Prayers of the People

PrayWayne Weathers, a CBF new church starter, serves as the pastor and organizer of Vision of Hope Baptist Church in Philadelphia, Pa. Vision of Hope is a multi-generational church that focuses on in-reach and out-reach ministry, providing hope in Jesus Christ to members of the congregation and community through practicing spiritual disciplines.

While pastoring another congregation in Philadelphia, Weathers felt a call from God to launch a church in the city that would provide hope to individuals dealing with challenges and despair in their lives. The mission of the church is to go out into the city to create disciples who can minister to both the congregation and the Strawberry Mansion community of Philadephia.

Thank God for the joy Wayne has experienced during his journey to organize and establish Vision of Hope. Pray that the church will continue to walk by faith. Pray that they will always seek to find innovative ways to show others the Kingdom of God.
