At Violet Baptist Church (VBC), Pickerington, Pastor Rick Williams has always sought to lead his church in a posture of prayer. In October, the church experienced 21 Days of Transforming Prayer with a prayer guide by Daniel Henderson.
They launched the campaign with a Night of Worship and Prayer. “The Night of Worship and Prayer was one of the most powerful times of prayer I have experienced. It was so encouraging to weave songs, scriptures, and prayer together. I would highly recommend this worship-based, scripture-fed, Spirit-led format of prayer we experienced,” shared Williams.
“It was very powerful. It was amazing to see small groups join and pray as we sought Christ and focused fully on Him. I would encourage you to have such a night at your church.”
Brian Naess, Small Groups and Missions pastor at VBC, agrees, “It was very powerful. It was amazing to see small groups join and pray as we sought Christ and focused fully on Him. I would encourage you to have such a night at your church.”
After the launch, the following three Sundays focused on the pattern of prayer found in the model prayer, Matthew 6:9-13, as taught in 21 Days of Transforming Prayer. The program features a simple design: Reverence, Response, Request, Readiness, and Return to Reverence, giving the church a trellis for scripture-fed, Spirit-led, worship-based prayer.
The SCBO will host a two-day prayer event with Daniel Henderson on March 23-24, 2023 at Violet Baptist Church in Pickerington. Thursday, March 23, will be a day of prayer with Henderson and on Friday, March 24, he will lead a half-day workshop on creating a culture of prayer in the church. All are invited to attend, so mark your calendar now; you will not want to miss this opportunity!
