Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!


40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."

Day 15 – Matthew 18.19-20: Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.

  1. Pray that not only will we understand the importance and power of secret and solitary prayer, but also the importance and power of public and united prayer.
  2. Pray for Rev. Sung Lee, seaport chaplain at Long Beach Seaport, and his wife Myung and family, the Pacific Seafarer Church he pastors, the other chaplains he has trained, and the ship shepherds he has trained, as they minister to the crew members of tankers, freight, car transports, and bulk ships that come into the seaport.  Pray for chaplains to reach the Los Angeles Seaport.
  3. Pray for the Rhema Word Bible Church, their pastor Rev. Trevor Johnson, his wife Loretta, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Lynwood, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray for courage and God’s protection as we spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Have you ever had a sea fish for a meal?  Interesting how they live surrounded by salt water yet when you eat it you still have to add salt to it!  They never allowed the salt (to) get in them.  We may live in a world of sin and evil, but you don’t have to allow it to get in you!  —Phil Saenz

Pray hardest when it is hardest to pray.  —Toby Mac
