BGS: General Assembly prayer opportunities

BGS: General Assembly prayer opportunities

by | 09 Jun, 2017

There are numerous opportunities for prayer during the 29th General Assembly and Conventions as thousands of Nazarenes gather in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, for times of fellowship, training, worship, and business.

The Board of General Superintendents emphasized the importance of prayer for this event 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.”

Before each service, visitors and delegates are encouraged to gather for the Pre-Service Concerts of Prayer. These times of guided intercession will begin precisely 30 minutes prior to each service and last 15 minutes.

The Concerts of Prayer will be held in the same location as the services — Halls HIJK — on the left-hand side of the auditorium near the stage.

Times are as follows:

  • Thursday 22 June, 6:30 to 6:45 p.m.
  • Friday 23 June, 6:30 to 6:45 p.m.
  • Saturday 24 June, 6:30 to 6:45 p.m.
  • Sunday 25 June, 9:30 to 9:45 a.m. | 3:30 to 3:45 p.m.

The final Concert of Prayer will be 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 have been set aside for prayer. The 24/7 Prayer Room, located in the Westin Hotel Senate I, II, III, will be available 21-28 June for private prayer. Each evening, from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m., there will be a time of corporate prayer. From 21-26 June, Hal Perkins will lead a morning devotional from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. in the Westin.

In the Indiana Convention Center, Show Office 1 on the second floor will be open 21-26 June from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The room will include 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.
