The Aim: to join together in prayer for Presbytery-related matters and to strengthen the bonds between congregations with Presbytery as a whole, and Presbyters and congregations with each other.

For Week 3, specific input to follow. For Week 4, I’ve randomly paired up congregations to pray for each other. In Week 5 we pray for relationships out-with the Presbytery.

 

Consider using visuals, audio, interviews, possibly a Skype call to augment the prayers.
