GOD’S INSTRUMENT TO REACH EVERY TRIBE, TONGUE, PEOPLE AND NATION IS THE CHURCH. HE GAVE HIS CHURCH A BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED COMMAND, THE GREAT COMMISSION. THIS IS A CALL TO MAKE MUCH OF THE NAME OF JESUS BOTH NEAR AND FAR. THEREFORE, IT IS OUR PRAYER AND DESIRE TO TAKE HIM TO OUR NEIGHBORS AND TO THE NATIONS. GOD HAS GIFTED EACH OF US UNIQUELY AND CALLED ALL OF US TO PLAY A PART IN THIS GREAT MISSION THROUGH PRAYING, GIVING AND GOING.
Prayer is the foundation to all we do. It is the fuel to accomplish God’s global mission around the world. Not everyone can give or go to the nations, but all can pray. When we begin with prayer, it shows our dependence on God and recognizes that only He has the power to accomplish His purposes around the world.
WAYS TO PRAY: • Pray that God would use FBCA to fulfill His mission for His glory • Pray for our partnerships at home and around the world • Pray for the FBCA church members on the field and those preparing to go • Pray for the unreached and unengaged people around the world
