How to Pray for Mormons

Recently, the Center for Great Commission Studies drew attention to a symposium on Mormonism held at BYU. This symposium helps us understand Mormons and thus know how to pray for them. 

Here’s an excerpt:

Many have gone out from Southeastern and chose to go and plant churches among the dark places here in North America. Utah is a great example of a place that desperately needs the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Ben is a church planter serving in the greater Salt Lake City area. He works diligently to show how a correct understanding of Mormonism is absolutely necessary for us as Christians, evangelicals, and Southern Baptists. Recently, a symposium was held on the Campus of BYU, a stalwart of the Mormon faith. This symposium highlighted three definitions of grace held by the LDS, Catholic, and Evangelical/Protestant perspectives.

CGCS: The Hard Truth about Salt Lake City

Recently, a group of Southeasterners traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for a mission trip among the majority Mormon population. Southeastern student and E-Marketing Specialist, Sam Morris wrote about their experience. He offers some insight on the hard truth about Salt Lake City and ways we can pray for them, and especially the evangelicals working among them.

Salt Lake City is the most unreached city in America with 98% of its inhabitants living without the understanding that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man. He is Lord and Savior. Let’s break that number down just a bit: 70% of the population would consider themselves Mormon while another 28% have no religious affiliation. With more than 2.6 million people, there is one Southern Baptist church for every 43,000 people.

And that’s in the middle of America.
