TEEN MISSIONS PRAYER CLOSET — You are a part of Teen Missions prayer vigil. During the 40- hour work week, a staff member is always praying in the Prayer Closet at the Merritt Island Office. Your prayer card is in our Prayer Closet, and you are brought before the Lord in prayer every business day. Each of the teams going out this summer also receive prayer to prepare everyone involved with the project. The team leaders, mission, missionaries, national believers, local witness of the team and availability of building supplies are all prayer concerns for the teams. Prayer is a vital, necessary part of all mission boards and ministries such as Teen Missions. “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” (Matthew 6:6)
