2017 Week of Prayer – May 27th – The Act of Prayer

Ask the Lord to prompt His people, including you, to pray with a new fervency. May God unite us (and Christians from around the world) in the act and heart of prayer. As you look toward tomorrow, another Sunday, ask God to move in a dramatic way in our churches to mobilize His people to be the healthy followers who reach out in the name of Jesus. Pray for Christians who are being persecuted. (Acts 2:42-43)

2017 Week of Prayer – May 26th – The Act of Missions

Pray that our churches will be sending churches. May God move us to the point of releasing the resources (people, money, buildings, talents, etc).

Pray that our churches will be greatly involved in accomplishing the Great Commission and the Command of Jesus in Acts 1:8 by going and making obedient disciples everywhere He sends us. (Acts 2:7-21)
