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

“Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage  and strengthen the brothers.”  So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.  After Paul and Silas came out of the prison, they went to Lydia’s house, where they met with the brothers and encouraged them.  Then they left.”  Acts  15:32;16:5 & 40
 
Have you ever considered how much of the work of NCBM is focused on strengthening and encouraging individuals and churches?  Rebuilding teams, feeding teams, VBS ministries, church constructions, Angel flights, Men’s Ministries, Marriage Enrichment are just a few examples of ongoing ministries that are focused on strengthening others in the faith and being an encouragement. 
 
Take time to look at a map of the missionary journeys of Paul and his teams as you read through the stories in Acts of the ways that they shared the Gospel, discipled new believers, formed groups, and encouraged individuals along the route.  Imagine a map of the missionary journeys for Baptists on Mission for 2016 and think of the individuals that make up the stories of lives that are being impacted through the ministries.
 
PRAYER:  Gracious God, we are so thankful for your Word and the stories of Paul, Judas, Silas and others who were “real live missionaries”.  Guide us as we follow their examples.  Help us to encourage and strengthen others in the faith.  Amen.
