MIO Devotions: Day 8 Generous Giving

Lisa Misner —  September 20, 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.

Giving to the Mission Illinois Offering aids in the continued health and strength of local churches right here in our own state.

This offering supports the salaries of church planters, missionaries, and leadership trainers. It supports campus ministries and reaching the thousands of Illinois college students. It provides ministry supplies, equipping for church leaders, and the mobilization of mission volunteers. But overall, it supports the goal of living out the Great Commission and carrying the gospel to those in Illinois who are lost.

Pray: As Illinois Baptist churches collect the offering this week, pray that hearts will be moved to give.

Pray that God will prompt people to be generous with their resources and that each congregation will reach its goal. Pray that the overall state goal will also be exceeded. And pray about your own financial commitment, that God will reveal how he is calling you personally to support state missions through the Mission Illinois Offering.

Take time to pray today
