AnnouncingPastors-banner1It is time to call out to God for the next Great Awakening and to reach the world for Christ. On Tuesday night, June 16, we will give the entire evening session of the SBC Annual Meeting to this national prayer gathering.

We will join together in the same room and around the world via technology for this one epic night of prayer. Plan now to adjust your dinner or fellowship to before this session or gather with friends after the session itself. Please let NOTHING keep you from this extraordinary night of prayer together.

What We Will Do Together

We will gather to experience the presence of God based upon the Word of God. We will be challenged briefly by some of America’s great pastors, then launch into prayer sessions in response to God and His Word. We will also express our worship and praise to God together through music and singing.

One of the unique moments of the evening will be when we embrace and celebrate our ethnic diversity, which may also involve moments of repentance and reconciliation. Each of us needs to be in this experience together, letting God do a powerful work in each of our lives and churches. Southern Baptists must lead the way in embracing and celebrating our ethnic diversity.

There is so much I believe God wants us to share and pray about on this evening. Pastors and church leaders, come to Columbus! Do not miss this night. If you live within driving distance of Columbus, Ohio, and can’t attend the entire conference, at least come for Tuesday night.

Please Pray for These Pastors Who Will Join Me in Leading This Historic Gathering

While there will be many others involved in offering prayers during the gathering, these men will help us lead the evening. Pray for each of us, and being praying for this upcoming night.


Yours for the Great Commission,

Ronnie W. Floyd

This Week at Cross Church | When the Resurrected Christ Shows Up

BlazeOfGlory-blogThis Sunday, we will conclude our current series, Passion Week and Beyond. We will be teaching Luke 24:36-53. From this exciting passage, we will talk about what happened then and what happens now When the Resurrected Christ Shows Up. This is one exciting passage and is a great follow-up to our message from this past Sunday, Hearts Ablaze! I hope you will watch it before Sunday if you were not with us last week.

A National Call to Pray

I want to call your personal attention to a whole new season of intentional prayer for our upcoming Southern Baptist Convention meeting. While any church is allowed no more than ten voting messengers, any person can attend a Southern Baptist Convention.

Please give attention to my article from this past Monday, A National Call for Prayer to All Southern Baptists for the Next Great Awakening and to Reach the World for Christ. This article tells you about the details of our Tuesday night session, which is dedicated in its entirety to a major national prayer gathering. Our hope and prayer is that this will become a major catalyst for the next Great Awakening in America. We need Jesus to show up in His power and glory!

How You Can Begin to Pray Now

As you look at the information contained in the article linked above, you can begin to pray for:

  • Pray for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit of God to fall upon this gathering, as well as any audience that joins us via Internet or other media. 
  • Pray for these men and leaders by name daily.
  • Join us for a day of fasting and prayer in May – our team will determine details soon and communicate with you.
  • Pray for me and all of our team who will assist not only publicly, but privately to insure this happens by the plan God is putting in our hearts.


Thank you, church family for joining us in prayer.

Yours for the Great Commission,

Ronnie W. Floyd
