Please pray for the CBS ministry in the country of the day: CANADA: Please pray for this well-established ministry as it needs more national leaders to respond to the wonderful and varied opportunities to serve.

Why Pray?

Prayer is the first CBS core value. We pray because:
- God tells us to pray
- Prayer builds our relationship with Jesus
- God responds to our prayers

CBS leaders frequently pray using the A.C.T.S. acrostic:
- Adoration or Praise
- Confession of Our Sins
- Thanksgiving for God's grace, mercy, and provision
- Supplication or Petition for our and others needs
