VMMissions Hosts Prayer as Mission Seminar
Posted on October 7, 2020 by VMMissions Staff
VMMissions workers Michael and Ruthy Hershey led a seminar focused on engaging prayer as the foremost tool given to us by which to engage in God’s mission and see God’s purposes unfold in our lives and in our world. Held in Harrisonburg, Va., on October 17 and 18, the socially-distanced event was attended by various VMMissions workers, staff, members of Ministry Support Teams, and community members.
Ruthy led the group in a reflection of the riveting story from 2 Chronicles 20 of Jehoshaphat facing an onslaught from powerful enemy armies. She helped participants discover principles from this text that enable them to pray in powerful alignment with God’s heart, to joyfully see God bring breakthrough in surprising ways. Participants were then guided by Michael and Ruthy in applying the material from the morning, which involved prayer and activation in small groups and reflection.
As one participant shared, “Wow! So refreshing and vibrant! I came away anxious to use what I have learned with my MST and elsewhere.”
