Welcome To Our Website
Prayer Baptist Church is a fundamental King James Bible believing Baptist Church. We hope that you will come to know God personally, and that you will gain a family of friends that truly cares for you and your family.
As you browse through our site it is our hope that you would come to sense that we are a friendly, loving people. We desire to grow in our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His church. It is my conviction that when you participate in the ministry at Prayer Baptist Church you would sense the same.
The information at our site is always a work in progress. Nothing can take the place of being in one of our services and being a part of an old-fashioned friendly church. So, whether you are browsing our site for the first time, checking us out again, or are already part of the Prayer Baptist Church family, welcome, and may God bless you.
Pastor and Mary Bartlett
My wife, Mary, and I have been married over 40 years. God led us to Prayer Baptist over 30 years ago. It’s been an exciting journey as we have attempted to honor the LORD by ministering to this portion of His flock in western Wayne County. My goal is to preach the whole counsel of God rightly divided and to bring folks to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. We want to teach believers how to live for the LORD. Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.” That is true in every area of life. “Come thou with us and we will do thee good. “
Our Volunteer Staff
The most important part of our church are the volunteers who teach the Sunday school classes and junior church, work in the nursery, drive the van, maintain the building and grounds, man the sound system, sing in the choir, play musical instruments and provide special music, &c. The ministry at Prayer would be impossible without them. Thank God for our volunteers.
is foundational to believers, congregations and ministries. In John 17, Jesus models a life of Kingdom prayer with a focus on His Father, eternal life and the surrendered life.
The Office of Prayer is a resource for Kingdom prayer that focuses on evangelization and spiritual awakening. You will find prayer resources, events, strategies and ministries that relate to personal, congregational and Kingdom expressions of prayer.
Our prayer is that the Office of Prayer for Evangelization and Spiritual Awakening will assist you as you make Kingdom prayer a priority in your life and ministry.
Would you like to adapt the prayer gathering from the 2017 Annual Meeting and use it in your church for a special service? All the resources including PowerPoint slides, music and bookmark are available here. Below you will also see a few of the resources for download.
Many offertory prayers include an invitation to the offering. Whether you are rejoicing in the resurrection of the Lord or giving support to your local church, here is a look at some great prayers for tithes and offerings.
Father in Heaven, We thank You today for Your blessings that you bestow upon us all. Father, I pray for our congregation today. Lord, may we all give with gladness and sincerity. Father, no one ever gives a present to someone with reluctance and we should never give You what already belongs to You with reluctance either. Bless these tithes and offerings this day. We love You, Father! Amen
O Lord, We thank You for Your steadfast love and mercy on us. Father, we believe that every word in the Bible was breathed out by You (2 Tim 3:16), and we believe Your promise that You will bless us when we are obedient to Your Word. And so, without hesitation, we gladly give to You what is Yours. Bless these tithes and offerings, Father. We love You, Lord! Amen
We thank You for bringing us all to Your house safely today and we are so blessed by Your presence here today. Thank You for Your love and mercy on us, Father. Father, we believe in the Book of Proverbs and I pray that everyone here will look into their hearts and act in obedience to Your Word. May we give not to become richer, though, may we give because we simply love You! Accept these tithes and offerings today. We love You, Lord! Amen
We praise Your Almighty Name! You have blessed our nation with immense wealth and opportunity. Lord, You have commanded us to honor You with our wealth, and I pray that You will be honored greatly this day as we give to You what is already Yours. Bless these cheerful givers and bless the tithes and offerings that they give. We love You! Amen
O Lord, There are some of us here today that didn’t want to come here. There are some of us today that will give to the offering with bitter hearts. Father, I pray You will soften the hearts of those who are worried about giving You their money instead of spending it on themselves. Father, I pray that You will bless all who give today and show them Your love in a mighty way because of their obedience. Bless these tithes and offerings, Father. We love You! Amen
Father, We come to Your throne with humble hearts as we are so thankful for the blessings You give us daily. Lord, We believe in the Book of Leviticus. Father, I pray that as we give You our offerings and tithes this morning that we all will think about the fact that the tithe is Yours. It belongs to You. May we never withhold what is Yours. Please accept these offerings and tithes with gladness, Lord. We Love You! Amen
Dear Lord, We thank You for another chance for us to meet together in Your house to worship You. Father, we believe in the Book of 1 Corinthians and I pray that all offerings given today are out of love. We experience Your blessings every day and Your blessings are always given to us freely and with ultimate love. Father, You loved us all of the way to the cross! May we love You enough to give You what is already Yours. Bless these tithes and offerings today. We love you! Amen
Lord, we thank for Your faithfulness.
Thank you that we can always trust in You.
You are an abundant God and out of Your great mercy you have given us so much.
We give you this offering today.
With it we worship You and give our whole selves to You.
Please now take it and use it for Your kingdom and Your glory.
Extend and multiple its reach and influence we pray.
May it be a great blessing to many.
We ask all this in the powerful name of Jesus.
O my God ! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits ; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.
O my God! I ask thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in Heaven for all Eternity. Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings and I thank you that as I give tithes and offerings, I am believing the Lord for:
Jobs and better jobs, raises and bonuses, benefits, sales and commissions, favorable settlements, estates and inheritances, interest and income, rebates and returns, discounts and dividends,
checks in the mail, gifts and surprises, finding money, bills decreased and bills paid off, blessings and increase.
Thank you Lord for meeting my financial needs that I may have more than enough to give into the kingdom of God and promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Raise your hand and say, “It’s true, it’s for me, and I’m a giver. God has given to me and I am not limited by the world’s economy. Heaven’s economy is mine.”
Thank you Lord for your many blessings. They come in from every direction and I bless the name of the Lord Jesus who made it possible for me to return to what God intended me to be;
full of authority through His name and very blessed.
Thank you Lord, in Jesus’ name.
