Missional Praying

One of the most profound ways of loving others is by holding God’s people in prayer as God works through and with them, regardless of whether they’re aware of her at work in their lives.
Tuesday Evenings 7:00pm – 9:00pm EST
January 16-February 20, 2024

Praying (listening to and conversing with God) is the foundation of living missionally. What does living missionally mean? It starts with leaning into our common mission of sharing the Good News of God’s unconditional love for us as shown through the

incarnated life, death and resurrection of Jesus and moves to discerning and embracing the particular ways God is uniquely calling to each one of us to live that mission in our daily lives. This becomes part of our lives as we love others as God loves us.
