Recommended Prayer Resource

Just a quick post to recommend that our SMSC friends review https://www.prayerpowerministries.com/  as a great resource for you, your church, and your ministry in 2014 and beyond.  You can also follow Prayer Power Ministries and Jim and Kaye Johns on facebook.  If you believe, as we do, that prayer is the most powerful resource that a Christian has, you will definitely enjoy the downloads from this site and the reasonable prices for resources!

From their “About” Page:  In 1994, Jim and Kaye Johns left lifetime careers to launch and devote full time to PrayerPower. Kaye was president of a nonprofit teacher-training organization and had achieved recognition as producer and host of a nationally syndicated radio program. Jim was owner of a full-service advertising agency and had served in various capacities in broadcasting organizations in Texas, Oklahoma, and Utah….
They have traveled extensively throughout the United States and on four continents, conducting prayer conferences, seminars and retreats. Their ministry includes a daily PrayerPower radio program, now available in text and audio formats through this website. Also available here: Prayer Journals and Prayer Guides for individuals, churches and parachurch ministries. All are designed to encourage the use of Scripture in personal and corporate prayer.
