2020 Vision | Praying for God's Heart for the City
Back in Bruce Milne’s time, First Baptist Church went through a visioning process
The plan is to hold one meeting each calendar month. Three of these will be incorporated into the regular congregational business meetings as focused times set aside for prayer for the project. In addition to guided times of prayer, the other nine gatherings will include updates on aspects of the HFTC
These monthly prayer gatherings will be scheduled on different days of the week and at different times of the day, to allow everyone to attend at least three during the year. They will be led by members of the Pastoral Team, under the direction of the Senior Minister, with input in some of them from Broek Bosma and other members of the HFTC oversight teams.
In addition, to remind us all to keep praying between these meetings, we will distribute digital documents and laminated bookmarks that will include a list of key things for people to be praying about during the year.
“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” - Samuel Chadwick
