Pray the Way!

The power of prayer in mission

Dec. 6, 2010

As the holidays approach and stress begins to mount, most people find themselves overscheduled, overstuffed and overfull of the nonstop barrage of consumer culture. As we enter this new time of challenge and renewal, Presbyterian World Mission wants to engage in dialogue about the lessons we learn from the mission field, the stories that bring perspective to the bustling American holiday season and how we pray through our challenges at home and abroad. Please join us the discussion about how we pray, what our prayers can do for ourselves and others, and how we learn to Pray the Way.

What is Mission Crossroads?

Mission Crossroads is a web-based wisdom community which facilitates networking among mission participants, aids communication among members of mission-related groups, and provides a forum in which those engaged in mission may share ideas and experiences, both good and bad, so that future mission endeavors can be more effective.
