Leaders & Deacons = Pray for Samuel & Priscillia (we praise them for their good leadership), bless them with wisdom, grace, spiritual fortitude, and many faithful co-workers in ministry.
Ministry Team = Pray for our IBCB Video Team. We’re thankful for the leadership of Earl and Amos. Bless them with positive new ideas and skills in managing advanced media technology for God’s glory.
Small Group = Pray for our Friday night couples groups meeting with Davis and with Mufid. May each group and member discover by Your divine grace the keys to intimate Christian partnership.
Missions = Pray for John Matar – our church planting partner in Palestine – as he ministers in the difficult and challenging circumstances of life in the West Bank during a time of unrest.
World = Pray for India, suddenly hard hit by the covid pandemic and plagued by shortages of medicine, hospital beds, and oxygen. Relieve the worry of each waiting patient, of each family struck by infection. We join with the entire world of Baptist churches and others who devote their time, their hearts, and prayer to the suffering people of Myanmar this weekend of May 1.
