At Osborne Baptist Church, we believe prayer is a big deal. In April 2018, we began a church-wide 40-day prayer campaign with an emphasis on deepening our prayer lives and drawing people closer to God through prayer. Our main goals were to help people understand how to pray, what to pray for, and encourage them to actually pray more! We live in a digital world where everything is connected and accessible at the touch of a finger and in order to give our people valuable prayer tools we knew they would use, we had to turn to digital solutions.
