Saturday, December 22
As a congregation we are invited to pray and fast in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Congo (DRC) on the eve of their national elections. Please pray that the elections will be peaceful, fair, and just and that God would raise up godly leaders who would do what is right. We would like to have people signed up to pray every hour on December 22.
