Night of Prayer and Fasting
Sunday, January 25, 2015
First Southern Baptist Church, Del City, OK
Dr. Anthony Jordan and Dr. Gregory Frizzell encourage all believers to be part of this special time of worship and prayer on the night prior to our Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference. For those in the mid-state region, please consider transferring your evening service on January 25, 2015 to First Southern, Del City.
If you are not close to the center of our state, we encourage you to have a special night of prayer and praise in your own church or association. To assist you, please contact our office for suggested prayer meeting formats that can be used in conducting a service for your church or association. May God find Oklahoma Baptists on our knees as we seek His face together.

January 4-25, 2015 – Twenty-One Days of Repentance
As prayer meetings and revival emphases increase, there is one crucial truth to remember. If prayer does not include deep repentance and lasting covenants to change, God is not obligated to hear. In Isaiah 1:15, the Lord told His people “though you multiply your prayers, I will not hear.” After a forty-five year prayer movement and yet the worst spiritual collapse in history, it is clear that God is not much moved by general prayers and surface shows of repentance. Yet there is good news. There does seem to be a different level of seriousness about recent growing prayer meetings!
To aid and facilitate a genuine return to God, the BGCO Office of Prayer offers two Scripture-filled tools. First, the book Return to Me-Says the Lord is a twenty-one day journey of fervent prayer and spiritual renewal. It is powerful for individual and/or church-wide use. Second, the Covenants to Seek God’s Face are five Bible-insert prayer guides to help believers walk in powerful daily prayer, deep surrender and effective prayer for evangelism and spiritual awakening. Both tools are inexpensive and can be used for ongoing prayer meetings and empowered evangelism. Please contact our office (405-942-3800, x4517 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance with these resources.
