A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
On March 11, 2018, my church had a Missionary Conference, which was coordinated by our church's Missions Committee. I am on that committee, and can say that everyone working made this conference possible. The whole committee worked very hard. The conference was a blessing to the whole church.
I believe that the following was extremely important to the success of this Missionary Conference: One member of the committee was not able to…Continue
Recently, my church’s pastor resigned, putting us into the position of having to search for a new pastor to lead the church. A pulpit committee has been formed, and it is following the pattern of the Tennessee Baptist group that recommends having a Pray Chairman.

We are working on format of the questions—I.E.—Initial interview, Written Questions to follow-ups, and a second Interview.
Being the Prayer Chairman of the…Continue

The work of Wheatland Ministries involves research in learning how to best pray and be involved in intercessory prayer.
I am currently reading the book the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. In it he identifies 3 spirits affecting our nation, which are the spirits of Defiance, Pride, and Arrogance. I mention them, because we seen many saying we need to repent--and that is in scripture--but there is a question--do we know what we are repenting of?--especially as a nation.…

Recently, I came across an article in the Connector, published by Intercessors for America. It was titled ‘A Warning from Macedonia’. Some of you, who have are on the Intercessors for America mailing list, may have seen it.
It raises an interesting question—are we trying to view control—possibly by encouraging adherence to our particular belief by a political candidate or party as the answer to our…Continue
Praying Into Another Person’s Vision-an act of Love and Friendship
We live in a highly individualistic society—which carries over into our prayer life—many of us pray alone—and we justify that by showing in the Bible various occasions where Christ went and prayed alone.—We also look at the prayer closet (Matthew 6: 6)—as reason to pray alone.…Continue

Last March, I went on a prayer journey to my parents home county, and prayed over areas where my family had connection. It was both a prayer of repentance and also about good things that I knew. When you confess sin, prayer is not easy.--Important point. One place I prayed, had been the house of a Lady of Prayer, which was on the property of a former school that my Great great Grandfather had written the charter to. Prayer at that place was the easiest.
Now what is…Continue

I am looking for VBS lessons that teach prayer to children. I have found some helpful material, but am looking for actual VBS lessons that teach prayer to our children.

The VBS director at my church has requested me to help, and wants 4 short lessons on prayer (5 minutes) then the prayer activity is for each child to place a prayer on a prayer wall for…Continue
