SIG Alert!

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 27 – John 17.24: Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am.

  1. Pray that we will be in the same obedient relationship to the Father in which Jesus was, and so be able to pray in complete accordance with the will of the Father as Jesus did.
  2. Pray for Good Community Church of Torrance, their pastor Dr. David Kim, his wife and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for Vermont Avenue Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Lance Boloran, his family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Wilmington, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that God will transform our sinful cities, cleansing first our own lives and minds from the inside out, and then cleansing those of the people in the 31 cities of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association area.
