In a recent prayer gathering, our team prayed for all of the Christian Reformed churches in our region. We were especially blessed to feel the Spirit moving when we prayed about your outreach ministry. How do you pray for your missional activities as a church?
The Central US regional team sent out an invitation to the churches in the region to share prayers about their church and its mission. Many churches are still dealing with the effects of the pandemic, either with illnesses or with the challenges of ministering to a smaller in-person worship population and a growing online presence.
Here are just a couple of your prayers requests:
“After several new families attended regularly, there was an outbreak of COVID-19 in our church and one person died. We went back online around Thanksgiving and hope to return to in person worship in February.”
“ Prayers that we will not miss the opportunity of more spiritual openness in those of our community who have been through a difficult year.”
“For wisdom and unity for church leaders in navigating precautions as the pandemic evolves.”
On January 20th, our team prayed for each church and were blessed by the focus on prayer and its role in our mission.
