And pray in the Spirit in all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. – Ephesians 6:18
We are called to pray – always
We are called to pray for all the Lord’s people
We are called to pray for our leaders
Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust – Acts 14:23
With Paul and Barnabas as our example,
we are calling The Salvation Army
to unite in prayer and fasting, as our leaders meet to elect
the next General of The Salvation Army,
trusting God for a Spirit led High Council.

SALVATIONISTS AROUND THE WORLD UNITE IN PRAYER FOR
THE HIGH COUNCIL 2013:
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
– Colossians 3:15-17
