Whether sharing a beachside “barbie” with New Zealand’s Flinders family, or a backyard barbeque with the Coopers of Alabama, you’re on a mission! Four out of five of your neighbors do not know Christ. Create your own backyard mission field! Have some new friends over, and “fire up the barbie” today!
“…love your neighbor as yourself…” (Lev. 19:18) Lead them to Christ.
Take a Moment to Pray for the Unreached in Alabama and New Zealand
- Father, we pray for all the lost in our world to know you, from Alabama to New Zealand.
- We pray that Your Holy Spirit seeks out those in our state who don’t know You.
- Father, please let our lost neighbors have an urgent desire to know more about You. Please awaken their hearts.
- Please give us opportunities to speak to our neighbors about the goodness of Your ways.
- Father, we pray that You will allow us to yield fruit from Your harvest, that the lost among us will be nourished in Your Word; that they will pray to truly know You.
