If you want the world to be a better place in 2016, then pray for your local church. Your local church – no matter how big or small – has the potential to change the course of history. In fact, one day in eternity, the redeemed will probably hear the stories of God’s faithfulness in your local church. Pray for holiness, for the filling of the Holy Spirit, for every member to use their spiritual gifts, for maturity in theology, for spiritual breakthrough against evil, and for mobilization to mission. Your investment in your local church is a strategic investment in the world in which she exists. God loves his Bride. And God will use his Bride to call the nations to repentance.
