A Praying Pastor's Prayer Emphasis

Household of Faith Prayer Focus


A summary of our prayer emphasis for January and February is show below. Please pray with us as we make prayer the priority in our Church. I don’t want this to become another program event that we have done.

In Sunday School this Sunday we introduced the topic of Prayer using Chapter One of the classic How To Pray by R.A. Torrey. That chapter details 11 reasons to pray. Prayer Calendars will be distributed on Sunday. I’ll email you a copy. As things evolve, I’ll keep you posted. I am really looking forward to your ministry.

For January Our goals are:
1. 100% of membership active in prayer service and/or a prayer group,
2. Focused prayer for revival in our church
3. Train prayer partners for new members (Monica is developing a training session) and,
