SURELY REVIVAL DELAYS BECAUSE PRAYER DECAY
“What an unforgettable experience at Truett Camp during the NC Baptist Prayer Summit! God used a powerful prayer testimony given by Rev. Fred Lunsford to radically change my prayer life. God gripped my heart that day and I haven’t been the same since. I can’t wait until the next Prayer Summit!”
“Say to the wind, thus saith the Lord God, come from the four winds, o breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”
Pastor, First Baptist Church
Mel Blackaby is the Sr. Pastor of First Baptist Jonesboro. He has strong convictions God’s great salvation is intensely personal, but it was never meant to be private. That is why he challenges every believer to live out his or her faith within the family of God and before a watching world.
Prayer and a serious study of God’s Word are two points of emphasis he has for his church. We are excited for him to share those same points with us during the Prayer Summit.
