From D.S. Brent Watson: "I write to encourage us to take seriously God's call upon our lives to pray earnestly. It is my desire to see this district - pastors, churches, ministries, communities and district staff - bathed in fervent prayer. I want us to seek after God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and yearn to see His Kingdom come to this region we call "home". If that is to occur, then we need to hold one another up in prayer and ask God to move in wonderful ways throughout this district."
A prayer list was sent to each pastor and church and Brent asks the following: "...please pray for the specific pastor, their family, the church and its leaders.... Pray for the ministries of that church, especially the ones that are touching the lives of unbelievers and the community where the church is planted. You might also choose to write a brief note of encouragement to the ones you are praying for that week."
