The Caribbean Baptist Fellowship (CBF) held a virtual prayer service on Saturday, September 4, to stand together in prayer for Haiti and other territories facing disasters. Please continue to join with BWA and CBF leaders in prayer at this crucial time. The immediate needs are significant in addition to what is needed for long-term recovery. BWAid continues to mobilize relief efforts through your faithful support. Find out more at
This week the European Baptist Federation (EBF) – one of the BWA's six regional fellowships – announced that Alan Donaldson, a pastor and former General Director of the Baptist Union of Scotland, has been nominated to be the new EBF General Secretary. After more than 15 years of faithful service, Tony Peck will retire from the role at the end of October.

Alan brings a depth of experience that stretches from Russia to Scotland with a passion for mission work, creativity, and warm relationship building. It was an honor to serve on a search committee that brought together leaders from 10 counties in a prayerful process. I look forward to the final decision of the EBF Council and ministering alongside Alan in the days ahead.

Please join me in prayer for God's blessings upon Alan, Tony, and the ministry of EBF.
A Prayer to the King of Kings

Our Father in heaven,
you are the God of gods, the King of kings.

We ask you to bless our governments,
our leaders, our elders
and all those who are in powerful positions.

Give them a heart which abides by your will
so they no longer favour injustice,
but act for the well-being of all,
in all things.

Give us all humble hearts
so that we have good things,
right actions,
and your blessing forever for our country.

Bless the activities of the farmer, the fisherman,
the businesswoman, the artist, and all other workers.

After the dry season, send us the blessed rain
and favour us with a plentiful harvest
so that we may glorify you.

Have pity on the poor, the soldiers, the sick.

Help those who are alone
and console those who are devastated.

Support pregnant women and mothers.
Help the widows and widowers.
Be father and mother to all orphans.

God, bless your word for Christians,
and for non-believers,
so that they may be assured
and lean on you
to obtain forgiveness for their sins
and become your children.

O Lord, have pity on us.
You are the God of mercy.

You are the strength, the glory, the honour and the holiness,
forever and ever.
