MIO Devotions: Day 4 Chicagoland

Lisa Misner —  September 16, 2015

This is the Week of Prayer for the Mission Illinois Offering. Pray for our missionaries and that we will reach the $475,000 statewide offering goal.

The spiritual need is great in Metro Chicago, home to 10 million people and only one Southern Baptist church for every 35,105 residents. Let the church-to-people ratio prompt you to pray fervently and frequently for those in the city and suburbs who have never experienced God’s love and the saving power of Jesus Christ.

Pray: Ask God to guide IBSA staff members who are facilitating church planting in Chicagoland: Dennis Conner, Tim Bailey, Edward Jones, and Jorge Melendez. Pray specifically that the seeds planted during this summer’s ChicaGO Week would continue to grow, and that leaders in the city would find favor with their neighbors, schools, and local officials.

Take time to pray today
