Prayer Ministry

Due to Briarwood hosting the Gospel Reformation Network conference “O Church, Arise,” our facilities will be occupied on the National Day of Prayer on May 6. However, you are encouraged to set aside time on this day to pray for our country with your family, small group or others. To aid in your prayer time, click here for a prayer guide or find a guide for your family by clicking here.

Briarwood will be having a focused time of prayer on Sunday evening Jun. 27 to focus on issues facing our country, denomination and church.




To encourage prayer as a priority and pattern in each person, family and ministry at Briarwood, resulting in a sustained ground swell of prayer focused on seeking God’s heart and intercession. All for the sake of lifting Christ up in our church, Birmingham, the nation and the world.
