Two times a year our ministry focuses all our schedules to pray. When I say "our schedules" I mean the full time staff of our ministry. All over the world, or at least 190 countries, staff pull back from their schedules and pray for our ministry efforts around the globe. My spiritual self says these are the most powerful days of our ministry. My flesh questions how effective this practice is, but I am reminded the way I measure things is so different than the way God does. So I conclude that it does not matter what I think about this day. I think God is pleased that we show up.
