And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
The proclamation of the Gospel in word and deed is the work of missions. And prayer is the power that wields the weapon of the Word, and the Word is the weapon by which the nations will be brought to faith and obedience. -John Piper

Monthly missions prayer meeting
The “Embrace our Missionaries” prayer meeting is a monthly local and global mission time of prayer. This will include prayer for our world, our nation, our missionaries, our local outreach partners and our church. We meet the last Sunday of each month in the missions office in between services, at approximately 10:20-11:10. All are welcome to join. Please contact Darren Dittmar- firstname.lastname@example.org or Susan Stebler- email@example.com with questions.
As we consider the condition of the world today, how can we not pray? Each of us should make prayer our first response. Let’s turn first to the Lord before complaining or giving in to fear or despair.
