“A Call to Prayer for Bishop Thomas L. Hoyt, Jr.”

The Connectional Prayer Ministry of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church is calling all members and friends to join together in prayer for Senior Bishop Thomas L. Hoyt, Jr., who fell ill at the CME Unity Summit in Houston on Sunday night.
We invite all individuals and prayer groups to join us on our new Facebook page, “Prayer ConnectZion,” to pray for Bishop Hoyt, Mrs. Ocie Hoyt and family, the entire College of Bishops, and the CME Church during this critical time.  We also encourage prayer leaders on all local, Presiding Elders district, annual conference, and Episcopal Districts to host prayer conference calls and prayer gatherings across the church. 
Currently, a prayer call has been organized in the Bishop Hoyt’s District for Monday, September 23, 2013 at 12 Noon.  Please join the call at (805) 399-1000, access code #376330.
Please post links to your prayer pages, and feel free to announce any other prayer calls on the “Prayer ConnectZion.”
We offer this prayer on behalf of our beloved Senior Bishop:
“Mighty God, we come thanking You for Your abundant grace, and for the powerful promises You have laid up for us in Jesus Christ.  Because of Your constant faithfulness we are emboldened to pray for great miracles today.  God, we ask for a powerful work of healing for Your servant, Senior Bishop Thomas Lanier Hoyt, Jr., who has been stricken with illness.  We entrust him to Your healing hands, and declare Your promises which tells us by the stripes of Jesus we are healed.  Thank You God now in Jesus’ Mighty Name.  Amen.”
