The Baptist General Convention of Texas sent Field Street Baptist Church in Cleburne about 450 prayer guides last week. Field Street’s pastor, John Hall, said the church is using these guides to put an emphasis on prayer.
“I don’t think anything of eternal value can happen without prayer,” Hall said. “It makes us aware of the role of prayer and the initiative to share Christ.”
Hall said the church also is using these guides to launch the congregation’s involvement in Texas Hope 2010, a BGCT effort encouraging believers to pray for those around them, care for those in need and share the gospel with every person in Texas by Easter 2010.
Hall said prayer is such an important part of this effort because it has no limit.
“It’s something the entire church can do,” Hall said.
