General Conference 2008: Call to Prayer

From The Central Texas Hospitality Team:

To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Welcome to our prayer site for General Conference. Please join us in prayer, wherever you are. We on the General Conference Hosting Committee Prayer Ministries Team invite you to pray daily for General Conference 2008 with hopes that “Christ may dwell in [our] hearts through faith,” and all we do may be “rooted and grounded in love” (Ephesians 3:17).

Below you will find links to prayer booklets and other resources that we hope will connect all of us through God’s love during this important time, wherever we may be. We pray that this is a time the church will be filled with the Holy Spirit and that our roots may be deepened through Holy Listening, Holy Conversation, and Holy Conferencing.

In Christ,
Rev. Len Delony and the Prayer Ministries Team
of the General Conference Hosting Committee
