There are several opportunities for prayer as the 29th General Assembly continues.
The Board of General Superintendents emphasized the importance of prayer by asking Nazarenes around the world to set aside every Friday afternoon — from 24 March through 23 June — as a time of fasting and prayer for General Assembly 2017 and to pray daily during the assembly, Sunday 25 June through Thursday 29 June.
The words of Phineas F. Bresee, the denomination’s first general superintendent, remain true today: “These are days that call for Spirit-filled men and women who pray in the Holy Ghost and expect and receive great things from God.”
A Concert of Prayer was held prior to the opening General Assembly business session in Halls ABC from 8:00 to 8:15 a.m. Monday 26 June.
Two other locations were set aside for prayer. The 24/7 Prayer Room, located in the Westin Hotel, is available through 28 June for private prayer. Each evening, from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m., there will be a time of corporate prayer.
Show Office 1 on the second floor of the Indiana Convention Center will be open Monday until 10 p.m. The room includes Bibles in multiple languages, a basket to leave prayer requests, specific prayer topics from the Board of General Superintendents, and a historic altar used by Phineas Bresee at camp meetings in 1904 and 1905.
