As they travelled from town to town, they delivered the decisions reached by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem for the people to obey. So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.

Acts 16:4-5

This is how disciples are kept together and instructed in the teaching given by the Lord to his apostles for the new churches. Pray for able men of understanding with caring hearts, who as students of the Word, pastors and teachers, will serve the churches today. Pray for sisters too, who will have a heart for this work among women and young folk.
