Lo­cal churches join in prayer

The Covington News - - Religion - GABRIEL KHOULI Staff Re­porter

Sev­eral New­ton County churches are par­tic­i­pat­ing in a prayer con­fer­ence Fri­day and Satur­day de­signed to unite the lo­cal faith com­mu­nity in pray­ing for spir­i­tual awak­en­ing.

“Sim­ply put, the fo­cus is try­ing to get all the faith com­mu­nity to­gether to pray for spir­i­tual awak­en­ing,” said Charles Reynolds, church ad­min­is­tra­tor at First Bap­tist Church. “We’re look­ing for spir­i­tual awak­en­ing in New­ton County, Ge­or­gia and across the U.S.; it’s al­ready started in Louisiana. We’re say­ing that if the faith com­mu­nity works to­gether and seeks God’s will, he can pro­vide heal­ing.”

The prayer con­fer­ence will cost $10 per per­son, which in­cludes two books writ­ten by Ken Hem­phill, who will lead the prayer con­fer­ence.

The con­fer­ences are from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Fri­day and from 9 a.m. to noon Satur­day at First Bap­tist Church. Tick­ets are avail­able at First Bap­tist Church or by reg­is­ter­ing on­line at first­bap­tist­cov­ing­ton. com.

Reynolds said Hem­phill will teach but much of the time will be de­voted to prac­ti­cal prayer ex­er­cises.

The idea is to get peo­ple to look for “king­dom mo­ments” in their lives, mo­ments that fur­ther the king­dom of God, ac­cord­ing to notes from Hem­phill.
