One of the most interesting movements--clearly being brought about by God--in the last decades of this century is a movement toward prayer. God is calling His Church to pray! The signs are all around us. Pray! was birthed in the Spring of 1997 to be a voice for that prayer movement.
Pray! is produced by NavPress and The Navigators, it is a cooperative effort of four organizations and networks: America's National Prayer Committee, the Denominational Prayer Leaders Network, Mission America, and the National Association of Evangelicals. Members of these groups make up our advisory board, which helps to shape the content of the magazine.

The mission of Pray! is: (1) to challenge and equip believers to pray more diligently and effectively; (2) to encourage believers to step out of their comfort zones in regard to prayer; and (3) to inform believers of the scope of the prayer movement and its organizations.
