We begin to usher in a new day in the USA/Canada Region in the Church of the Nazarene.
We do this not in our own strength, but in the strength of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Do we believe God can change the trajectory of our declining churches?
Do we believe God will raise up leaders to start new churches?
Do we believe God has a place in our current culture for the Nazarene holiness message?
Of course, the answer is yes. Perhaps there has never been a better
time in the USA/Canada Region for the work of God’s church to breakthrough.
Let us join together in a time of prayer for renewal in our ministry and our churches.
Let us pray for a resurgence in the Nazarene message of hope and holiness.
“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.”
– John Wesley
As I shared before the message Sunday morning, the USA/Canada Region of the Church of the Nazarene is beginning a prayer emphasis from Sunday, May 1 through Sunday, June 5 (Pentecost Sunday). Our leadership is calling 500,000 people in the United States and Canada to rally together in prayer for our churches’ hope and future. We will be joining as a local church with our brothers and sisters in North America on this journey. Below are links to access a few resources to help guide us on this journey. There is a mobile app for Apple and Android, a daily prayer journal, and a link to a special issue of Holiness Today. There are also 2 videos below from our Board of General Superintendents with fellow Nazarenes around the region and the Regional Director of the USA/Canada Region, Dr. Stan Reeder.
I want to encourage you to join the rest of our church family in North American as we lift our voices to God, seeking His face and His will and His glory. During this season of prayer from now through Pentecost 2022, we will pray for God’s PROTECTION, DIRECTION, REVELATION for ourselves, our families, our pastors, our regional leaders, our college leaders, and for every person that calls themselves Nazarene in the USA/Canada Region. We join together in prayer for RENEWAL and for a RESURGENCE of our ministries to Make Disciples in all the Nations. We will have printed copies of the prayer journals available this Sunday.
