Challenges for Prayer

  4. Ask God to expose all lies of many sects and cults, and pray for effective ministry to the millions caught within these groups.

  5. Pray for wisdom for expatriate Christians to serve in the most helpful ways and pray for fruitful partnerships between expats and nationals.
