Throughout our years in WEC ministry in Senegal and Northern Ireland, my husband and I were supported in prayer by WEC prayer groups all over the UK. For us, being part of a WEC prayer group is an opportunity to both pray regularly for others within WEC and to share life with those who still pray faithfully for our family.
Around fifteen of us meet monthly in our local prayer group. The format is simple: a visiting missionary may focus our attention on a country or ministry and bring specific prayer requests, or we may gain prayer points from WEC’s publications. Then we pray, asking for God’s will to be done in the earthly situations we’re praying for.
At the end of the evening, we stay together for supper and chat. Bonds formed through praying together are strong and precious. I’m glad this habit of meeting together to pray for WEC continues to be part of my life. Some habits are really worth keeping!
WEC has over 100 prayer groups in the UK and Ireland. Get in touch with your local WEC Rep if you would like to join one, or if you would like to start a group in your area.
