Watchmen on the Walls

We have begun to get commitments for prayer “watches” in the Prayer Room or in the “virtual” (anywhere on campus or around the world) prayer room.

Praying

A week ago in our Team Bethany Chapel I laid out the basics of our Bethany Prayer Room vision. The Prayer Room is a place where we can corporately grow in a lifestyle of intimacy with and love for God. It is out of this that all other service flows; seeing God’s purposes established on […]
