Navigating the Social Media Jungle - a guide for Pastors

"I believe that we should just accept what was may be the time of the shaking"

Pause 2016

PAUSE 2016Pause for Prayer 2016

Undoubtedly, our world is spiritually deteriorating just as the Bible predicts and thousands of children, youth and young adults are part of a generation that is caught in the middle. Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, Simon! Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat, but I have PRAYED for you, that your faith should not fail..." Luke 22:31-32.

Jesus considers prayer a "weapon" in spiritual warfare and so should we. What would happen, if every church in the North American Division and around the world would "PAUSE" on Sabbath at 11:00 a.m. four times in 2016 and pray for 5 minutes? Can you image the power? Let's do this! Help get the word out! See attached church bulletin insert

Pause 5 minutes to pray for:

  • children
  • youth
  • unity
  • young adults
  • communities
  • you

Join us on the following dates - February 20, April 9, June 4, September 17.
