We are continuing to cooperatively pray for every one of the 415,000 people in Mobile County by prayer walking every one of the 13,000 streets.
Reports from participating churches continue to reflect church members looking outward. Even introverts are experiencing divine encounters and positive responses. Thirty MBA churches have registered so far and committed to pray for 50 pages out of the Keith Maps Street Atlas of Mobile County. There are another 45 pages that need to be claimed.
We are hearing from churches that have completed their area once, twice and many times. Keep up the good work. Keep plowing. Matthew 18:19 shows that cooperative prayer (“if two of you agree…”) brings devastating defeat to the enemy.
It is not too late to bring this blessing to church members and impact Mobile. Please visit prayerwalk.mobilebaptists.org to register and download training materials.

MBA Executive Committee Reports provide extensive evidence of effective associational philosophy, strategy and function. Due diligence toward the MBA will confirm conservative biblical theology, excellent financial procedures, SBC polity and an eternal difference for their investment of missions giving and volunteer time.
Church members and pastors often receive requests from parachurch ministries asking for financial and volunteer help. Churches and individuals must practice diligent stewardship for any group they support.
Churches need to confirm the requester’s biblical theology, church polity, financial integrity and personal accountability.

Avoid parachurch ministries led by entrepreneurs who reject external guidelines from a church, denomination or their board. They often provide ministries that are less efficient and effective than ministries done cooperatively by denominations and churches.
Here are seven essential guidelines before supporting a parachurch ministry or individual:
