J.D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), led the second of three Wednesday sessions of focused prayer for the 2021 SBC Annual Meeting yesterday (June 2).
Greear, who is pastor of The Summit Church in Durham, N.C., has 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 – Ronnie Floyd, president and CEO of the SBC Executive Committee; Cheryl Rice, women’s ministry leader at Calvary Church in Clearwater, Fla.; and Edgar Aponte, global missions pastor at Idlewild Baptist Church in Tampa, Fla.
The next and final prayer call will be Wednesday, June 9, at 3 p.m. EDT.
