Prayer Opportunities in November 2016

“Apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5b (NLT)
 
Jesus said we could do nothing without Him. But the cool thing about it is, nothing is impossible with Him! And let me define nothing… it means absolutely “no thing.” Whether it’s the election before us, or our nation around us, in Christ there is always hope. As you pray, please cry out to God from this “all things are possible” mindset.
 
Here are some of the prayer activities and opportunities to join with others asking God to do those “nothing impossible” things.
