100 Days of Prayer

Upward bases its philosophy on the parable of the sower and the seed in Mark, chapter 4. All year we cast seed, the good news of Jesus Christ, and reap the harvest on awards night. Prayer partners are the fertilizer that enriches the ground on which the seed is cast. That is why we should pray without ceasing. We have 100 prayer partners praying for our Upward Basketball program for 100 days, ending on our awards night, which will be Wednesday February 25, 2004; but we would appreciate anyone to participate with us in our 100 days of prayer.
