"WILL YOU BE A WARRIOR ON THE WALL?"
September 22, 1991
My number one goal as pastor of the fellowship is to see God
raise us up to being a praying people. Prayer operates from
the principle that I believe God is able to do more than me.
Year by year we are becoming more of a praying people.
We presently have three different prayer ministries that some
500 people are involved in: Intercessory Prayer Chapel, God's
300, and our prayer group ministry. As of September 30 these
three ministries will become one known as "Warriors On The

the wall to stand guard for Northwest Arkansa ...
