About this group
International Missions Week of Prayer for Lottie MoonThe Week of Prayer for International Missions will be observed throughout the Southern Baptist Convention Nov. 28 Dec. 5, 2021. This year’s theme is TOGETHER, WE TRANSFORM LIVES THROUGH PRAYER Paul Chitwood, IMB President, says, There is an urgent need for the gospel to be proclaimed among some of the hardest to reach peoples and places. Every day 155,473 people enter eternity without the hope of Jesus. We are still here, still able to go to them, still able to share with them the most important news in all the world, the most important message they will ever hear. We can still offer help and hope.” During the Week of Prayer we focus on praying for IMB missionaries, their ministries and the unreached people and places they serve. Read the missionaries’ stories in the prayer guide clipped to the handout sheet Their work couldn’t happen with out OUR support. They depend on us for prayer and they depend on the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for financial support. Every penny goes to the missionaries and their ministries.
