Hey Prayer warriors,

From Fred Pry (CEF Assistant Vice President):

Importance of Prayer as our Foundation

It is not the work that we do, the meetings we hold or the decisions we make that bring the greatest advances in the work; it is the time spent before the throne of God in prayer, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that brings power, laborers and resources into the ministry.
