HOPE (Houses of Prayer Everywhere) Heals
When the New Testament church came together on their knees they moved their world. That's what HOPE Heals is all about. HOPE is an acronym for Houses of Prayer Everywhere. That is how Jesus described His church when He said that His house would be a house of prayer. The North American Division Prayer Ministries wants to see every church and school across our division become a house of prayer. Learn more about Hope Heals.
Join Pray One Million and Witness the Transforming Influence of Prayer
Pray One Million is an opportunity to join other Adventists in praying for the individual(s) whom God lays on your heart. If you haven’t started yet, begin with a minimum of just one minute a day, praying specifically that God would work in this person’s life and claiming a promise for this person. Be willing to be used by God to minister to this person, whatever their current spiritual journey. If you have already started, great! Is there anyone else that could benefit from your consistent prayers?

Want to get more involved in praying? Join our Blue Mountain Academy Prayer Partners Team and pray for a student at Blue Mountain Academy!
Blue Mountain Academy Prayer Patch Partners have encouraged students, revealed God, and made a lasting impression on young people by simply praying regularly, sending a note or card often, and sending a care package occasionally. God has often timed those notes and packages to arrive just at that moment when a student needed a reminder that someone cared.
You can impact the life of a young person. God will use you as you partner with Him to pray for a student and remind them that someone cares through a simple card, short note, or the gift of cookies or other simple treat.
You could be the difference that gives a student hope, courage or a smile on a tough day.
You’ll receive the name of a BMA student.
Send a note, card or care package occasionally.
God will do the rest.
