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.

Ministry Prayer Requests

1.  Pray for the staff as they finalize plans for the April 15-16 annual Missions Conference.
2. Give thanks for those who participate in the prayer ministry of Eastern Baptist Association.  Pray for upcoming prayer ministry  training opportunities at Missions Extravaganza and the Baptists on Mission meeting.
3. Continue to remember Operation InAsMuch:
As you walk down the hall or down the street or ride along your normal daily route this week, pray that God will open your eyes so that you/we can see opportunities for ministry among those in our community who have needs that we have never recognized.  Pray for wisdom in knowing how to minister as Jesus would.
 “THEN THE RIGHTEOUS WILL ANSWER HIM, ‘LORD,
WHEN DID WE SEE YOU HUNGRY AND FEED YOU,
OR THIRSTY AND GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO DRINK?
WHEN DID WE SEE YOU A STRANGER AND INVITE YOU IN,
OR NEEDING CLOTHES AND CLOTHE YOU?
WHEN DID WE SEE YOU SICK OR IN PRISON AND GO TO VISIT YOU?’
Matthew 25: 37-39

Devotional Thoughts

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
Many volunteers travel by air to various mission projects around the world but it is safe to say that most do not travel first class.  Everyone is on the same plane but first class passengers are accommodated better than anyone else. 
 
Christians are travelers in this world riding on the same plane as everyone else but Peter tells us that we’re traveling here first class with advantages and blessings the rest of the world do not have.  How? We belong to God and have received His mercy.  But when we became Christians, we didn’t just become worshippers of God, we became His children.  We didn’t deserve all He did for us but He bumped us up to first class, “…called out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  However, we are not first class to be pampered but to be useful and valuable to God.  God placed us in first class so that we could then go to the back of the plane and offer ways to Rescue and Redeem… talk with/pray for/serve/minister to those who don’t have our advantage.  We are called to be a people striving for holiness, as God is holy!
 
PRAYER: During this time when our worship and devotions cause us to reflect on the death of Christ, help us to be intentional in reaching out to those who are have never experienced being brought from darkness to light through salvation.  Amen.
