Prayer at First

Welcome to the new prayer page for First Baptist Church! If you are looking for the live stream prayer meeting, please keep scrolling down. We invite you to explore this page and discover the new tools that we have for our church family to be connected through prayer to each other and to the Lord. Here you can submit prayer requests and view requests of others. Let them know that you are praying for them by clicking the “I prayed for this” button.

We believe that prayer is the most powerful and effective thing that we can do in order to see change in our circumstances, others, and our world. Let’s lift each other up and and share our requests and praises here.

After submitting your request, it will be moderated and posted after moderation. Requests posted on weekends or holidays may experience some delays in posting.

Private requests will only be shared with our prayer team and will remain confidential.

Greetings from Athens, Greece. We hope you had a fantastic Easter! This coming Sunday is Greek Easter and we are looking forward to celebrating with friends. This prayer request is for tomorrow. For the first time in nearly two years there will be an outside pastor allowed into the nursing home. I began working on having a Good Friday-Easter Sunday communion service during Holy Week. The leadership was convinced and with appropriate Covid precautions in place, we will have the service tomorrow. The visiting pastor is our pastor here in Athens. He fit us in although he has to conduct a Bible study/prayer meeting this evening, then preach both Friday and Sunday. Please pray for George and for my dear senior adults at the nursing home. They are excited about this special service. Keep praying for us also as we labor here, I at the nursing home and Lee Ann with the downtown homeless ministry.

Love in Jesus,

Randy and Lee Ann (in Athens)

Please pray for my son as he interviewed for a position at the Bible Book Store but has not heard back. He desperately needs this job and with God’s grace, I pray he gets it.

Please pray for my sister and her husband. She turned 54 yesterday and for the last few years has chosen to live on the streets. I’m sure drugs are involved. She talks to everyone she meets. She’s made “friends” who check on her. Pray she meets someone and she opens her eyes. She is on disability. She has 3 adult kids and one grandchild.

Update for Tammie Fleming. Three weeks ago, she had to be rushed to ER for severe abdominal pain. They found a bowel obstruction caused by old scar tissue & did emergency surgery that afternoon. She is now ready to be discharged & will be going home with one of her daughters.

I don’t have news about the cancer yet because her doctor says the radiation keeps on working for 2 or 3 months even after treatment stops. At some point, he will order a new MRI & we will have information on the tumor.

Your prayers are very much appreciated by her & everyone in her family. Right now, we are praying she will hang in there & get her strength back. She also needs prayer for her state of mind, as she is very down and seems to have given up hope.
