“They raised their voice to God in one accord” Acts 4:24
September 27, 2009
Purpose: a day for MARBC churches to devote their attention to prayer for our churches, pastors, state fellowship, camps, ministries, missionaries, and special needs.
Ideas for Participation:
Preach and teach on the topic of prayer in worship services, Sunday School, ABFs, and small groups. I.e., a study of the Disciple’s Prayer in Matthew 5; prayers recorded in the Bible, the qualities of prayer, hindrances to prayer, etc.
Plan a 24-hour prayer marathon or other prayer event leading up to Sunday. Materials related to various prayer events are available from the MARBC office.
Join with a sister church or churches in your area for a special prayer service.
Take a moment during the morning worship service to pray for the churches, pastors, camps, missionaries, and ministries of the MARBC. Pray also for sister churches in your area. Every church in the MARBC fellowship is encouraged to pause at the 11:00 a.m. hour on September 27 to come before the Lord praying in “one accord.” While worship and service times vary in our churches, most of our churches are assembled in some ministry setting at the 11:00 a.m. hour. This would also be a good time for deacons and/or other church members to pray on behalf of their pastors in anticipation of Clergy Appreciation Month in October.
Use the special Day of Prayer to focus upon the ministries of the MARBC. Bulletin inserts, prayer cards and other literature are available to download at www.marbc.net or by contacting the MARBC office. Some MARBC churches receive a special love offering on behalf of the MARBC. The MARBC ministry office and Executive Director are supported by the love gifts from churches in the fellowship.
