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 sponsors or is actively involved in:

    • National Day of Prayer (second Thursday in May)
      • Prayer breakfast (See video of 2019 breakfast.)
      • Something new this year!  We led a  worship and prayer gathering on Granbury Square from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  It was on the Bridge Street side of the Courthouse at the gazebo.
    • A Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving on Patriot Day, September 11th
    • Another One Nation Under God worship and prayer gathering for the community the Sunday evening before Election Day in even years
