Season of prayer for the NBA
The Northern Baptist Association is calling all its churches to join in prayer throughout September
The ‘season of prayer’ aims to help those in the Association ‘seek God together, bring our needs and concerns to him in intercession, and to deepen our support for one another,’ said NBA Regional Minister Paul Revill.
The centrepiece of the month will be a walking pilgrimage to all the Association’s 52 churches, taking place over three weekends. The team will pray in each church location, and as they walk between their churches.
Churches have also been encouraged to try praying in a new way, such as holding a 24-hour prayer event, getting onto a high place where they can see their region and praying for their community, booking an unusual venue and praying there, or going to a place where they feel God is at work.
'We will use this time to listen to God, to seek God for direction, to intercede for our neighbourhoods and the wider world, to ask God to change and transform us,' read a statement on the website. 'May his Kingdom come and his will be done.
'We are hoping that this will be a month when we learn more about prayer, individually and together; where we see God answering prayers and increasing our faith as we pray; where relationships across our Association will be strengthened as we commit to praying together.'
‘Try to get as much prayer going between and across our churches throughout the month of September,’ added Paul in a short film posted on the NBA website. ‘Let’s deepen our experience of God and see him working more powerfully amongst us.’
