We give thanks that we are part of a larger network of Baptist churches across the world. We pray today for the European Baptist Federation Council taking place in Riga, Latvia over the next few days. We also pray for Martin Hodson and Mark Morris who are representing our network of churches at the conference.
Maybole BC – We pray for this small church that you would be with them as they think about the future and what that might look like for them as the worship and witness in the town.
As many churches celebrate the harvest season, give thanks for God’s faithfulness and provision to us, which enables us to bless and provide for others in our communities. Please pray for foodbanks and other agencies that may be receiving donations from churches in order to help and support others.
European Baptist Federation – EBF will hold its annual gathering in Riga, Latvia between 21 – 24 September. Pray for national Baptist leaders to stay Covid free as we gather. Pray also that this council will give shape and direction to the future of EBF as it seeks to support the mission of God across Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Pray for the nation of Ukraine, its Baptist leaders and churches as they continue to suffer from the violent actions of the Russian Government and their armed forces. Pray for a positive impact in the nation from the humanitarian aid being brought through the churches. Pray also for wisdom for Russian Baptist leaders as they seek to respond to the war, the sanctions and the impact on the future of the local church.
