Week of prayer launched for international evangelism

The Southern Baptist Convention has launched its annual Week of Prayer for International Missions.

The SBC is heavily focusing on a theme of “lostness” this year as it focuses on bringing the Gospel to every person in every corner of the earth. According to a report from the Baptist Press, “59 percent of the world’s population remains unreached.” As a result, the SBC says it remains “committed to reaching the lost” and bringing the joy of Christ to them.

The Baptist Press is asking believers to “pray for new initiatives…to seek the lost and offer a message of eternal hope.” In addition, please keep the missionaries in prayer and ask God to give them an open and ready heart.
