FRANKLIN — A Day of Prayer for Unity in the Tennessee Baptist Convention will be held Wednesday, April 26.
The prayer event is in conjunction with the Acts 2:17 Initiative as Tennessee Baptists are in the process of seeking God’s will for the future, said Steve Holt, church services director for the Tennessee Baptist Convention.
“Unity is the key to hearing from the Lord,” Holt noted.
As Tennessee Baptists look to the future, it is imperative “that we are praying to know the will of the Father,” said Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
Davis released a short video March 22 introducing a five-minute video by Claude King, who is heading the spiritual emphasis of the Acts 2:17 Initiative. “In these five minutes, he does a really good job of explaining what it means to be praying in agreement together as we seek the will of the Father,” Davis said.
In the video, King reminds viewers of the promise found in Matthew 18:19, “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.”
“When we pray, we need to know what God desires. When He reveals His desire, then that becomes our prayer request,” King said.
“We are asking Tennessee Baptists all across the state to commit some time together in prayer as we seek His will” and that “we are bold, brave and obedient” to follow His will.
“I can’t wait to see what the Father reveals to us and what our days, weeks and months are going to be like ahead of us.”
A second Day of Prayer is planned in September which will lead to 40 Days of Prayer prior to this year’s Summit, to be held Nov. 12-15 in Chattanooga.
