Prayer Task Force

Welcome to the website for the Hood County Prayer Task Force! Our three-fold mission is to:

    • Mobilize prayer;
    • Encourage personal repentance; and
    • Encourage righteousness in our culture.

The Task Force is an outgrowth of the work of Acton United Methodist Church (AUMC) to conduct a prayer breakfast for Hood County on the National Day of Prayer – the first Thursday of May each year. AUMC fostered the Task Force until mid-2016. Following the 2016 National Day of Prayer, the decision was made to bring the Task Force under the auspices of the Lake Granbury Ministerial Alliance (LGMA) as a means of fostering involvement of more of our Hood County area churches and expanding our scope. We remain eternally grateful to AUMC for shepherding the Task Force (formerly The National Day of Prayer Task Force of Hood County) for about nine years!

The Task Force is at work expanding our scope to include the following activities:

We are affiliated with the National Day of Prayer Task ForceClick here to visit their website and check out what is going on nationally with respect to prayer.  You can also view encouraging messages from various Christian leaders.

As part of encouraging believers to pray, we cooperated with the Hood County Pastor Council (HCPC) in November 2016 in its One Nation Under God Campaign that called us to pray and fast for three weeks leading up to the November 8, 2016 election. This campaign culminated in a concert of prayer led by HCPC at Shanley Park on the evening of November 6th, where an estimated 5,000 people gathered to worship our great God and call out to Him in repentance and supplication.  Click here for more information.

Volunteers Needed

We need more Task Force members and also volunteers to carry out a wide variety of tasks.  Two volunteers we especially need are someone to lead our fundraising and someone to liaise with the media (Hood County News, radio and television stations and Show Biz Cinema) to promote our events.    Is God calling you to becoming involved? If so, call our Coordinator, Fred Orcutt, at (817) 771-6988 or e-mail him using the form at the bottom of this page.
