Join the Prayer Community for the United Methodist Church
This prayer movement serves as a response to the Council of Bishops initiative for Praying Our Way Forward. Together, let’s be in a posture of prayer for the church, where we are all praying for God’s leadership to guide us effectively in fulfilling the mission of the church. We invite you – clergy, laity, congregations, and small groups across the denomination to pray for God’s guidance.
In prayer, we can be one in Christ.
In recent months, the bishops have committed to pray daily for the work of the Commission on the Way Forward. It’s time now to launch a second phase that involves the whole church. This is set to start January 1, 2017, with the help of The Upper Room, our church’s prayer partner. Check back soon. We will be building a website that will feature many tools and resources to help individuals, local churches, and annual conferences pray our way forward. If there is ever a place where we can be one, it’s in the space where we meet God.
Since September 11, we have been in a prayerful and challenging study using Dr. Elaine Heath’s new book, God Unbound: Wisdom for the Anxious Church.
Sign-up to directly receive the meditations to your email address. Each week features Dr. Heath sharing her insights via video message, a weekly leader’s guide for using the study with your small group or leadership team, excerpts for the book, and “go and do” exercises.
All meditation blogs and videos released since September 11 can found on the website. We invite you to use this resource with your leadership team in study and prayer. To learn more about God Unbound, visit our store.
