Prayer Emphasis Week
JOIN THIS PRAYER MOVEMENT!
2020 has brought great challenges and crises. In desperate times like these, God’s people are to cry out to Him for forgiveness, guidance, and hope.
Here is a message from Executive Director Thomas Hammond that we encourage you to watch, download, and share. You can post it on social media or play it for your church on August 2 to begin the week of prayer.
Will you join the prayer movement?
The Prophet Joel said: “Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord” (Joel 1:14).
The week of August 3-9, Georgia Baptists will follow Joel’s command. We are calling this movement, “Pray Georgia.” Pastors from across Georgia have prepared devotionals and a prayer guide to help focus our prayers this week. In addition, each region will take one day to fast.
Our only hope will be discovered in prayer and fasting!
