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.

  • 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.
