The purpose of the Watchman on the Wall Ministry is to enlist and support prayer warriors who will commit to dedicate one hour each week to pray for the Shadow Mountain Ministries. Our prayer ministry is divided into four "Walls" (North, East, South, and West). Each wall consists of 168 positions, one for each hour of the day, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Each participant is assigned a position that corresponds with a one-hour time slot on one of the walls that fits with their schedule and agrees to pray for the Shadow Mountain Ministries during that hour. At the conclusion of his or her prayer time, each participant calls the prayer warrior assigned to the next hour and "hands off the watch". A person's hour on the "Wall" is spent in the privacy of their home, office, or wherever they choose. There are no meetings or other commitments other than spending one hour weekly praying for the Shadow Mountain Ministries.
Each month the Watchman Alert (link below) is sent to each participant by email or by US Mail. This prayer letter lists current prayer and praise items for the different ministries of the church. Ample information is provided to fill one hour on the "Wall".
