There are numerous ways in which we seek to be a “House of Prayer.”
The Prayer Room is available 24/7 to members of First Baptist Church. Prayer requests from our church family are posted, but most come from members of the community who ask us to pray. Cards are available to send notes of encouragement, or “prayer-grams.” We also post prayer requests from International Mission Board missionaries five times per week, so there are always recent requests in need of prayer. Prayer Room orientation is offered to those wishing to participate in the prayer room ministry.
First Baptist Church has a prayer line and it’s easy to remember. According to God’s Word, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week God hears us when we PRAY. Thus, (305) 24/7-PRAY is the number to call to leave a prayer request. We routinely receive calls from all over America from people who have discovered that we are a church who will sincerely pray for them.
The Prayer Team
The prayer team is a small group prayer gathering that is the backbone of our mid-week activities. This meeting is prayerful (most time is actually spent talking to God, not to each other) and Kingdom focused (we pray for the growth of God’s kingdom more than just physical needs). We pray for a different country or people group each week, as well as for specific missionaries and the requests they bring. We also pray for the needs brought to our attention by the church body. The prayer-team meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm.
Prayer-grams are the notes of encouragement we send for the many requests we receive. Participants receive weekly email updates listing the prayer requests. At some point during the week, they are encouraged to write and send a simple note of encouragement so that they will know someone was praying.
First Things First
First Things First is a monthly men’s prayer breakfast that takes place the first Saturday of every month. Men enjoy a quick meal and devotion, followed by a time of prayer for each other. Men leave refreshed and encouraged.
