North American AMCF Week of Prayer

A special time to lift our military in prayer

by OCF Home Office

As Officers' Christian Fellowship's part in the prayer campaign of the North American AMCF Week of Prayer, 22-28 JAN 2012, we are asking each OCF fellowship group to forego the normal weekly group agenda for that one day/evening and spend the time in prayer instead.

OCF is a participating member of the Association of Military Christian Fellowships for the North American Region (U.S., Canada, and Caribbean), and the Association for Christian Conferences Teaching and Service (ACCTS) is one of three primary supporting organizations behind AMCF. The Military Christian Fellowships in the armed forces and police of Canada, the U.S., and the Caribbean are playing a key role through prayer, fasting, and personal example. Below are details of the prayer effort, and suggested prayer topics to add to the prayers your group normally offers.


  • Local OCF leaders & groups
  • Chaplains, pastors
  • Para-church ministries
  • Military Christian Fellowships
  • Other groups of believers
