Last spring the Kansas- Nebraska Conference hosted a Mid-America Prayer Conference at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The meeting brought 85 people together from conferences within our union.

“A prayer conference is really about inviting people into a living, loving relationship with Jesus,” said Virgil Covel, ministerial director for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference, who lead out in the planning and organization of the prayer conference. “Prayer is about coming into a relationship with God and being changed by Him. e prayer conference was designed to provide teaching, inspiration and time for individual prayer and reflection.”

Presenters shared experiences and thoughts on starting prayer ministries in their churches, keeping prayer journals and leading dynamic prayer lives. Keynote speaker Ron Carlson, president of the Kansas-Nebraska Conference, reminded attendees that Jesus uses broken people in powerful ways.

One attendee, re ecting on the conference, said, “It gave me a chance to reconnect with God in a special way, and it also reminded me of the assurance of salvation through grace alone.”

Plans are being laid for another Mid-America Prayer Conference in the spring of 2017. Join us and learn how prayer can change your life and the lives of others around you.
