You might be anticipating going to MMR2018 this week, or you might be seeking to pray for a loved one who is at MMR. In either case, let me tell you about the prayer we are doing in preparation for the event and suggest ways you can join us in praying for the event.
Prayer Walking and Laying the Prayer Foundation
I also want to encourage you by letting you know that our team is praying for every individual man in several ways. They will prayer walk their way through the cabins praying for each individual bunk. They will likely also pray for each chair in the worship center. Prior to arriving we will pray for each nametag.
Ways You can Pray Before the Event
Pray for the safety of everyone as they travel – Speakers, workers, music personnel, attenders, everyone.
Pray for the stress level of the men to be lowered by the setting.
Pray for the registration process to go smoothly.
Pray that God uses the speaker to give His message to these men.
Pray that the men will trust one another and share honestly during cabin time.
Pray that the event will be injury free, especially during the recreation time.
Pray for a deeper level of Biblical understanding among the men.
Pray for a deeper level of Biblical practice, especially through service in the church, to result.
