Q1 - January
​Christ Awakening Indicators: Prevailing Prayer: Amplified participation in corporate as well as individual prayer, fasting, and other spiritual disciplines leading to more effective discipleship,

Pray for and with those who care for children—nurses and physicians, workers in pregnancy care centers, adoption, foster care, day care and preschool teachers, social workers and counselors—asking God to set them apart in this critical work.
