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.

“Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “
I recently participated in a celebration of life service for a 101 year-old member of our church whom I had known for over 35 years. She had remained active in the church until almost age 100. She love being involved with missions, her church family and had an amazing ability to turn conversations away from herself to others. We were always learning new things from her.
There was one last lesson that I learned related to her. I knew that she celebrated her birthday in December. Several times the thought came to mind that I needed to get her card in the mail. After missing the date, I decided that I would just include a birthday greeting in her Christmas card. Just before I was putting the stamp on the card, I received the call that she had passed into her eternal home. I am saving the card as her gentle reminder that if strengthening my relationships with God and others is a priority - don’t delay!
Father, thank you for those that you bring into our lives who put you first in their lives. Forgive us when we neglect making the first and second commandments the priority of our lives. Amen
