Prayer Priorities – November 1, 2022
“Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good.”
Titus 3:1
We encourage everyone who is praying for UMN not only to raise our requests but to listen to God on UMN’s behalf. Please take time to read this Bible verse slowly to yourself. Pause and ask God to speak through His Word. Then read it slowly again. Settle and calm your mind before you pray.
