Welcome to the Homepage for the NCBM's Prayer Ministry. The overall purpose of the Prayer Ministry is to provide prayer support for the Ministries and Projects of NCBM and others. NCBM have teams on the mission field 365 days of the year. Before these teams leave for their destination, as well as during their actual time in the field, we need to provide needed prayer support for them. Via the Web, we give Christians the opportunity to come together and lift up those serving in missions.

Devotional Thoughts
Baptists on Mission have many opportunities to interact with individuals who are overcome by fear.  Ministering to those who have experienced a tornado, flood, or wildfire or dealing PTSD symptoms following a life & death situation can place volunteers in strategic situations for ministry.  I Kings 19 is a great reference for such situations.  Elijah had a mountaintop experience just prior to getting the news of the threats to kill him by a very powerful person.   Although he had a close relationship with God, he was overwhelmed by his circumstances. 
God did not abandon Elijah.   Elijah had the equivalent of an adrenalin surge as he ran for his life.  He finally collapsed and fell asleep.   God sent an angel to encourage him to eat.  He found a place to rest, he was provided food, and eventually, had a conversation with God.  Remember the last time God spoke to you in a still small voice?  God gave him step by step instructions for dealing with the situation and informed him that he was not alone but there were several thousand others who were faithful in Israel.
PRAYER:   Remind us of the experiences of Elijah when our circumstances overwhelm us.  Help us to remember the importance of rest, food, and taking time to listen to you when we are distressed.  In the name of Christ, amen.
