Prayer For Nazarene Missions

 

Prayer: Lord, send us near and far to participate in your redemptive mission. May we be known as a people who have and continue to call on the name of the Lord and experience deliverance from all forms of idolatry and praxis of the world, which are inconsistent with the Kingdom of God. May the world see in us, the church, an example of God’s transformational power displayed as we commit to seeking  sinners’  conversion,  the  reclamation  of  backsliders,  and  continuing  to  perfect  holiness  in  our  lives  with  the  impulse  to grow in grace as Christlike disciple.-- Dr. Filimão Chambo, Board of General Superintendents
