Dear FPC,

We can’t believe that our annual Missions Conference is just two weeks away.  We urge you to join us in prayer- that God would do a mighty work in our hearts, in our families, in our church, and around the world.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Harry Reeder as our keynote speaker for the 2021 Missions Conference.  We will explore the theme “To See the Nations Worship” and we will learn how each and every believer of Christ has a part to play in the call to the Great Commission.

This week we encourage you to pray for this missions conference weekend, February 5-7th, 2021.  Pray that the messages we hear from Dr. Reeder and the reports we hear on how the featured missionaries/ministries are seeing God’s word transform lives for His glory.  Pray that these message would also transform our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Gratefully,

April Kitchell

 

Daily Prayers for the 2021 Missions Conference

Monday

  • Pray for the logistics of the conference.  This year we will be having a hybrid conference.  This means Dr. Harry Reeder will be in person speaking, but our missionaries, due to travel restrictions, will be featured through video format.
  • Pray for those leading and speaking at the conference.  Pray God would grant them an extra measure of grace to lead.
  • Pray the Lord would protect those leaders physically and spiritually as they prepare to be a part of the conference.
