2023 2023 ASSOCIATIONAL PRAYER CALENDAR - HOLMES BAPTIST ASSOCIATION The Associational Prayer Calendar encourages prayer throughout the congregations of the Holmes Baptist Association for the following purposes:
□ To pray for our churches and leadership □ To pray for the work of the Association □ To pray for various mission and ministry efforts of the Association, the Florida Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention □ To pray for Revival and Spiritual Awakening in America.
Each church is encouraged to list these weekly prayer concerns in their church bulletin or other publication. In doing so, every church will be praying in unison for the specific needs as listed. Therefore, each need will experience the joy of the intercessory prayers of fellow believers.
