General Conference prayer vigil: March 2 liturgy for Oklahoma
The denomination’s Council of Bishops has invited each annual conference to hold a 24-hour prayer vigil prior to the 2016 General Conference, to create a groundswell of prayer in the days leading up to the mid-May meeting in Portland, Ore.
March 2 is the designated date for Oklahoma Conference United Methodists to pray. The following day, March 3, is assigned to the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference.
At the request of Bishop Robert E. Hayes Jr., retired Oklahoma deacon Ginger Howl has created this liturgy for use by individuals, families, and churches.
