June 6th, 2010 - Louisiana Baptists, Day Of Prayer Concerning Oil Spill And Upcoming Hurrican Season

The current oil spill is not only causing harm to the coast, marsh lands, the gulf and the future of oil exploration but to the economic future of our state. Men have tried for weeks to stop the flow of oil and to date, all has failed. We need to call on God to stop the flow of oil now. Our God stopped the flow of water for Israel to cross the Red Sea and He can cease the flow of oil from this ruptured well.

The hurricane season is upon us and we need to pray that God will give us a calm year. Jeremiah 29:7 gives instruction to God's people at a time when they are facing crisis... "Seek the peace (Shalom - multifaceted well-being) of the city where I sent you... and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its peace you will have peace (well-being)."

Day Of Prayer - June 6, 2010

  • Pray for God's mercy in dealing with the spill and the hurricanes.

  • Pray for Spiritual Awakening to sweep across our nation.

  • Pray for our Churches and our Pastors to experience revival.

  • Pray for our Louisiana Baptist Convention and all our Institutions.

Pastors, churches, directors of missions, WMU leaders, prayer leaders and LBC employees, would you make June 6 a day to remember? A day when across all our state, churches join in one mighty voice to cry out to God for His intervention and revival. This could be the beginning of an awakening in Louisiana.

Thank you,

Dr. Bill Robertson, Director of Pastoral Leadership

Dr. David Hankins, Executive Director

Dr. Rod Mastellar, LBC President
