Church of God General Overseer Tim Hill kicked off a #wepraycog initiative with Niko Njotorahardjo, pastor of Gereja Bethel Church in Indonesia . The 40-week emphasis towards intense and focused prayer will end at the 78th International General Assembly in Indianapolis next summer.

"Just a few weeks ago I was with Pastor Niko in Jakarta and the Lord spoke to me about this," Hill explained to the Council members. "Pastor Niko and his congregation are well-known as a praying church that has affected thousands around the globe for many years. I am so pleased to have Pastor Niko and the Gereja Bethel Church as a primary partner in this endeavor."

Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada's General Superintendent David Wells also launched a Pray Canada Campaign 2019 . "We believe God has a purpose and plan for Canada that is much greater than anything we could imagine for ourselves," said Rev. Wells. "And when we seek God's heart and will through prayer, we're aligning ourselves to be an active part of that plan. Join us as we embrace this opportunity ­to pray for the future of Canada like never before and believe that through us God will do great things. Our goal is to have all of Canada's 338 ridings (political districts) covered in prayer leading up to the federal election in October! Congregations across the country can adopt their riding in prayer to bless their federal leaders and all who are involved in the electoral process."

The Church of God in Christ started 40 days of prayer conference call led by Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. The daily call started on September 25 and ends on November 3rd. The prayer is for COGIC's 112th Annual Holy Convocation in St. Louis. The International Pentecostal Holiness Church hosted a regional prayer gathering emphasizing the harvest and recalling the prophecy giving by John Dawson in 1991 to the movement.

The third IPHC Regional Prayer Conference met at Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, Oklahoma, September 13-14, 2019. Hosted by Dr. Lou Shirey and the WIN Prayer Ministry, representatives from five states gathered to seek the Lord's face and intercede for the harvest in communities, cities, and nations.

Members of First Church of the Open Bible in Des Moines, Iowa, were praying about ways to become more involved in their community when one member, Kelly Dawson, heard about a need at a local school, Monroe Elementary.

Monroe has its share of challenges. Eighty percent of Monroe's student population of more than 500 students are from diverse ethnic backgrounds. In the 2017-2018 school year, there were six common languages spoken by its students. In the 2018-2019 school year, there were ten. Yet school staff say the biggest challenge with a global student body isn't teaching English; it's poverty. 
The PCCNA Commission on Christian Unity helped facilitate several sessions at the 25th Pentecostal World Conference in Calgary, Canada. PCCNA member and chairman of the conference, Rev. David Wells, invited the commission to help lead the sessions. The steering committee members (Rev. Dr. Harold D. Hunter, Dr. Cecil M. Robeck and Dr. David Cole), with Rev. Frank Patrick, PCCNA Christian Unity Liaison on behalf of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, facilitated two Affinity Group sessions, "Unity Unleashed: Engaging the Wider Body of Christ."

The focus was on the challenges and opportunities of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christians relating to Christians and churches from other ecclesial families. Over 100 people from retirees to teenagers attended the sessions, which expressed the role of unity between believers, as they seek to fulfill the Great Commission by the power of the Holy Spirit. Panelists and moderators offered insightful presentations from their ecumenical experiences and ecclesial perspectives. The sessions concluded with prayer for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to move men and women towards faithful witness in bringing believers and churches together in unity.

The organizers of this Affinity Group are grateful for the sacred opportunity, and hopeful that in the season to come the Pentecostal World Fellowship will continue to make room for thoughtful reflection on the role member churches and Christians play in building bridges of unity and reconciliation with other Christians and churches around the world, in fulfillment of the John 17 prayer of Jesus. - David Cole
Memphis Chapter Hosts Unity Eventunity
The Memphis Chapter hosted a rally to promote unity in late September. Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland, Councilwoman Patrice Robinson, and Vickie Terry, director of the NAACP chapter were at the gathering. "The event was an overall success and well received by the community," said Pastor Aaron Campbell, president of the PCCNA Memphis Chapter. "The Memphis Police Department displayed the giant Robotic Policeman that was throughly enjoyed by everyone."

Several musical groups performed and prayer tents were set up to minister. "The Embrace Unity event is just one of the many tools that the Memphis Chapter of the PCCNA uses to bring harmony among the city," said Campbell. The chapter is also collaborating with World Overcomers Church to host the Ongoing Pursuit of the Memphis Miracle featuring Will Ford, Matt Locket and Dutch Sheets.

Foursquare Pastors Richard and Cheryl Sejour were among the first to minister to survivors of Hurricane Dorian when their long-scheduled trip to the Bahamas turned into a relief mission.

Dr. Cathy Payne, Global Ministries Coordinator for the Church of God of Prophecy said, "We have been in contact with the national overseer daily even as communication lines were being repaired. Nassau was not hit as severely as was Great Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. National Overseer Franklin Ferguson has not been personally affected more than power outages and clean up."
October 13 is Pastor Appreciation Sunday. Here are some resources for Pastor Appreciation Month.

"Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine."  (1 Timothy 5:17 NKJV)
