2013 Week of Prayer Readings

Each year the Seventh-day Adventist Church celebrates a week of spiritual emphasis. The theme for the 2013 Week of Prayer is And They Followed Him. In support of the Week of Prayer, the Adventist Review is giving unrestricted access to this special issue. We've provided all the readings for the week, including the children's stories. We trust that this material will be a blessing to you.
