Pray for the presidential elections in Peru. Eligible citizens must vote in person during the first round on Sunday, April 11.

Pray for God’s peace and power to reign among the people.
The phrase, “First of All, Pray!”, inspired by 1 Timothy 2:1, is the name of our prayer ministry. It reflects the prominence of prayer within our community. It’s been a mark of our Mission for more than 100 years. The mark remains. First of all, pray—deliberately, intentionally, and in faith, with praise and thanksgiving.
