"God has called Lowell Snow to help our churches become houses of prayer. We have houses of biblical preaching, houses of inspirational music, and houses of warm fellowship, but few houses of prayer. His insight and practical, though deeply spiritual, approach to prayer can revitalize our corporate and private worship experiences. I commend to you the ministry and calling of Bro. Lowell Snow." Harry Black - Past president, Arkansas Baptist State Convention
What a blessing! Lowell is a gifted communicator. His messages have been birthed in the context of an extended, local church pastorate. His messages are practical, Biblical and helpful. Perhaps best of all, God uses him to lead individuals within the church to make commitments that will be impacting our church for years to come. Don Moore, Former Executive Director, Arkansas Baptist Convention
Let me share with you a few reasons why this conference is something that you should prayerfully consider. First, Bro. Lowell is thoroughly Biblical in his timely call to the church to be a house of prayer and to believers to be active in private and public prayer. He is not guided by personal opinions and philosophies but by the Word of God. Second, Bro. Lowell is extremely well organized in the pre-conference instructions as well as in his presentation during the conference. Once he is in your church, you will find that he has prepared his heart and his messages before the Lord. Jason Noel, pastor, East Side Baptist Church, Paragould, AR
This is one of five weekends in the Church Renewal Journey sponsored by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Your church does not have to commit to all five weekends to host the prayer weekend.
The teaching sessions in the Prayer Empowering Weekend are written by Lowell Snow and parallel sessions in the Journey Into the Presence of God conference above. There are four options for leading them:
- One of the visiting volunteer team members can teach the sessions.
- The pastor of the hosting church can teach the sessions using the free materials provided.
- DVDs of Lowell Snow provided with the materials can be used as video sessions.
- The church can host Lowell Snow to come and teach the sessions. (honorarium involved)
This is a Lay Renewal Weekend. Laymen in the hosting church make the preparations and a team of laymen from other cities volunteer their time to come and lead the conference.
This video is a promotion for all Lay Renewal Weekends but gives you an idea of what the Prayer Empowering Weekend would be like in your church.
