You may not be “Southern Baptist”, “Baptist”, or even “Evangelical” but if you believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and the only means to a relationship with a holy God, perfect in purity and justice, then you can join me in praying for His work through the Southern Baptist International Missions Board. I am Including the information below as well as a link to the original posting from their website. I know from the date listed on the site that the week of prayer is already over, BUT if you start praying through from today you will finish up on Christmas Eve! Please join me in praying for these people who desperately need their eyes opened to the Truth of Jesus Christ! He is the reason… for everything.
WEEK OF PRAYER:
HIS HEART, HIS HANDS, HIS VOICE – I AM SOUTHERN BAPTIST MISSIONS
Week of Prayer, Dec 4-11, 2011
If you are a follower of Jesus, you are part of the task to fulfill the Great Commission.
Paul says, “All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27). Jesus has commissioned us to be His heart, His hands, His voice. Through praying, giving, and going, Southern Baptists have fulfilled this legacy for more than 160 years.
Yet billions remain lost and time may be running out for them. We must pray more intentionally and give more sacrificially than ever before. Our churches must take direct responsibility for helping reach the nearly 3,800 unengaged, unreached people groups that missionaries may never be able to get to.
And, since most unreached people groups likely are represented in the world’s urban centers, we have unique challenges and opportunities to reach the world through the cities, as illustrated in this year’s week of prayer features.
What can you do, individually? Start by being “Southern Baptist missions” through your prayers to be an extension of His heart, hands, and voice through unprecedented giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®.
