Pastors call 2nd prayer meeting for revival comment (0)
December 12, 2013
ATLANTA — Building from a prayer gathering of senior pastors this fall in Dallas, a group of Southern Baptist pastors is inviting pastors, other ministers and ministry students to participate in a two-day prayer meeting Jan. 13–14 in Atlanta.
Labeled “A Call to Pray for Revival and Awakening,” the gathering “is time for us to pray in an extraordinary way, to seek the God of heaven to revive His church and awaken our nation,” said Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church in northwest Arkansas.
Floyd, a primary organizer of a 42-member invitation team, announced the gathering on the meeting’s website, praying-pastors.com. Information about the gathering at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel also is being disseminated via Twitter using the hashtag #prayingpastors.
There is no cost to attend the prayer gathering, but all attendees must register through the website and are responsible for their own travel and hotel costs.
The meeting will involve ministers who “are desperate for a move of God in our churches and in our nation,” Floyd said. “They realize to penetrate their towns, cities and our nation, God will have to empower a mighty movement of revival in the church so we can see spiritual awakening in our nation.”
