Lifting up prayers

Community to mark National Day of Prayer at noon today as part of week-long prayer vigil for city


First Baptist Church Mineral Wells Senior Pastor Nathan Buchanan was recently asked by the Mineral Wells Ministerial Alliance, “What would happen to our community if the church were on its knees in prayer for every hour of every day for one solid week?”

His response began with one word – revival.

“Prayer is the greatest catalyst for revival,” Buchanan said. “We cannot bring revival to Mineral Wells, but we can call on the Lord to send revival. We can make a difference in what God does in our midst when we join our brothers and sisters on our knees in prayer.”

The Ministerial Alliance met April 3 to discuss a weeklong, 24-hour prayer vigil for the entire city. They decided on April 27, beginning at 8 a.m. to May 4, ending at 8 a.m. Churches were asked to sign up for a day or a half day and to gather enough people to cover their allotted hour-long time slots.

Bethel Baptist Church, Mount Herman Baptist Church, Calvary Baptist Church, Faith Fellowship Chapel, FBC Mineral Wells, Midpoint Chapel, Fairview Baptist Church and Well of Life Church have already done their part. Mineral Wells Church of God, Indian Creek Baptist Church and First Church of the Nazarene will finish out the week.

The week the Mineral Wells Ministerial Alliance decided to pray was no coincidence. The MWMA is also inviting the public to its local National Day of Prayer gathering from noon to 1 p.m. today in the west parking lot of Bank of America.

The program begins at noon with a proclamation from Mayor Mike Allen followed by praying over individuals from our community who represent the seven spheres of influence in our city – government, military, media, business, education, church and family, Mineral Wells National Day of Prayer Coordinator and local pastor Guy Weathers said.
