General Prayer/Intercession Meetings:
The corporate prayer meetings are an exciting time where the believers at SGT can come together to seek the Lord and declare His will to be accomplished on earth as it is in heaven. During these meetings there is an openness to the direction and leading of the Holy Spirit. Incorporated in the meetings are times of worship, thanksgiving, petitions, personal ministry and intercession.
