One Hour Prayer Alliance Mission Statement

The One Hour National prayer alliance is a multi-denominational and multi-cultural prayer group. One Hour is a group of America’s leaders and remnant warriors that are hungry for the Last Days Harvest. They recognize this end time outpouring is coming through passionate prayer for revival.

In 2007, during the West Virginia Tech school shooting Shawn Patrick Williams asked God what could he do? The Holy Spirit said, “Pray.” God put a burning desire to pray on the nation’s college campuses into his heart. He rallied leaders to cover five major campuses across the nation for an hour of strategic prayer. The next year it grew to twenty-five locations and the next two years this prayer event had over one hundred locations. Various additional events were a byproduct from this vision, including a powerful online prayer group. After a three year pause in events God began to burden Shawn Patrick’s heart to pray for our nation through the One Hour Prayer Alliance again.

The One Hour National prayer alliance purposes to stir up an atmosphere of one hour of prayer in the Body of Christ.

“And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” Matthew 26:40

The One Hour National prayer alliance holds one hour prayer outreaches throughout the year on high school and college campus locations and praying one hour during elections. This is done through a multi-location one hour prayer events that happens simultaneous once a year.
