All United Methodists in the jurisdiction are asked to prayerfully support the November 10-11 virtual jurisdictional conference. Beginning November 1 and each day until November 11 pause at 10:11 a.m. and pray the following prayer:
Psalm 22:21 - For all to get along well with God and be at peace; that something good will come to your people, Almighty God; we pray for the guidance and fire of your Holy Spirit to be with everyone at the 2021 Special North Central Jurisdictional Conference. May the Holy Spirit fill the hearts and minds of leaders and delegates with wisdom and peace that work towards all that you want carried out at this time. Let us remember to give all glory and honor to our Savior Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray, Amen.
