Prayer Life

Prayer on the Plains

Join in the prayer movement throughout the Plains. As we enter into a holy time of prayer and discernment as a church, we invite you to join in the prayer movement. We pray that we may listen to God’s voice and pray for the church. Prayer is a way of opening ourselves up to God’s voice and to the heart of God and one another. So with this in mind, will you join in prayer?

Check this page regularly through February 23, 2019, when the special session of General Conference begins. We will keep an updated list of town hall meetings so you can learn and discuss the many sides of the Way Forward and highlight different practices each week to enhance your prayer life.
