What is the local church prayer initiative?
From the place of prayer, GHOP's leadership felt led to start a strategic initiative to mobilize targeted prayer for local churches in our region. We plan to accomplish this through monthly prayer gatherings, weekly text and voice message directives, social media platforms, and small group gatherings.
Ultimately, we are asking God to "Remember Greenville" by praying and mobilizing the church to offer specific prayers for 4 different local churches each month. If you would like to include a local church in this initiative please contact us.
Why HAVE a Local Church Prayer Initiative?
We know that Jesus desires for His church to be in perfect unity and to love each other with His perfect love (Jn. 17:20-23). One way for this to be accomplished is through prayer for one another. It's been said that you cannot genuinely pray for someone without growing in love for them. We believe this to be true and therefore want to see more believers and churches praying for one another in our city.
What might God do if the Body of Christ in our region agreed in consistent, focused prayer for its local churches? What if pastors & leaders committed to pray more for one another? What could happen if saints from various local churches prayed not only for their own churches and leaders but also for others?
We believe that God might hear and answer our prayers and that it would result in greater love and unity in the body of Christ.

- That they may experience Revival spurring them on to Good works.
Pray for the pastors, staff and congregation. Pray for the families and marriages. Ultimately, pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.
