002_Setting the World on Fire

In this episode we unpack what it means to 'set the world on fire!' Inspired by Luke 12:49 when Christ says; "I came to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish that it were already ablaze!",  we hope to share some thoughts and suggestions on how to do this. God has a purpose and a mission for your life and is inviting you to share in His mission of evangelisation.

Challenge for the week: 

Simon: Find some time to do a Holy hour and figure out what  gives you a holy anger! Is it abortion, poverty, pornography or something else? Ask the Lord how He is calling you to respond to that? Your mission will be as fruitful as your prayer life is deep!

Maddie: Get some spiritual backup! Allow a patron saint to adopt you for 2020 or pray a novena to a particular saint asking for guidance and help in your mission. 


Prayer Plan:
