Unity among the churches

PRAY Mineral Wells invites residents for 24-hours of prayer and worship before the Nov. 6 elections.

Luke 6:12 states that Jesus prayed all night before choosing His leaders. PRAY Mineral Wells encourages all believers to follow His example. On Nov. 2-3 the group will host 24 hours of prayer and worship to seek God for the future of the nation.

PRAY Mineral Wells hosted a similar event in January. Several local worship teams led prayer and worship for the event. In attendance were more than 10 local pastors and at least 13 Mineral Wells churches were represented. Those who participated in the Prayer Capsule in January may pick up their prayers at this event.  Those not collected will be mailed out the following week.

Worship teams interested in leading a two-hour set are encouraged to contact Rose Jordan at (682) 225-3315 soon as the spaces are filling quickly.

For information about PRAY Mineral Wells or future prayer events contact Jordan at the number above, by email at rose@praymineralwells.org, via their Facebook page PRAY Mineral Wells or at www.PrayMineralWells.org.
