Kentucky Prayer Coalition (KPC)
We think it is important to have a prayer coordinator in each county. Read the guidelines below and email Aprile or Howard Hunt if you are interested.
THEME SCRIPTURE: 1 TIMOTHY 2:1-5
120 County Prayer Initiative
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2. For kings (presidents, governors, mayors, judge exe, etc.), and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 4. Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
Notice, that as we pray for leaders: It is "good and acceptable"
It comes with a blessing-to live peaceably in godliness and honesty
God desires "all men to be SAVED"
SUGGESTIONS FOR COUNTY LEADER
1. Develop relationships with local city and county officials: Judge Executive, Mayor, commissioners, magistrates, judges, etc. and county church leaders and intercessors.
2. Identify pastors/prayer groups who will pray for local officials on a weekly basis.
3. Identify pastors/leaders who will pray with local officials monthly. There may be a group or an individual who will meet regularly to pray with local official/s. This may lead into a community group prayer meeting at city hall and/or courthouse to pray privately or publicly for leaders and their meetings.
4. After groups are established and praying for local officials seek the Lord for a plan to develop prayer for local schools, the corporate church, etc.
5. Work with your district leader for ideas. Forward praise reports, breakthrough, answered prayer, prayer alerts, significant words of knowledge, etc. that the KPC may want to address in prayer for your specific area. You may forward to your district director, Howard (email@example.com) & Aprile (firstname.lastname@example.org or text 859 583 7268)
6. Help your district leader/KPC by passing on names of people you know throughout KY who may be interested in the 120 County Prayer Initiative, etc.

Danville Kentucky native retired Brigadier General Howard Hunt served 34 years in the Kentucky Air National Guard and US Air Force. His career led him to become the highest ranking officer in the Kentucky Air National Guard and the second highest in the entire Kentucky National Guard. During his career he traveled to 45 different nations carrying out US military operations which included humanitarian/disaster relief, diplomatic interest, and combat. In times of natural disasters, General Hunt participated in most of Kentucky's state wide emergency from 1990-2008 in some capacity, and was instrumental in initial development of the National Guard's Seismic and later All-Hazards Response Plan. He has studied Emergency Management at FEMA's Emmittsburg, PA campus.
While serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom he commanded two different combat units. First he commanded the 485th Expeditionary Maintenance Group and led 900 airmen in supporting combat missions during "D-Day" of Iraqi Freedom. His efforts helped US Air Force F-15's suppress Iraqi Air Force responses early in the war while simultaneous managing the war's largest fleet of C-130 "Hercules" transports to move troops and equipment in the fight. Later in his tour of duty he commanded the 379th Expeditionary Maintenance Group in Qatar and oversaw all aircraft maintenance activities of the US Air Forces largest air operations center in Southwest Asia. The 1,500 airmen he commanded produced an incredible 98% wartime air tasking order success rate for 72 different combat aircraft worth over five billion dollars.
General Hunt was one of the most decorated officers in the Kentucky National Guard, receiving the nation's fifth highest military award; the Legion of Merit, plus the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Force and Army Commendation Medal, and 23 other awards and decorations
