Thirty Days of Prayer - Day Nineteen

The triennial theme is so relevant and captivating, “Come, Abide, Go”. These are words of Jesus Christ in the spirit of Gathering a special Community from ordinary people, Building and establishing them in the faith, and Releasing them in the world for Ministry work.

But a flashlight placed in their hand seemed to do the trick. Having a light with them gave them reassurance that they would not be left in the dark...
