40 Days of Prayer 2016
BY: DONNY HYMER
Concerned pastors and lay people have come together again this year to ask the people of El Dorado and Union County to join together in 40 Days of Community Prayer. This event began last year, and while receiving some noticeable opposition for promoting this event on city/county websites, was a great success.
Let me invite you to join me in participating in the 40 Days of Community Prayer event beginning Saturday, October 1 through Wednesday, November 9. You are challenged to fast on Day 1, Day 20, and Day 40 of this prayer event.
As a church, we will be participating in the 40 Days of Community Prayer by providing our attendees with the daily prayer guides prepared for this event. The guide will provide you with a scripture reading, an observation about something in our city to pray about, and a suggested prayer for each day. We will provide these on a weekly basis. Also, each Sunday during the 40 Days of Community Prayer, we will commit time in our worship service to pray for our city.
The El Dorado News Times will provide the prayer guide information in each daily issue through the 40 days. It will also be posted on a Facebook page for the 40 Days of Community Prayer.
Will you be part of a prayer revolution? Will you commit to pray for El Dorado? Be a part of the 40 Days of Community Prayer!
