Challenges for Prayer

Strongholds of sin remain entrenched – money laundering, drug dealing, violence, gambling and others. The recent arrest in the USA of a major investor in Antigua is wreaking some havoc in the economic and political spheres. Pray that righteous authorities and the prayers of the saints may break down these structures of sin; pray for wisdom and discernment for the government in handling these difficult issues.

     For an additional 2 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
