Pray & Take Action

Every January, we focus our attention on praying for racial reconciliation, the sanctity of human life and the nations. We cry out to God on behalf of the voiceless. We advocate for those who have no one to stand up for them. We ask God to protect and care for those who are persecuted. Our Father cares deeply about racial diversity and unity, the protection of life and the nations, and as His sons and daughters, we should care deeply, too.

This year, we encourage you to take the time to pray through these topics individually and with your family and group. We also encourage you to consider how you might take action on these issues that are so near to the heart of God.
