Challenges for Prayer

Evangelical growth continues – with numbers more than doubling from 1990 to 2010. The Pentecostal/charismatic churches claim large increases in numbers; the ministries of Brethren, Baptists and many others are effective in their holistic and empowering approach. Pray that the dynamism and ambition of the former groups might be wedded to the hands-on transforming ministry of the latter, so that growth might be in number and in quality. Many are open to the gospel when presented simply and in love.
