24 Hour 'Round the Clock Prayer Team

24 Hour ‘Round the Clock Prayer Team

In our meeting times on Wednesday with the Uganda Team...we have been using a Bible study used by the International Mission Board on Impacting Your World. One area that we emphasized was on prayer. Here is an portion from the book... "No church would send out a volunteer team without praying for its members. No believers would dare go to a foreign country and think they could make a difference without praying that God would use them and empower their witness with His Holy Spirit. But prayer is a way the entire church, not just those who go, can be involved in a mission partnership.

The entire congregation should play a role in seeking God's will for overseas involvement. Church members should pray not only for those who go on mission teams - for health, safety and effectiveness - but also for the places the teams go and the people to whom they witness and minister. Continuing prayer for missionaries and local believers will expand the effectiveness of the team's ministry long after the team has returned home."

"The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful" James 5:16


We are in the process of establishing a 'Round The Clock Prayer Team for our upcoming Uganda trip.

If you would like to commit to praying for one hour a day for 1 week, or both weeks, we would be grateful. (Trip is December 28-January 11)

There are 15 spots already committed to. We are in need of at least 9 more people to sign up to fill the additional time slots. Simply email to sign up today!
