BHBC Prayer Ministry
The vision of the BHBC Prayer Leadership Team is that everyone in our church will know through experience and practice that everything they seek to accomplish in their personal growth and in their work for the Lord must first begin with prayer - that each person will seek personal cleansing, repentance, and supernatural praying. We want our church family to view ourselves first as people who pray and then as people participating in organized prayer through the prayer ministry.
The goal for our church is that we will be a "...house of prayer...", Isaiah 56:7. So everyone is encouraged to be part of the BHBC Prayer Force in addition to other areas of service. If you have a prayer request, please submit that information in the form below. If you would like to know more about opportunities for service, see further down.
Opportunities for service for those 18 and up already out of high school:
Altar Prayer – those with a heart to pray for those drawn to the altar during the invitation on Sunday mornings. Need to be former or current deacon or LifeGroup teacher.
Emergency Prayer Chains – Prayer for life/death situations communicated by the church phone tree. Two choices:
- 24/7 Phone Chain – calls received any time day or night as critical needs occur.
- Daytime Phone Chain – will receive calls only between 8a-9p.
God’s 100s – New – small prayer groups with a specific area of passion. These groups support and undergird our BHBC family, staff, church community, nation and the world with Kingdom-focused prayer. These groups will pray together at least one hour monthly at the church. The following groups have already stepped forward:
Preschool; Children; Students - Middle School; Students - High School; Moms in Prayer; Upward; Singles; Grief; Church & Staff; Missions; and Community, Nation & the World.
If you have a passion for a group not already listed, please let us know.
