It can become easy to forget just how powerful prayer really is and its ability to (literally) change our lives. And that's why we're here: To equip our generation with the resources and tools necessary to embrace their own authentic communication and relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ, and to strive to be our best selves in the process.

Spread Love. Spread Prayer. Change the World.


Prayer is one of the best ways to communicate with God, but overtime it has become less and less of a priority or even a factor in our lives. We want to change that. We want to remind the world that prayer still works and that they matter to God.


prayer and hope for all.



When it comes to Ironic t-shirts. My game is pretty strong. Taylor Swift, Elton John, Clay Aiken, Cher, Dad Bod, Unicorns, Bieber. I have em all. They get looks, laughs and often start up conversations. They're great but I've changed my style a bit. Now I buy ones that represent a new me, through Jesus.
My newest shirt is my favorite. On the front it says "Free Prayer" in big bold letters. Underneath that, it says "it's cool just ask" Sweet right?
So here I am waiting in the drive thru, proudly wearing my new shirt, blasting some praise and worship music and feeling pretty "Holy". Then out of no where this guy looks me in the face and floors it to cut infront of me. So I did what anyone wearing a Jesus shirt and listening to praise and worship would do, I got 1 inch from his bumper and fumed. Wait, that's not right! After the reality of my actions set in. I felt like the Pharisees that Jesus spoke against when he said "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you Hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self indulgence" Hypocrite?? Did Jesus just call me a hypocrite? Yes he did and he was absolutely right. My outside represented him but my actions did not. I was ashamed, embarrassed and humbled.
Never get to comfortable with where you are. Always be on guard, the enemy seeks to trip you up anyway he can. I can wear all the Jesus shirts I want, but if I'm not wearing the armor of God. I'm going into battle naked!
Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
Matthew 23:26 NIV


The other day, I wore my shirt to the gym to workout in. Last night I was at the gym again and an older gentleman came up to me and told me that I was an inspiration for him the other day. And I was a little confused thinking, "He can't be talking about my workouts because my workouts aren't that strong." But he told me that he was at wits end the other night and when he saw me in my pray hoodie he knew what he needed to do and that was the push that he needed. To pray.

owner and founder of The Prayer Movement, and I'm so glad you decided to stop by our website! Throughout my journey with God, I've grown to realize that prayer is one of the most precious experiences anyone can ever have. Not only does it bring us closer to God, but it connects us together in an unexplainable way! My goal is to share that with the world and remind others that prayer still works. If you'd like to hear more about my story and how things got started, just click here.


Thanks again for visiting our site, and I pray that you'll be blessed by it. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'd love to hear from you.

There are seasons in our lives when it seems like God speaks so clearly to us, and every prayer from our heart is answered. But then, there comes a time when our Father seems just a little bit too silent. We read that God never leaves us nor forsakes us, but what do we...
