AUGUST 26, 2018

Together, we enter this 13th week of prayer and fasting for the mission and unity of The United Methodist Church. Below you will find the names of those who will play major roles in the February 23-26, 2019 special session of the General Conference to be held in St. Louis.  Please join us in prayer and fasting for them—that they may be guided by the Holy Spirit in their conduct, their attitudes, and their decisions.

We believe that prayer is the most significant and positive spiritual thing we can do for this important moment in the history of the United Methodist  Church. Thank you for joining this global prayer initiative.
