TUESDAY NOON BIBLE STUDY FOR WOMEN

Please join us and bring a friend. Lunch is served beginning at 11:30, and the Bible Study will begin at 12:00 noon in the Fellowship Hall Downtown.

Do you ever long for a more effective prayer life?

Beginning August 1, we will be studying The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz

In this six-session video Bible study, Anne looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9. Unlike the everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer, this is a prayer birthed under pressure.   A prayer in which the pray-ers return to the Cross and repent of sin. A prayer that changes hearts and nations–even in our world today. The study will run through the month of August, concluding on August 29th.

For more information, please contact Ruthie Estes at 832-668-1861 or restes@fmhouston.com
