the World Around

We believe in the power of prayer at First Baptist Harlan and are committed to praying for our church, our community, our state, our nation and our world.  We are particularly focused on Prayer during this Covid-19 Pandemic. Our prayer team members are working to schedule events and ways for our community to stay connected in prayer. In addition to opportunities for Corporate Prayer, we have a Prayer Warrior Network of prayer partners committed to praying for specific prayer requests, always respecting the confidence and privacy of the requestors.

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 says "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
