Challenges for Prayer

The Christian Church has become very nominal, lacking in vitality and vision. The Moravians had a glorious past, but they and all churches need revival. The Catholic Church increases through immigration of Puerto Ricans and through charismatic renewal. Some evangelical groups have grown; the great need is revival.

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