Good news from Brownwood


Rick Davis, pastor of Brownwood First Baptist, reports on his blog that five teenagers made public professions of faith Sunday. Then he noted:

“I think the praying Texas is doing for lost people at noon each day is resulting in baptisms in our churches.”

This reminds me that I haven’t been consistent in this regard, but I know many have been. In case you missed it, as part of Texas Hope 2010, we are seeking 100,000 people to pray at noon everyday for the lost to come to faith in Christ and for the needs of the hungry to be met. Sign up here. But more importantly, pray!

Thanks for the great news and the reminder, Rick.

    A reminder: 15 years ago, Ted Elmore taught Texas Baptists about “Praying the Heart of God”–to pray for: (1) the lost; (2) the church; and, (3) the family. The Lord already is committed to answering prayers regarding those three areas, specifically–and His people only are joining Him in His work when we pray for folks in those categories. Way to go, Ted–and way to go, Rick!

    I seldom go fishing, because I want to KNOW there are fish in the body of water before I use my time that way. “Praying the Heart of God” is KNOWING there are fish in the water–so drop a hook in the water!

    Texas Baptists, it seems to me, would be wise to follow Bro. Ted’s advice to pray that way during the year to come, as those mentioned in the blog posting apparently are and ones participating in Texas Hope 2010 should (LBC-WF’s January Bible Study in 2009: Praying the Heart of God; copies available via Wayne Shuffield’s BGCT office).
