Prayer Effort Along Major Highways Begins Sunday


A worldwide prayer initiative that officially begins this Sunday, Oct. 28, is aimed at establishing a holiness movement across cities, regions and entire nations by networking houses of prayer situated near major interstates.

“I-35 Highway of Holiness” is a 35-day prayer initiative of Light the Highway, a new prayer project led by Mike and Cindy Jacobs, founders of the intercessory ministry Generals International.

“2007 makes 40 years since Bible reading was taken out of the schools of America and since the Haight-Ashbury Summer of Love in San Francisco, which loosed every kind of evil sin,” Cindy Jacobs said. “And we just feel that in this generation, we are going to reverse that.”

Since the Light the Highway website ( opened in May, hundreds of churches and thousands of Christians have signed up, agreeing to join forces from numerous locations during the 35-day event.

“I-35 is being used as the model for what other people around the world will be doing with their highways,” Ryan Hennesy, project coordinator for Light the Highway, told Charisma. Prayer leaders in Canada and countries in South America and Europe also will be praying for major national corridors, he said.

Added Jacobs: “This is a virtual tool to network intercessors all over the world. There’s not a virtual [prayer] tool like it anywhere.”
