Prayer is fundamental to everything we do. We depend on it. We can't hope to bring hope and healing to a suffering world without God's help. Please join us, and thousands of churches across the world, in prayer today.

Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude. Don’t forget to pray for us, that God will open doors for telling the mystery of Christ, even while I’m locked up in this jail. Pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to them.

– Colossians 4:2-4
