The denomination-wide 'Praying Our Way Forward' initiative has planned 75 weeks of focused prayer for The United Methodist Church. The effort began January 1 in the North Carolina Conference, and wrap up in the West Angola Episcopal area in June 2018.

Each annual conference will take one week to have intentional prayer for the mission of The United Methodist Church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and for the work of the Commission on a Way Forward. The North Georgia Annual Conference will pray the week of March 19-25, 2017.

"The aim of 'Praying Our Way Forward' is to ask and listen for God’s leadership at this critical time in the life of our church,” said Bishop Al Gwinn, who co-chairs the initiative.  

Co-chair Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett adds, “In addition to participating in a designated week of prayer, individuals are invited to join the initiative by praying daily and fasting weekly for our church, mission and future.”
