Day of Prayer for the
Mobile International Community
Monday, March 13, 2017
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
International Ministries Center
Prayer is the start of missions. Through prayer, we gain a heart for missions and the capacity to reach the 72 nations that live in Mobile County. March 13, 2017 at the International Ministries Center, will begin a one year season of prayer for the International Community living in Mobile County. Come enjoy a $5 lunch, time of prayer, and flag ceremony.
We no longer have to get on an airplane to reach the world. We only need to look at our County and see the 68 different people groups living among us. The Father has brought them to us in order to help them know true love and forgiveness. Prayer is the first step in them knowing Jesus Christ.
Mobile Baptist churches are being asked to consider adopting one of the 68 People Groups that live in Mobile. Your adoption of a People Group means your church will regularly pray for that nationality for one year. Churches are encouraged to be creative and think of unique ways to keep the adopted People Group in prayer. Prayer is the main thing!
For a visual reminder, churches are also asked to consider purchasing two flags of the adopted nation. One flag is to be placed in a prominent place in their church buildings. The second flag will be hung at the International Ministries Center. Each flag will remind churches and others to pray for the salvation of the peoples the Lord has brought to Mobile County.
Flag specifications: two 3’ x 5’ – Visit flagsusa.com/international-flags or call 866-879-1776. Average cost is $30-$40 per flag.
