SED and Prayer

n the Southeastern District we “walk together,” encouraged by St. Paul’s words to the Philippian congregation – “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now.” (1:3-5) We share this prayer-filled partnership through which God is glorified and His mission is accomplished among us. The New Testament church reminds us that what gives life and energy to our mission and ministry are the Holy Spirit and our connection to God through prayer. In Acts we are told that those who gathered in the upper room following Jesus’ ascension “were devoting themselves to prayer.” (Acts 1:14) In fact, prayer is one of the four foundation blocks of the early church. (Acts. 2:42)

The goals of these prayer web pages are to support individuals and congregations in the knowledge and practice of prayer.  We offer these resources as a way of deepening your walk with God and with each other.

We have established a Southeastern District Spiritual Life Team, which is available to teach, facilitate retreats, and accompany those congregations wishing to expand their prayer life. Deaconess Robie Hillhouse is serving as the Director of the Spiritual Life Team.

Spiritual Life Team – The mission of this dedicated team is “to ignite  and be a catalyst for spiritual renewal within the Southeastern District.”  Team members are  available to serve congregations by facilitating retreats, coaching prayer teams, and developing prayer resources. We are here assist church workers, leaders, and congregations in their spiritual journeys so that they be transformed and joyfully give witness to the love of Christ.
