Challenges for Prayer

Catholic charismatic groups are widespread and have had a significant impact; many wonderful believers have emerged as a result. Both the Alpha Course and the JESUS film have been key parts of this movement. Pray for a deeper and wider move of the Holy Spirit through the more than 65 groups. Pray for wisdom for the leaders to know how to have maximum impact while retaining biblical faithfulness.

     For an additional 6 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
