Welcome to the Prayer Ministry Website

“Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.” James 5:16 (The Message)

Prayer in the hand of faith is the KEY that unlocks Heaven’s storehouse.  Our department is committed to helping you develop a stronger key.  In addition, we believe that prayer is the key to finishing the work of God and ushering in the Second Coming of Christ.  The Latter Rain is needed.  The process for obtaining the needed refreshing from the Lord is through prayer.  It is our hope that you can be guided into a more fruitful experience with prayer.

Mission Statement:  The mission of the South Central Conference is to train Prayer Federation Officers and Coordinators to turn their churches into houses of prayer, which will usher in the Latter Rain, so that the gospel work can be finished and Christ can come.


a.      To help every church in the Conference to enhance their prayer focus- to become houses of prayer.
b.      To begin a prayer movement in South Central Conference, that ushers in the Latter Rain and finishes the work.

i.      Every great Revival started with prayer (i.e., the Great Awakening).  We are in the dispensation of the Latter Rain.  God wants to pour out His power, but it won’t happen without a concerted effort of petition.

c.       To recruit and train Prayer WarriorsB to get a Prayer Army for every church and for this Conference.

Motto: “Making Prayer Central in South Central.”
