PRAYER changes the trajectory of the lives of those called to lead and to serve. With all of the complexities of decison-making leaders face on a daily basis, the security in the choices they make on behalf of those they serve, is in the commitment to prayer.
PRAY THE PATH is taking the infallible truths of the written word in scripture, to attend to the needs of leaders. Pray the Path takes prayer as foundational to set a course for choices to be made. Our leaders and policy makers face difficult choices. They lead oftentimes in a vaccum far from paths that lead to easy answers to complec questions. And so, we lead this work undersdtanding the gravity of our call to prayer. Our work is not only fraternal to leaders and policy makers in the public square, but a full community of voices.
At PRAY THE PATH, we believe in the power of prayer in the affairs of leaders. Special thanks to the International Justice Mission - www.ijm.org, and without which, the full breadth of this work would not have been realized.
