Join us to Pray in May in 2023
MTS Pray in May is a month-long campaign inviting all Christians around Australia to partner in prayer with the MTS movement.
Pray in May engages countless Christians in praying to God to raise up harvest workers. This year, we’re focusing Pray in May on Psalm 40, and our need to be dependent on God.
Psalm 40:1-2 says, “I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
In May this year, join us in praying that God would be the firm place we stand and that he will multiply the efforts of MTS.
MTS (Ministry Training Strategy) is a movement that promotes and facilitates ministry apprenticeships. These apprenticeships are designed to raise up harvest workers through two-year, hands-on ministry training in local churches, on campus and in other ministry placements.
MTS apprentices are well placed to then undertake theological study and become gospel workers who are able to handle God’s word with care and apply it with wisdom to the lives of those to whom they minister. Hundreds of men and women have completed MTS apprenticeships in Australia, and the movement is growing internationally.
We would deeply appreciate your prayers this month that our movement may continue to grow and see more apprentices raised up, to win the world for Christ.
