Special Call to Prayer

Special call to prayer from SBC President J.D. Greear

With the announcement of Dr. Kelly’s retirement from New Orleans Seminary, there are currently five (5) SBC entities searching for a new leader. In light of this reality, SBC President, Dr. J.D. Greear, has asked all Southern Baptists to join him in day of prayer and fasting on Monday, October 8. Specifically he requests we pray:

  • For wisdom for the search committee in assessing what is needed most for effective ministry in the 21st century
  • For boldness for the search committee in asking the difficult questions
  • For loving-kindness for the search committee as they interact with one another
  • For favor, that God’s face would shine upon us as a people—not for our sake, but that Jesus’ name would be known to the ends of the earth.

I know Louisiana Baptists will gladly join him, and our brothers and sisters across the country, in bringing these requests before our heavenly Father.

Thank you Louisiana Baptists for your prayers and participation.
