ACTS 4:32 Ministry Launched February 1. We have launched a special emphasis on prayer beginning February 1. In the Book of Acts we are told that “All the believers were one in heart and mind.” We want to spend a moment each day in this type of unity. To participate in this ministry is very simple.
1. Set your phone, your iPad, your watch, your computer, or even your alarm clock
To ring each day at 4:32 PM.
2. Check our New Hope Website where the Prayer Request of the Day will be listed.
3.When your alarm goes off….pray for that request.
It’s that simple. But imagine for one minute out of every day we will all be united in heart and mind as we pray together. How beautiful and amazing will that be!
You will notice in the chair pockets blue prayer slips. If you would like to include someone in the prayers of the community during worship this morning please place their name on the prayer slip and pass it to the center aisle. During the playing of “Come Now Is the Time to Worship” the slips will be collected by the Ushers and given to Pastor. PLEASE WRITE LEGIBLY!!
