Prayer Priorities – October 11
Prayer Priorities – October 11
“And the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.”
Luke 6:19
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.
