We are grateful for your prayers!
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, then you will be able to pray for every part of the world each year!

Join us in thanking God for pastors and church leaders who have a passion to share the Gospel message and for the fruit being born from these evangelistic efforts.
Join us in prayer for those who were impacted by the terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday in 2019. Pray for God's peace and provision for those who mourn and for those still struggling to recover from injuries.
Join us also in prayer for the people of Pakistan, the sixth-most populous country in the world with a population exceeding 212 million people.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a devastating impact across the globe. India is experiencing a record-breaking rise in new cases due to the spread of a coronavirus variant. Healthcare infrastructures are collapsing under the strain with other countries scrambling to mobilize provision of oxygen and other life-saving medical resources. Brazil has experienced more than 200,000 COVID-related deaths in the last four months alone and has cumulatively the second-highest death toll in the world. BWAid is collaborating with regional leadership to provide support to these greatly impacted areas, and we ask Baptists worldwide to stand together in prayer at this critical time.

  • Pray for a swift end to the spread of COVID-19 and for God’s divine healing for those who have contracted the virus.
  • Pray for healthcare personnel and hospitals to have both access to and adequate supply of medical resources.
  • Pray for the comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit for the families who have lost loved ones.
  • Pray for strength for pastors and ministry leaders who are providing pastoral care in the midst of immense grief and loss.
  • Pray for equitable access to vaccines and systematic processes to make them available.

What a joy it is to serve alongside faithful Baptist brothers and sisters around the world! We greatly value your prayers and faithful partnership with us, and we invite you to join us this month in celebrating BWA Global Impact Month. Formerly known as BWA Day, this strategic time of prayer, celebration, and action gives us the opportunity to focus our hearts and minds on how the Lord is working through our global Baptist family.

Each week throughout the month of May, we will share a brief email update centered on one of our five core ministry areas with resources you can share within your home, churches, ministries, unions, and conventions. In remembrance of how the Spirit moved at Pentecost, we invite you to set aside a time this month to focus on the mission and vision of the BWA. Whether during a worship service, Bible study, mission meeting, or other setting, we are inviting God to powerfully pour out his Spirit among us.

Would you stand together with your global Baptist family for this intentional time together? We invite you to complete the form linked below to indicate your participation so we can be praying specifically with and for you this month.
Light for the Way

O Creator and Mighty God,
you have promised
strength for the weak
rest for the labourers
light for the way
grace for the trials
help from above
unfailing sympathy
undying love.
O Creator and Mighty God
Help us to continue in your promise.
