The Church of Ceylon Prayer Ministry was launched in October 2017. Church leadership is increasingly aware of the need for prayer to permeate every activity of the church. The aim of Prayer Ministry is to encourage an attitude of intentional prayer in every church member and to equip and enable those with a specific calling for intercessory prayer.
