Please continue to pray for the many local churches we nurture around the world. The local church is the engine of mission according to His power that is at work within us – missional communities of “sent ones”. From Latin America to India and from Asia to Africa CBM is building the capacity of these churches, strengthen and build up the Body of Christ – whether it is a hand, foot or an eye – by following the call of our sending God.

May the individual men and women, who are the local church in rural and urban areas bear witness to the love of God in their lives. May they be strengthened to serve their communities with grace, integrity, and faithful-living.

God our Father, use us to further the message of your kingdom, reconciling all things to Christ. As we have just celebrated the birth of Jesus, Emmanuel, God with us, may we be renewed in our call to follow you. Holy Spirit, continue to lead us to those places where you are already at work. It is with grateful hearts we pray all this, Amen.

As 2018 comes to close, we wish to express our gratitude for your faithful prayer support of all our ministries. We know that on a Sunday morning there are local church communities in this country praying for us during their morning services. We know there are those that pray for this organization in small groups, mid-week in church basements and in living rooms. We can not know what the new year will bring but we know we can face it with your prayer support. May you know His presence in even deeper ways as 2019 unfolds.
