12 Prayers in 12 Weeks 2016
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men-the testimony given in its proper time.
1 Timothy 2:1-6 (NIV)
Bible Societies are passionate about prayer. God invites us into His presence where Jesus Himself mediates on our behalf. He tells us to bring our "requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving" for everyone. Simply, we believe in prayer - we trust God to hear us and lead people into His truth, peace and salvation as a result. PLEASE JOIN US!
YOU CAN JOIN IN ANY TIME DURING THE 12 WEEKS.
