The Winnipeg LMT Network leadership team is encouraging churches in Winnipeg to demonstrate and share the good news of Jesus with their Muslims neighbors and work colleagues; to promote prayer and training to engage with them; and to challenge churches to focus on a specific mosque community for their prayer and actions of friendship.
- For the LMT Network leadership team as they help churches recognize and engage with the Muslim community in meaningful ways.
- For the churches and individuals who are presently involved on a regular basis in contact with Muslims through kind deeds and in sharing the truths of the gospel of Grace.
- For God to open up the hearts of Muslims in Winnipeg, particularly those who have active interaction with Christians in the city, so that they will be ready to receive the message of the Gospel.
- For the integration of the Muslim-background believers into the churches of Winnipeg and for their spiritual growth as followers of Jesus.
