A fellowship of churches!

Prayer Needs

He said to his disciples, "The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest, ask Him to send out more workers for His fields."  Matthew 9:37-38 (New Living Translation) 



Pray that the Lord of the Harvest will continue to send workers into the fields - that the called will obey!

We believe the workers are in the harvest ... pray for the harvest and the workers!

 


Praise

Baring Baptist Church has received a van to help them with their ministry in Baring. We are thanking and praising God for his provision and for churches that partner with churches here in Maine to reduce lostness in this place!

 Pray for our Pastors

For each to stay faithful to God and His calling on their lives

For each pastor and his family to remember God's Call and to be content in the place that God has called them

For each pastor to be an effective pastor of the flock to whom God has called him and to the community still outside the fold

For God's protection for each pastor's marriage and their entire family

Pray for our pastors to be men of integrity

Pray for the physical, emotional and financial health of our pastors

Pray for opportunities for our pastors to have accountability partners and friends

Pray for our pastors to "Be Still and Know that God is God" so that His name will be exalted among all peoples 

Pray that our pastors will develop leadership with whom they can share the ministry 


 Pray for our Association

 We are looking for churches that would like to adopt a church in Maine to pray for them each time they meet. Churches that will encourage their members to pray regularly for their prayer partner. If you church is interested, please contact the associational office at missionmaine@mainesbc.org. Thank you for your prayers!

For the Leaders as they strive to follow God's leadership

For the 22 churches and missions that are part of our association

For the 800+ cities and towns in Maine

For the 95% of  Mainers that are lost

For laborers to come from within our churches in Maine to reach Mainers

For God to lead others to join the laborers already here

For those who come to be willing to invest their lives

For communities to be identified for church plants and reached with the Gospel

For faithful stewardship of the resources God is providing to bring the Light of Jesus Christ to the darkness here.

For Keith lawrence (DOM) as he visits, encourages and challenges the pastors and churches in the great task God has given us.
