Praying

the World Around

We believe in the power of prayer at First Baptist Harlan and are committed to praying for our church, our community, our state, our nation and our world.  Each month we will focus on a different nation to pray for.  The third Sunday of the month, we will focus our corporate prayer on that country and would ask others to remember it in prayer throughout the month.

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 says "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
