Young Adults to Pray for the "Way Forward Commission"

By John Hodges-Batzka

The “Way Forward Commission,” a special group created by the United Methodist Church’s Council of Bishops to consider church rules around human sexuality and explore options that help to maintain and strengthen the unity of the church, has had its initial members chosen. These announcements have created challenge, frustration, and hope. Because prayer is a way for all of us to participate, we've created a space for young adults to gather to pray:

  1. Download the "Nimbus Prayer" app for iOS or visit
  2. Sign up to be a part of the Nimbus prayer community.
  3. Click the “Cloud” menu button. Then search for the "Way Forward" prayer group under "All.”
  4. Add your prayer(s).
  5. Invite friends to join you.

This group will continue as long as you utilize it to join other young adults in praying for God's presence, wisdom, and strength for all involved.
