ANTIOCH, TN—This year, Free Will Baptists across the country will join together to fast and pray for the 2010 National Association of Free Will Baptists on Sunday, July 11, 2010. Churches are encouraged to emphasize prayer in their services, from music and sermons to organized prayer vigils and prayer chains.
According to Keith Burden, executive secretary, “While we encourage Free Will Baptists to pray for the convention throughout the year, we want to set aside one day where we all join together in a focused effort to pray for this year’s meeting.” He went on to add, “Prayer is the essential ingredient for a God-honoring convention!”
Convention Prayer Coordinator Danny Phillips added his encouragement. “I encourage everyone to pray faithfully for convention leaders and speakers. The Apostle Paul asked for prayer so when he opened his mouth, he would do so boldly, to ‘make known the mystery of the gospel’. I am sure this is true of our convention leaders and speakers as well.”
