Prayer

Ministry

The Prayer Ministry at Green Acres Baptist Church is the cornerstone for the various ministries and programs at our church. At GABC, prayer is not an option but rather an essential part of daily living. We encourage Christians to seek the Lord in prayer above all else, and teach them to develop their own personal prayer lives.

 

The Apostle Paul said, “The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.

 

He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we have learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.

 

Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.” 1 Timothy 2:1-10 (MSG)

Prayer Meetings

 

Our weekly prayer times offer opportunities for people to learn to pray–as individuals or in small groups–and to engage in a purposeful life of prayer.

 

Perhaps God has placed a passion in your heart to pray with others for something specific. If you are interested in starting a prayer group, please contact Glenn Jones at 903-525-1165.
