    Perspectives: CLT Prayer Initiative

    CLT Prayer Initiative: Introduction

    February 3, 2020 / By / 1 Comment

    Pray now,
    Pray for the Others.

    Love one another. The command echoes through Scripture and awakens us to life. Jesus intended for the world to verify the truth of his message by observing us in our love for one another and all God sends into our lives. (John 13:35, 17:22-23) This series of prayers began as a way to prepare us for General Conference. Because praying is an expression of loving that is accessible to all, we, your Conference Leadership Team, called all who could sense the resonance of our voices to, “Pray with us!”

    Now, General Conference has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Moreover, the world has changed, and we face an uncertain future together in entirely new ways. In this context, the need to pray together is greater now than ever.

    We invite you to continue to pray with us over in the coming weeks as we share prayers designed to be used however the Spirit calls you to use them. If the Spirit places it on your heart to include these prayers in your daily devotions, publish them on your social media page, or jump off from their movement into your own inspiration, go with God and with our blessing.

    I was born in Fulton , NY. Baptized by the hand of Bill Caldwell at the State Street Methodist Church in Fulton. Confirmed in the Faith at Liverpool UMC. Nominated to representative ministry from the Church Conference of St. Paul’s, Ithaca. Studied and formed my theology at Drew. Blessed to serve 16 local churches in 3 annual conferences. Prayer remains our best and brightest hope as we journey toward a future that “God alone can see”
