Our father in heaven. May your name be honored. May your kingdom come, may your will be done—as in heaven, so on earth.
— Jesus in Matthew 6

This is our prayer for this city. That God’s reign would break in. That God’s presence would be more and more obvious. That God’s people would be actively making that happen—that is, blessing people as conduits of God’s presence. That more and more of what God intended for his creation would be do in Arequipa, as it is in heaven.

Join us in praying this prayer for Arequipa and also for wherever you live.
