Be joyful always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

One of the defining characteristics of Central Baptist Church is that we believe in the power of prayer! This is evidenced by the Intercessory Prayer Ministry, one of our longest-running and successful ministries.

In February 1989, under Pastor Wallace Watkins, CBC began this ministry. To train the first volunteers, Mrs. Dottie Dee Floyd, coordinator of a similar ministry at Houston’s Tallowood Baptist Church, was brought to Central to lead the organization of the prayer ministry.

We consider it a privilege and blessing to serve God in this way. We have received hundreds of notes from people whose lives have been touched by prayer. In the twenty-plus years since the beginning of this ministry, we have offered prayers and mailed prayergrams to thousands of people around the world.

Many of the original intercessors are still serving in the ministry, many more volunteers are needed to meet the goal of answering Central’s prayer line twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week. Many hours are available for you to choose from, and training is provided.

We encourage all our members to prayerfully consider joining us in this vital ministry. To volunteer, call the church office at 903-935-9391.

And remember, God answers prayer!
