US. Mennonite Brethren are invited to join Mennonite Brethren around the globe for a week of prayer and fasting Jan. 3-7, 2022. The International Community of Mennonite Brethren and Multiply are hosting the event.
“We are all invited to join in prayer with thousands around the globe, who fast and pray this week,” says an invitation from organizers. “Pray together with your family, your local church, your conference, the colleagues in the ministry you are part of.”
Virtual prayer meetings will be held in different places and in various time zones. The list of these gatherings is posted on the ICOMB website: https://www.icomb.org/2021/12/06/fasting-and-pray-week-2022/
Those who are planning virtual prayer meetings and are open to inviting people from the global family are asked to send the appropriate information to firstname.lastname@example.org. The information will be added to the existing list of prayer meetings.
The invitation says, “The month of January marks a new year and with it many new opportunities and challenges. We need the wisdom, guidance and strength of God to recognize and use these opportunities well and to deal with challenges rightly. What about all those who do not know the Creator God? To whom they can turn for wisdom and strength? What about whole nations that make so many decisions in the dark? They need God! We all do.”

ICOMB has associate members in over 20 more countries. Associate members are all on different points along the pathway to full membership.
