My prayer life for the nations before Pray1040 was sadly… nonexistent. I often go through life with blinders on where I only think about my life. The Pray1040 emails are a weekly reminder to open my eyes and heart to the rest of the world. It’s absolutely worth the “extra” email in my inbox.

As a bonus, I enjoy learning aspect of the Prayercast emails and seeing the countries in the videos makes me want to go visit them!
