for prayer. Most of these needs go unspoken. At the Crossroads Chapel volunteers are available to meet people personally, even if just for a minute or two, hear their prayer requests and offer heartfelt prayers for their needs. Volunteers wear badges that say, “How Can I Pray for You?”
Prayer requests may relate to topics like health, finances, job, marriage, children, faith or guidance for a tough decision. There is no limit. Sometimes fair-goers are seeking peace, the kind that only Jesus can give. That’s why some prayer requests include a desire to commit one’s life to Jesus as Savior and Lord. A free Bible and follow-up resources are made available to everyone who makes such a first-time commitment. Whatever your prayer request may be, know that no prayer is too great or small for God to hear and answer according to His desire to love and bless you.
Volunteers also pray for every street at the Minnesota State Fair by name and “prayer walking” their chosen street at various times throughout the day. We ask for the presence, the power, and the love of Jesus to permeate the grounds of the State Fair leading to a genuine climate of love, peace, and hospitality.
The Crossroads Chapel has a long history of blessing people with prayer. This ministry will become more visible than ever. Let your friends and neighbors know that volunteers at the Crossroads Chapel at the Minnesota State Fair are available to welcome and pray personally with them!
