Pray that we will allow the great I AM to build His Church. What could happen in your community and across our nation if churches became healthy, if churches focused on knowing, trusting, and obeying God like never before? Ask the Lord to move among His churches so that our nation, and all nations, might know the Way, the Truth, and the Life: Jesus. (Acts 2:37-41,47; John 14:6)

Pray that the Lord will lead us in planting new churches and starting new works/ministries!
Pray that we will seek His guidance as we discover possible mission partnerships (Cuba, Salt Lake City, Brazil, etc).
Pray for the many mission trips (both international and within the US) that individuals from our churches will be participating in over the next few months.
Ask the Lord to prompt His people, including you, to pray with a new fervency. May God unite us (and Christians from around the world) in the act and heart of prayer. As you look toward tomorrow, another Sunday, ask God to move in a dramatic way in our churches to mobilize His people to be the healthy followers who reach out in the name of Jesus. Pray for Christians who are being persecuted. (Acts 2:42-43)

Pray for our Associational Staff:
- Stan Lowery, DOM
- Evan Knies, Executive Assistant
Pray that our churches will be sending churches. May God move us to the point of releasing the resources (people, money, buildings, talents, etc). He is providing us so that many people across the street and around the world will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Pray that our churches will be greatly involved in accomplishing the Great Commission and the Command of Jesus in Acts 1:8 by going and making obedient disciples everywhere He sends us. (Acts 2:7-21)

Pray also for the NBA Prayer Team.
Ask the Lord to help us to make His Love and Majesty known to those around us. Pray that Christians in our area will discover anew the importance of displaying Jesus to others by caring for them in His name, meeting needs, making a difference for God’s glory. (Acts 2:44-45)
