Challenges for Prayer

The need for godly leadership in the churches is great. Theological training is limited to a very small United Church college and the AoG-run Calvary Bible Institute. Pray for the effectiveness of these institutions in equipping God’s people, as groups such as Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Baha’is and others actively proselytize.

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