Challenges for Prayer

1 Bermuda is an earthly paradise, but despite having numerous gospel-preaching churches, it is spiritually impoverished. Pray for revival that brings lifestyles in line with biblical knowledge.

2 The impact of the churches is blunted by lack of unity and common spiritual goals. Pray for a willingness to come together and build bridges for effective ministry in Bermuda and beyond.

3 The world's wealthiest Black-majority territory, but it has little missions involvement. Pray that Bermudans may make a significant impact on world evangelization.
