As we celebrate nine years of ministry at GHRM and walk into our tenth year, it is our desire to finish this season in prayer and unity and walk into the next season in prayer and unity. We can not be successful without the power of God with us and in us. Therefore we have declared this time of consecration and prayer so that we may seek the Lord wholeheartedly and without the distractions of the flesh. We ask that all of our GHRM read and adhere to the guideline listed below and commit to prayer and word study over the assigned scriptures, prayer gatherings and Power-Up messages during these 21 Days. We are anticipating the Lord to meet us during and at the conclusion of our time of consecration and prayer on October 15.
