52 Sundays prayer resource now available

January 23, 2019

Do you have a heart for missions but are unable to go beyond your local area? You can be an integral part of reaching the nations by your participation in “52 Sundays.”

52 Sundays provides resources for individuals and churches to unite in weekly prayer for different missionaries serving around the world, throughout North America and across North Carolina.

52 Sundays connects you and your church with names and faces of missionaries you can support through prayer and sacrificial giving to missions through the Cooperative Program.

Your church can say the people you learn about through 52 Sundays are “your” missionaries because you support them through the Cooperative Program.

The 52 Sundays material may be accessed through our resources page or downloaded directly by visiting ncbaptist.org/52sundays. Resources include:

  • PowerPoint slides for use in church services that includes information on 52 different international, North American or North Carolina missionaries your church supports through the Cooperative Program. Each week has an accompanying file which can be used with prayer leaders or small groups.
  • Prayer points for each missionary.
  • Bulletin inserts to print for each Sunday.


If you need these resources in another format such as a CD or USB drive, contact Will Taylor at [email protected] or call (800) 395-5102, ext. 5517.

The 52 Sundays resource is produced by the Southern Baptist Stewardship Development Association (SDA) in cooperation with the SBC Executive Committee, the International Mission Board (IMB), the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the 42 state Baptist conventions.

What’s your ‘why’ in children’s ministry?

As a children’s minister, I excelled at checking off my daily to-do list. If someone needed markers, tape or Goldfish, I was the one to call. As I reflect on the years I spent on a church staff, one major downfall I admit is the lack of vision I had. Having a vision would have...

Is your ‘one’ a child?

As Southern Baptists, we are being called to ask ourselves a question: “Who’s Your One?” Who is the one person you can pray for, build a relationship with and have an ongoing gospel conversation with? Who is one person you can focus on who needs a saving relationship with Jesus...

Our calling is to serve North Carolina Baptist churches in their health, mission and efforts to impact lostness in their own communities and beyond. Back in 2015, author and professor Chuck Lawless wrote an article entitled 10 Traits of a Healthy Church. Reading it caused me to...
