SAN ANTONIO (BP)--Let us pray.
"It's our only hope," Southern Baptist Convention President Frank Page said, reflecting on the prevalence of prayer planned for the SBC's June 12-13 annual meeting in San Antonio's Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
Each of the SBC's five sessions will have a prayer focus:
Tuesday morning: "Lord, Transform Your Churches."
Tuesday afternoon: "Lord, Bring Us to Confession and Repentance."
Tuesday evening: "Lord, Unite Us in a Cooperative Mission Task."
Wednesday morning: "Lord, Send Revival to Our Convention."
Wednesday evening: "Lord, Energize Our Evangelistic Efforts."
