Intercessory Prayer Ministry 2022
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1). Living by faith is an action that reveals our hope and trust in God. As we enter into this year of living out our faith, we continue to believe that the power of prayer strengthens us and continually connects us to our Lord Jesus. He taught His disciples how to pray and He continues to teach us to pray by the power of His Holy Spirit. However, it is up to us to dedicate time to pray. This may mean a quiet time during the early morning, a quick break in the midday, or a prayer with family, friends or even a stranger.
God desires us to humbly come before Him and seek His face. This means intentionally removing distractions that monopolize our time and energy from Him. Prayer has an amazing power to bring us back into the awareness of God and His purpose for our lives. Prayer increases our focus on the Word of God and renews our minds. It opens our hearts to be compassionate for the needs of others. It equips us for spiritual warfare. It empowers us to live by faith.
Make a commitment this year to grow in faith with us through the power and presence of prayer. Prayer opportunities will continue during our Thursdays’ 7:00 am hour of Hope Through Prayer. This can be accessed by calling 667-770-1476 using code 290035#. Monthly prayers can be accessed through our Third Baptist Church website. Join us on the first and fourth Sundays of each month for intercessory prayer at 9:00 am to 9:30 am using the conference call phone line 667-770-1476 using code 290035#. You can also leave your prayer concerns via email, phone, or at the church office.
Throughout Jesus’ life, He demonstrated the importance of prayer. He would go to quiet places and spend time in prayer (Luke 5:16). He also took the time to pray for us (John 17:20-21). Let us be intentional to pray for each other so that the joy of the Lord will be our strength as we live out our journey of faith.
