Scripture says, that the prayer of the righteous man or woman is powerful and effective.

We invite you to join us and commit yourself in prayer for everything that involves the GLS Next Gen initiative around the world: leaders, students, countries, pastors, churches, organizations, projects, etc

Here is how it works: You choose a day of the month (3rd, 10th, 21st) you get it, and then commit to pray on that day! We will email out to everyone at the end of the month the prayer requests for that next month.

As part of our prayer community, you will also receive regular updates and stories about Next Gen, answers to your prayers!
