Everyone Can Pray

“Most gracious God, we pray that you will send your Holy Spirit in a new and powerful way upon each session of the Methodist conferences that are before us. We ask that everyone who participates will be open to your will and your way. We pray for a mighty revival in our world so that all may receive Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, as Lord and Savior, become his faithful disciples, and that our world may be transformed. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
