"Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working." (James 5:16)

December 1973. The first general assembly of a new denomination yet to be named. An overture that its forming committee over world missions would encourage the denomination to pray for world missions:

Whereas the central task of the Church is summarized in the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, Matthew 28:18–20, therefore, be it resolved that the First General Assembly of the continuing Presbyterian Church request its Committee on Mission to the World:

  • To designate a day of their selection as a day or prayer and fasting for the world mission of the Church, and,
  • To provide appropriate material for promotion of such a day.

For 50 years, MTW has continued this annual assignment with great joy and expectation for how the Lord will answer.

And for 50 years the churches in the PCA and their congregants have faithfully prayed. This year, will you join in a tradition as old as the PCA itself and pray for world missions?

This prayer calendar is intended to be used during the month of November but can also be used throughout the year. It is designed to help guide your church in prayer for our missionaries and ministries.
