Pray First Devotional Material | 2024

Not that I have already reached the goal or am already perfect, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead. I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:12-14

As Arkansas Baptists, we begin every year in prayer together through our Pray First initiative. This past January, we kicked off 2024 by diving into God’s Word, hearing devotionals from leaders around the state, and spending time fasting and praying.

Our focus came from Philippians 3:12-14, and every week in January we focused on a different word from this verse: forget, reach, goal, prize, and call.

Below you can find all of the Pray First content including the devotional videos and written material. We encourage you to keep putting prayer first and use these resources with your church throughout the year. These timeless words can have an eternal impact.
