How you can pray for the NC Missions Offering

August 28, 2020

The month of September marks the primary emphasis for the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO). Please join in a special prayer emphasis for NCMO and ministries it supports in the week leading into September.

The goal of this year’s offering is $2.1 million, and this year’s offering theme is “Compelled by Love,” based upon 2 Corinthians 5:14, which says “For Christ’s love compels us, since we have reached this conclusion: If One died for all, then all died” (HCSB).

Following are some suggested daily prayer points for individuals and churches. These prayer points are also available online at ncmissionsoffering.org/pray. Promotional resources are available at ncmissionsoffering.org/resources.
