Annie Armstrong Easter Offering March 7-14 is this year’s Week of Prayer for North American Missions. Please use the prayer guide to help you pray for our North American missionaries, and please give generously to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Our goal this year is $8,200. The hope for America is not in who people vote for in the ballot box, but Who people surrender their lives to every day. We need missionaries and churches penetrating the lostness of America with the love of Jesus!
At the center of every great evangelistic movement is prayer. North America needs the gospel. Your prayers make a difference. Each week, the North American Mission Board website will feature prayer requests from our North American missions personnel and SBC chaplains. To get these requests from our missionaries and chaplains in your inbox each Wednesday, subscribe to the NAMB prayer newsletter. Jesus commissioned His followers to not just share the gospel with our nation, but EVERY nation. You can find daily urgent prayer requests from international missionaries on the IMB website. You can also sign up to receive the monthly prayer points via email.
