World Day of Prayer is a day our CEF founding fathers gave us, to be held the first Wednesday of November. This day of prayer has such power and potential, that we choose to step away from direct ministry to children for 24 hours and, instead, pray on behalf of children.
I am concerned that this important day is either forgotten completely or observed in a minimal way by others. We say we believe in prayer and would fight to defend it, and yet are we neglecting a day dedicated to prayer? I am guilty of not observing one day in which I pray specifically for the ministry of CEF. I pray for our ministry here locally everyday yet, I don’t take the time to pray for the organization as a whole the way that I should. Child Evangelism Fellowship is the largest world-wide ministry to children and so there is an amazing amount of workers, volunteers, and children who need prayer, and prayer makes a difference.
Therefore, I ask you, if you would join me by setting aside Wednesday, November 7 for prayer for the ministry of CEF around the globe. But don’t spend the day alone. Invite other members, churches, board and committee members, teens, and volunteers to join you in a day of prayer for the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship.
