Mennonite Mission Network invites you to reserve May 1, 2014, as a day of prayer for mission. Pray for mission workers around the world, for your congregation’s mission, and for the work of other congregations as we all engage in God’s mission together.

What to pray for
The Prayer Vine is a monthly calendar that gives you daily reminders of concerns that our mission workers have requested prayer for. Prayer Vines may be downloaded for free.

- Go on a prayer walk.
- Light a candle at your desk, to focus your thoughts on prayer.
- Make a collage of pictures to remind you to pray for those people.
- Invite a small group of people to your home for a Mission Network evening. Pick a specific country where Mission Network works. Read about the country and what the mission workers are doing there. Share a meal together from that country and pray for the mission workers.
- If you have Mission Network service participants in your city, invite the members of the unit to dinner and have a time of prayer for their work.
- Invite former service participants from your congregation to share their stories, either at church or at a meal, and then pray for the ongoing work of Mission Network service programs.
