Pastor Reginald Hayes, 2021 SCBO President, has called Ohio Baptists to “Pray Until God Does Great Exploits Through Us!” in 2021. The challenge comes from Daniel 11:32 “...the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Challenge ’21 encourages Ohio Baptists to pray 21 minutes more daily in 2021. If you are not daily praying, 21 minutes is a great place to start. If you are already praying, consider adding 21 more minutes a day.
We invite you to say, “count me in!” for 21 more minutes of prayer every day in 2021.
You'll receive encouraging emails, new prayer resources, and more! To help you engage with your Creator and Lord in a powerful way in 2021.
ENCOURAGE every Ohio Christ Follower to daily follow this simple, personal Prayer Pattern to continue building a relationship with Jesus.

God usually sends revival on the waves of united, fervent, persistent prayer. The great, known revivals that have left the most indelible marks on past generations grew in the fertile soil of prayer closets and prayer groups and praying churches – often through months and years of cultivation among believers who refused to stop believing that God would hear and respond.
That’s why we are championing a united rhythm of prayer, inspired by what was known centuries ago as ‘concerts of prayer.’ These involved willing individuals and groups who would commit to regular cycles of prayer, which would then spread to other places where people were following a similar schedule. God responds to the surrendered, repentant, expectant hearts of His people, and He blesses and moves even more when we’re working together.
Prayer is a relationship far more than a ritual or discipline. Prayer is our discovering what God wants us to do and joining Him as co-laborers through our prayers. Through meditating, the act of reflecting on God’s word and quietly listening for His still small voice, you learn to hear God’s leading and thus your prayers initiate from His heart and mind.
