Pray with Us

"Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them." — John Calvin 

  • Pray for GPTS student and resident information technology specialist Bill Hill, who is experiencing debilitating back pain and meeting resistance from his insurance provider to receive necessary diagnostic tests.
  • Pray that new Office Manager Doug Watson and his wife will be able to sell their house in Pennsylvania quickly and complete their move to South Carolina.
  • Ask God for the presence of His Spirit in all the instruction and learning at GPTS this Fall semester, that professors and students alike would be faithful and steadfast in their commitment to the truth of God's Word.
  • Pray that God will abundantly supply the seminary's financial needs and bless and prosper all those who may be led to give in support of this work in God's Kingdom.
  • Ask God to bless, enrich and refresh Dr. Pipa during his teaching sabbatical.
