100 years ago our global Baptist family stood together by giving the first Baptist World Aid gift to communities suffering in the aftermath of the Spanish Flu pandemic. One hundred years later, we are asking you – our Baptist sisters and brothers – to respond again to a global church that is suffering.

As the Spirit moved in power at Pentecost, we invite you to stand together as a global family on Pentecost weekend: May 29-31 (Western) and June 7 (Eastern). Imagine the mountains God will move if every Baptist church in every region of the world unites together in worship, stands together in prayer, and gives together to help those in need. Sign up to participate at BaptistWorld.org/pentecost .
Are you searching for ways to make a difference in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic? General Secretary Elijah Brown invites you to join 47 million Baptists united in prayer and action through the  Standing Together Global Response Plan . In the last month, this response has already included  120 grants impacting more than 70 countries and 100,000 people.  Thank you for standing with us at this critical time.
A Prayer for This Hour

O Saviour Christ,
in whose way of life lies the secret of all life,
and the hopes of all the people,
we pray for quiet courage to meet this hour.
We did not choose to be born or to live in such an age.
But let its problems challenge us,
its discoveries exhilarate us,
its injustice anger us,
its possibilities inspire us,
and its vigour renew us,
for your Kingdom’s sake.
