This week, the global Church is busy with Easter preparations. Although the celebration of Easter looks different depending on tradition and culture, the goal is the same: to celebrate the risen Christ. Here are a few ways you can pray for missions during this week:
1. Pray that the Holy Spirit will be present and glorified in all churches on Easter Sunday.
2. Pray for churches to present a clear message of the saving love of Jesus Christ. Pray that the true message of the Resurrection will be communicated despite cultural distractions. (Easter bunnies = not super helpful. Other cultures also contain numerous traditions that do little to add to the message of Easter.)
4. Pray for a real celebration!
Speaking of praying, how do you prepare your own heart for Easter?
