If we are on a mission to connect, serve, share, and grow, doesn't it make sense that we should stay in communication with the One who is sending us out? Prayer is how we stay connected to God, and is the source of our power and strength. Finding God's heart for the world starts with prayer because it moves us from our perspective to God's perspective. It is a central, consistent means to bring God's power to bear on every life we touch. We cannot live a life on mission without prayer.
