Southern Baptist PrayerLink

Mission: PrayerLink is a network of Southern Baptist prayer leaders which seeks to foster a culture of Kingdom-focused prayer toward revival and spiritual awakening throughout SBC life and beyond.

Four Functions

The PrayerLink Community/Network seeks to accomplish its mission through four functions:

1) Pray

Foster “one-accord” prayer experiences and a praying culture within the PrayerLink community and beyond.

2) Connect

Identify, embrace, develop and/or network SBC prayer leaders with the PrayerLink community and beyond.

3) Resource

Provide a forum where prayer resources, initiatives, ideas and stories are displayed and shared with the intent of supporting prayer leaders as they mobilize strategic kingdom-focused intercession throughout the SBC and beyond. See our resources.

4) Serve

Serve the PrayerLink network, annual PrayerLink gathering/forum, and SBC prayer leaders through the administration and facilitation of PrayerLink meetings, prayer gatherings and collaborative SBC related prayer initiatives and efforts.
