Brian Alarid

President of America Prays


“God, don’t take my little girl. Please don’t take her. Please, God!”

2.7 May of 2016, he had no idea God was about to use him to ignite an international prayer movement.

Today, America Prays has mobilized 24/7 prayer in 1,200 churches in 17 states while World Prays has mobilized 24/7 prayer in 10 nations, in addition to tens of thousands of believers, families, businesses, and ministries, all partnered together in 24/7 prayer for global spiritual awakening. But through it all, Brian has learned that while following God’s calling is the most fulfilling purpose there is, it is also the hardest battle. In truth, “Prayer is warfare.”

Join Brian on a journey through the depths of despair to the mountain tops of prayer, where the hard and painful questions are asked, and be inspired to pray and encounter Jesus like never before.
