Church Announcement: African Baptists To Pray For Ebola Crisis!
The All-Africa Baptist Fellowship sets aside Sunday, Oct. 12, to focus prayer on the Ebola outbreak, which to date has claimed more than 3,000 lives across West Africa. The prayer focus, endorsed by leaders of American Baptist Churches USA and the North American Baptist Fellowship, aims to create awareness of the deadly Ebola virus and ask God for divine intervention to stop epidemics raging in some countries, prevent their spread to others, “sanctify” medications given to patients to speed up healing and protect the lives of health workers and other care givers. The call to prayer spans two days because some NABF member bodies worship on Saturday. The All-Africa Baptist Fellowship is one of six regions of the Baptist World Alliance. It represents more than 10 million Baptists in Africa and more than 50 member bodies, including conventions, unions, churches and institutions. Source: The Baptist Standard
