In your private, individual prayer time, in your small Bible Study groups, in worship -- please pray intentionally that we will find God’s will in the collective life of First Baptist Church. For your personal daily prayer time, the weekly emphasis has been broken down to concentrate on the specific elements in the weekly emphasis. For your small groups and in worship, you may want to use the weekly emphasis or have individuals pray specifically for each element in your weekly gathering.
