John 17:21 Prayer Banner
FOR YOUR CHURCH ?
HOW? You cannot purchase one of these prayer banners for your own church;
but just like salvation, it depends only on the grace of God
given for you to receive it.
Fellowship of John 17:21, through the generous donations of
interested fellow-believers and churches, is gifting the
costs of your prayer banner to Christian churches by
applying these three rules:
Your church can only receive a Prayer
Banner as a free gift from other believers given by the
grace of God in their hearts to you. If your
church has received one already, we ask only that you
consider displaying it where Christians gather for worship
as a reminder to make Jesus' prayer in John 17:21 your very
buy a Prayer Banner for your own church, you can only Pay it
Forward to others. If you haven't yet been nominated by
another church to receive one, then tell us so when you
place your order to Pay it
Forward to any church of your choice, and we'll also send a
Prayer Banner of the same type to your church as well, prepaid through the
generosity of our other donors. Unless you tell us
otherwise, we'll send one only to the church you nominate.
choose to participate as a banner donor in this John 17:21
Fellowship Prayer Banner Project, you "Pay it Forward" to the next
Christian church where it will be received as a free gift of
brotherly and sisterly love from other believers. You pay to
give a prayer banner to any other church of your choosing
(or if you like, we will choose one for you).
'Pay it Forward' Idea
for Christian Unity
If it works for fast food (see
N.Y.Times article), why can't it work if we focus here on
providing the real,
spiritual food; food that lasts and truly satisfies (John
When we send the Prayer
Banner, we'll include a written explanation
to the receiver telling how this Prayer Banner ministry works
and directing them to this website, but it's entirely up to
them to contact us if they want to Pay it Forward by
ordering a Prayer Banner to be sent to another church.
won't otherwise contact them or push them to get involved.
Our Prayer Banners are provided at no cost to the receiver,
fully paid in advance by the generosity of our donors,
including shipping and handling (which by the way, normally
takes 2 to 3 weeks.)
We have no desire to
'sell' anything; in fact, it's absolutely critical that this
'Pay it Forward' ministry can only work if each Prayer Banner
is freely given with Jesus' love for all believers coming
from the hearts of the senders:
“34 A new commandment I
give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved
you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all
[men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to
another.” (Joh 13:34-35 AV)
If the church you nominate happens to be inspired by
your gift to continue in blessing others and Pay it Forward
again, it makes it possible for yet another group of
believers down the line to receive a FREE* prayer banner
from them, creating a 'ripple effect' that we pray may go on and on.
You could nominate a
church from your own fellowship of faith to receive a prayer
banner, if you like. That may be where you'd like to get the
movement started first. Or you could nominate a church from a
different denomination than yours; in a faith group you know to
be Christ-centered, but whose non-essential doctrines are not
the same as your own, requiring you "to stretch a little" in
exercising your Christian love, so that the gift might be
even more surprising and unexpected.
When we send the
we'd like to let them know it came from you, or you can
remain anonymous if you really prefer. Either way, we'll let
the receiver know the gift is being freely provided by
believers to believers, with no strings attached, to glorify
our Lord, from your hearts to theirs, in one shared, holy
love for all believers in Jesus.
The Fellowship of

believe on me through their (the apostles) word".
you know it or not, when you became a believer in Jesus as
Lord and Savior, you entered this "fellowship of John

as You Father are in Me and I am in You, may they be (one)
in us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. "

prayer that transcends the centuries, gathering into one all
believers of every time and place, 'from every nation,
tribe, people and language."
Fellowship of John 17:21 is identical to the fellowship of
the redeemed, the saved, the church Jesus bought with His
purpose in using this terminology is to draw the attention
of the people of God to this prayer our Savior prayed that
has been so neglected by so many professing Christians.

prayer their very own. So we look for ways to make Jesus'
prayer an inescapable part of every gathering of believers.
The John 17:21 Prayer Banner project is one initiative we
hope and pray may help bring Jesus' prayer into focus for
thousands of congregations and believers.
your church can play an important part by accepting a FREE*
Prayer Banner, and then "paying-it-forward" by sponsoring a
FREE* Prayer Banner for another congregation. Perhaps you'll
want to sponsor more than one, or make a monthly
contribution of $17:21 to "prime the pump" on a regular
