One church in a small New York town decided to canvass its community by prayer. There were no brochures, newsletters, or tracts; just prayer. No one pressed a doorbell or made a phone call. The church members simply prayer earnestly. With a red marker and a map, they prayed that God would touch the lives of those who lived on each of the town’s forty streets.
What happened? People started visiting the church “out of the blue.” One Sunday four families came on the same week that the church had prayed for households on their street. Prayer had gained access.

What a great encouragement to pray for our people in Walgett, Colly, Cryon, and Rowena. Only God knows what might happen!
