Prayer is essential! It is not our last resort — it is our daily and constant communication with the Lord. Knowing that “the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16), we often encourage people to “pray the news,” and that is certainly easy to do during this global pandemic. We pray for ourselves and our communities. We pray for our nation and the ramifications of an extended crisis. We pray for those who are ill across the globe and ask God to halt the spread and bring healing. We also pray for missionaries as they continue to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in a time of fear and confusion. Thank you for praying! And please consider joining us in a special season of prayer, beginning May 11.
"Prayer isn't just important; it's essential. Prayer is the most underutilized weapon in the Great Commission arsenal. It's the one thing every Christian can do to participate in helping advance the Gospel among the nations."
