Core Prayers for Core Values

A 21 Day Comprehensive Guide for Praying the 7 Core Values of the IPHC

Introduction

In December of 2012 ten leaders of the IPHC met in Dallas, Texas for two days of prayer and Bible study to seek the face of the Lord. Presiding Bishop Doug Beachem, Bishop Chris Thompson, Bishop Talmadge Gardner, Bishop Tommy MgGee, Dr. Harold Dalton, Dr. Lou

Shirey, Rev. Gary Bryant, Rev. Bill Terry, Rev. Lee Grady, and Rev. Terry Fowler. This Group met to wait on the Lord and to hear from His word.They trusted that the Lord would speak to them but did not anticipate that he would do so with such clarity and scope. The Seven Core Values of the IPHC where birthed from their time together with the Holy Spirit. With each one having the statement, “WE Prayerfully Value”, I strongly felt the leading of the Holy Spirit to develop a prayer guide for the Seven Core Values.

Purpose of This Guide

As with anything worthwhile there must be a purpose in doing it. The purpose of this prayer guided is to undergird with a firm foundation where the IPHC Core Values can stand and continue to be bathed in prayer as to strengthen and incorporate them into the fabric,hearts, and minds of the IPHC and it’s members.

Mission

For each Core Value to be a living heartfelt reality, coming alive in the lifestyle and breath of prayer.

Vision

Each Core Value will become an existing, active, and vibrant part of all IPHC Churches.

Thank you for committing to praying the Seven Core Values of The IPHC. Experts say that anything done consecutively for 21 days will become a habit. I could think of no better one to have than one of prayer.  Until the trumpet sounds,
