Suggestions for Prayer
Pentecost Sunday marks the end of the ten days of prayer when we’ve been encouraged to pray for five “friends” to come to faith in Jesus. It also provides opportunity to give thanks for the Birthday of the Church, through the empowering and guidance of the Holy Spirit, and be constant in our prayers and work as we long for the renewal of the Church and revival worldwide.
