Ministerial Association Announces 40 Days Of PrayerMar 1st, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Church, Front Page
The Madison County Ministerial Association believes that the Scriptures remind the church that it needs to be in prayer as the people of God. Second Chronicles 7:14 addresses that issue: “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
As such, the Madison County Ministerial Association invites you and your congregation to join with them as “Madison County Prays” during the Lenten season. From 6 p.m. on Ash Wednesday, March 9, to 6 p.m. on April 18, we will unite in prayer.
The Ministerial Association is asking local churches to covenant with them in prayer for a 24-hour period. Each church can focus on prayer as they feel called to do so. The church may want to have a public prayer session, a 24-hour vigil, special services, open your church, prayer walk your neighborhoods or just ask folks to be in prayer specifically during that time. You may even want to join with another congregation to fill that day with prayer. Our goal is to flood the whole 40-day period with the prayers of God’s people.
If you would like to join in this prayer initiative, please plan to attend the kick-off at Madison Church of God on March 8 from 7-8 p.m. The church is located on the left of Highway 145 (Valdosta Highway), just past Rocky Ford Road. If you’re unable to attend the prayer rally and would still like to join the Ministerial Association during the 40 days of prayer, please call Kay Harris at (850) 973-3238. She will be glad to answer any questions you might have and supply you with materials that will help your church pray according to what God has in store for you.
