Challenges for Prayer

Evangelicals hardly existed before 1946, but through the work of World Team, Southern Baptists and AoG, a strong network of churches has sprung up, supplemented by several other recent denominational arrivals. Many evangelical groups practice strict, even legalistic, codes of conduct in order to avoid moral compromise and occult influence. Pray for a greater degree of unity, collaboration and a profound understanding of the freedom to be found in Christ.
