Thank you for joining us this week as we at the Baptist World Alliance pray for our worldwide Baptist family and for God's work around the globe. If you pray along with us weekly, you will pray for every country in the world each year!

In our continuing response to racial injustice, the Baptist World Alliance hosted a worldwide hour of prayer on Thursday, June 18, 2020. Click the button below to view the service and other resources for greater racial justice engagement.
l learned from the Union of Christian Baptist Churches in Serbia that after 21 years of continuous rental, the Baptist church in Nis, Serbia, is suddenly and unexpectedly being forced to relocate from their premises. This not only negatively impacts the church but also the Balkan Theological Seminary and the Love Your Neighbor nonprofit organization.

Would you please join with me in praying that this situation would be resolved, that the church would receive favor in the eyes of local government officials, and that through this the Lord would work a miracle that strengthens his ministry?
I would also like to invite you to join me online this week for a free webinar hosted by Dr. Todd Still and sponsored by the Truett Church Network.

It's always a joy to partner with our Baptist seminaries and colleges, and I look forward to seeing you online as we discuss how God is moving around the world.
A Prayer from Kenya

God of Hope,
whose Spirit gives light and power to your people,
empower us to witness to your name in all nations,
to struggle for your own justice
against all principalities and powers
and to persevere with faith and humour
in the tasks that you have given to us.
Without you we are powerless.
Therefore we cry together:
Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus.

And grant that we may with one voice and one heart
glorify and sing praise to the majesty of your holy Name,
of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
