MWC Online Prayer Hour

“Though we truly live out our Christian faith in local communities, it is when we meet as a global church we begin to grasp the vastness of God’s grace,” says Elisabeth Kunjam, a Mennonite church member from India.

From Indonesia to Peru, participants are invited to join MWC’s Online Prayer Hour sponsored by the Deacons Commission.  

Participants enter breakout rooms on the Zoom online meeting platform to pray in smaller groups in English, Spanish and French.

The prayers include thanks: gratitude to God for protection from harm in this difficult time.

“Praying together brings a wonderful feeling of being part of the global Mennonite family,” says Hans Gerhard Peters, MWC General Council member for Aliança Evangélica Menonita, Brazil.

“I am confident that when we come together for praying, God listens and answers us,” says Deacons Commission chair Siaka Traoré of Burkina Faso.
