Is your church in a time of transition, looking for a new pastor?
Mary Ann has consulted with many churches in Houston while they were in transition, and has used this prayer guide extensively for the benefit of the church leaders, staff, and members.
A testimony from Tom Billings, the former Executive Director of the Union Baptist Association:
"Before I became the interim pastor at Lazybrook Baptist Church, I asked the search committee to engage Mary Ann and Pray the Word Ministries to help them strengthen and expand their prayer ministry. I could not have been more pleased with the results. Mary Ann worked closely with the LBC prayer team to develop customized training and materials, provide training to our intercessors and lead a corporate worship service focused on prayer. Every Sunday, prayer guides are distributed to the congregation to guide them as they pray throughout the week.
A testimony from a pastor:
“Times of transition are a challenge for churches. The combination of the unknown and anticipation must lead us to greater faith. May this prayer guide lead you to pray more intelligently and trust more deeply through the transition. I can give first hand testimony of the power of prayer as I came to Houston’s First Baptist as the pastor. God used the prayers of the congregation to shape my heart and the church in order to bring the perfect fit in His perfect timing. Be encouraged and on your knees as God guides you from transition to testimony of His work!” – Pastor Gregg, HFBC
A testimony from a church member:
"Mary Ann agreed to lead our Pastor Search Committee in Prayer Training and Consecration Prayer Training, which culminated in a congregational 'Concert of Prayer.' Hallelujah!! These are a few of the comments from these events: 'Powerful!' '...the Holy Spirit is moving...' 'I was brought to tears…' '...such peace and unity when the body prays together!' '...we sensed the presence of God!'"
