Day 2 – February 24, 2010
Harry Denman was a man of prayer. Ed Lewis, pastor in the Baltimore Conference, told about
accompanying Dr. Denman to the Holy Land.
“Early in the morning Ed followed Dr. Denman to the shore of the Sea of Galilee. Dr. Denman bent
down, scooped up water in his hand, and let it fall back into the lake.
Ed heard Dr. Denman pray, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done…through me, Lord, through me.’”
(Prophetic Evangelist: The Living Legacy of Harry Denman, 1993) Charles D. Whittle
It is said that Dr. Denman would pray for every Bishop by name, and he would lump all of the District
Superintendents together because there were so many of them.
Philippians 1: 3-6 (NIV)
I thank my God every time I remember you. 4In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with
joy 5because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6being confident of this,
that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Today and for the remainder of these 40 days, we will pray by name for our Bishop and all of our District
Superintendents. We have 904 churches in the Holston Conference, and we will pray for each of our
pastor’s as a group.
Bishop James Swanson
Archer Coppedge, Fred Dearing, Doug Fairbanks Jr., Randall Frye, David Graves, Mike Hubble, Adam
McKee, Don Nation, Mickey Rainwater, Meg Taylor, Mike Travis, and Carol Wilson
Lord, thank you for these women and men who lead us in the Holston Conference. As Harry Denman
prayed so many years ago, I pray that your will be done through me, but not only through me, through
these men and women who lead us. Lord, you have brought us all together for this time, in this conference
for one purpose, to lead men and women, boys and girls to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. As we lift our
leaders up to You today, I ask that You fill them with Your Holy Spirit and that You give them boldness
to share the Gospel as never before. Father, I pray as our leaders begin to share their faith and invite
people to Christ that we will begin to share your love as well. It is our prayer that not one person who
resides in the bounds of Holston Conference will miss the opportunity to be loved by You because this is
Your will. Let Your will be done through me, Lord, through me.
