5 Things to Pray For Your Church

7.12.2016 | Prayer, Congregational Life,

A new resource to assist congregations pray together.

Recent conversation and feedback from around the Presbyterian Church in Ireland has highlighted the need to find fresh ways to reinvigorate praying together as congregations.

In helping to breath new life into our congregations’ prayer life, PCI's Council for Congregational Life and Witness, in association with the Good Book Company, is able to offer copies of Rachel Jones’ book 5 Things to Pray For Your Church with a 50% discount on the cover price.

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
