Prayer
Operation Transformation will be starting a new Prayer Initiative. We believe in the power of prayer, and that God hears our prayers and answers them. The Bible says “The prayer of righteous people avail much”, because “God is an ever present help in time of need”! 

Our country (and world) are going through a time of crisis due to the covid-19 virus. Our way to respond is to follow government guidelines, AND PRAY. We do believe in the power of prayer and ask for others to join us in this unprecedented time in our nation.

People who have prayer needs or requests of any kind are encouraged to submit them on the OT website – www.optrans.org . The requests will be prayed for by the OT staff and prayer partners each week. 

OT is also asking for others to pray for these requests. Those who would like to be Prayer Partners can sign up at the Operation Transformation website and view the requests that need prayer support. We are in this fight together! We do not want to live in fear…our hope is in the Lord.

Churches throughout our community are also coming together in prayer though conference calls. Feel free to join in. Find the list on Blue Water Area Churches' website.

Some churches around the county are ringing their bells at Noon and praying at that time. Feel free to also join in!
