Come along as we introduce you to the church and its ministry. Our goal is to win the lost and edify the believer. Our core message is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our purpose is the fulfillment of the Great Commission and our method is to obey the scriptures and the leadership of the Holy Ghost. Our hope is that this website will inform, encourage and inspire the reader. We want this to be more than just an advertisement for the church; we want it to be a blessing to you. Watch for updates about our church and its members, as well as inspirational quotes, informative articles and perhaps a sermonette now and then.
Dear Brothers and Sisters of Bayou George House of Prayer.
I’m writing to update you on the situation we are facing as a church because of the Corona Virus pandemic and the recommendations being put forth by the government.
Heb 10:24,25 “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another:and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Bayou George House of Prayer believes strongly in this doctrine of consistent church attendance for the purposes of worship, fellowship and the hearing of the Word. But we also know that God instructs us to use wisdom in every area of life. Proverbs 22:3 says, “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.”
The threat from the highly contagious Corona virus, which causes the Covid-19 disease, is real and growing every day. We are thankful that the “social distancing” practice, being made to slow the spread of the virus, has shown considerable effectiveness. I believe that following these safety practices is in the best interest of all concerned. Therefore, after much prayer and deliberation; I have decided to suspend our “in-church services” for the time being.
As Christians and good citizens, we do not want to contribute to the possibility of anyone contracting or spreading the virus. As believers we will continue to pray for mercy from the only God who is able to prevent, heal and end this pandemic. Jesus Christ has all power in heaven and earth (Mt 28:18); and he is the One who commands the wind and the seas and they obey him. (Mt 8:26, 27) I believe the Lord is allowing this trouble in order to speak loudly to the world in these last days. The message today is the same as it was in the book of Ezekiel, where the Lord said 67 times “I am the Lord!”
Acknowledge Him as Lord and ask for His mercy; it is available to us today. We are told 6 times in 2 Chronicles and 33 times in the Psalms that the Lord’s “mercy endureth to all generations.” Be encouraged and unafraid dear saints. Our Lord is God!
Please check the church website, BGHPchurch.com, for sermons, scripture lessons, articles and more, as we carry on with the ministry of Bayou George House of Prayer. Things will be different going forward but we will still be worshipping the Lord and fellowshipping the saints in the best ways available to us at this time. Send us a note or a prayer request by e-mailing us at BGHPCHURCH@GMAIL.COM, or by visiting the website and clicking on the “CONTACT US” link.
Some have questions about giving during this time that we will not be meeting together.
I want to first thank those who have been so consistent and generous in their giving. The Bible says, God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor 9:7) and that if we are faithful in our tithes and offerings, He will “open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” The Lord promises to“rebuke the devourer for our sakes, and not destroy the fruits of our ground; neither shall our vine cast her fruit before the time….” (Mal 3:10, 11) God is faithful to bless us; let us continue to be faithful to give to the work of His kingdom.
If you choose, you may mail your check, made payable to Bayou George House of Prayer, directly to the church Treasurer, Suzanne Walters 5822 Pinetree Road Panama City, FL 32404.
Perhaps the simplest way to give is too add the church to your on-line Bill Pay Service at your bank.
For your convenience, we are also setting up a simple web-based method for giving. It will allow you to do your giving with the click of a button from the website. We will send out the details of this new method for giving as soon as the service is up and running.
May God bless you as we continue to worship and serve the One who is worthy.

This study of Daniel is especially unique. Rather than focus on the familiar stories of the Book of Daniel, it deals specifically with the prophecies within in the book. As a result, you will find a lot of mention of history. So, as you study, remember that the Bible records real history and includes specific events within that history. But Daniel went beyond recording history into specific prophecy of things that would occur in the future of the Jewish people - and in our future as well.
As you move through the chapters, allow yourself to marvel at how the Bible describes important events centuries before they occurred. (Daniel was written sometime around 530 BC, yet it offers clear prophecy of events that would occur as late as the second century BC). You can now look back at how history unfolded and see that the Bible was indeed correct. In the same way, you can find confidence and peace in this chaotic world as you examine prophecies yet to be fulfilled.
Also keep in mind that these prophecies speak important truths about God's unfolding plan for His people - as well as their role in sharing His message with the world. So, as you explore Daniel, note some important themes and truths:
* God is directing the course of history.
* No matter who we are, God calls us to humble ourselves before Him.
* God calls us to holiness because sin leads to judgement.
* God's kingdom will ultimately triumph over all the powers of this world-so you don't need to be afraid even when the world seems to be falling apart.
*God knows the future perfectly, and He cares about His people.
* God works through prayer to accomplish His purposes.
* There will be difficult times for God's people. Yet through faith in Christ they can stand strong no matter the circumstances.
As you study, avoid getting to bogged down in specifics, as some of Daniel's prophecies contain a number of details that were fulfilled in specific ways at specific times. Allow yourself to be amazed and encouraged by the prophecies that you read. Then apply the truths you study to your life, committing to live for God in a way that reflects Christ's soon return.
