Ways to Pray for Us

E.M. Bounds says...

“Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still.” – E.M.Bounds

Truly it is the prayers of friends like you that will accomplish much on behalf of the City of Nations. So please pray for more “called and committed” intercessors for SLM.
