Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) President J.D. Greear led the third and final Wednesday sessions of focused prayer for the 2021 SBC annual meeting June 9.
Greear, who is pastor of The Summit Church in Durham, N.C., issued a call for all Southern Baptists to pray and fast in the weeks leading up to the meeting June 15-16 in Nashville.
The 30-minute time of prayer focused on the three areas Greear has highlighted – Great Commission mobilization, unity in the gospel and the Holy Spirit’s anointing on the meeting.
Greear was joined on the call by three SBC leaders who each prayed for specific areas – Katie McCoy, assistant professor of theology in women’s studies at Texas Baptist College; Marshal Ausberry, pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Fairfax Station, Va., and SBC first vice president; and Ronnie Floyd, president and CEO of the SBC Executive Committee.
