30 Days of Prayer
One of the most important ways that we can prepare ourselves for the upcoming North America College Training is to have adequate and thorough prayer.
Just as Daniel in the Bible prayed to God daily at specific times, we strongly urge everyone coming to the NACT to set aside a specific time for prayer each day for thirty days, beginning June 17.
We have prepared 1 prayer item and 1 verse for each day to help guide you in your prayer. May the Lord strengthen each one of us to persevere in prayer during these thirty days so that the Lord may fully accomplish His desire in all of us!
