NCMO Week of Prayer

August 20, 2019

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 up and into September.

The goal of this year’s offering is $2.1 million, and this year’s offering theme is “Known by Love” based on Jesus’ teaching in John 13:35 — “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

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