#LovePASJ Week of Prayer and Offering for Missions

Bold Logotype-White

The month of August marks the primary emphasis for the BRN’s #LovePASJ Prayer and Offering for Missions. Let’s pray BOLD prayers for a BOLD mission!

At the Baptist Resource Network, we seek to help you accelerate Kingdom movement by helping you take your next step in ministry, whatever that step may be, and ultimately, helping you achieve your next level in ministry. Doing that often requires boldness, so we are praying for God’s Holy Spirit to embolden us like never before! We believe God has given us everything we need to be bold prayer warriors, witnesses, generous givers, and Christians who love our neighbors well. Let’s boldly confront the pervasive lostness in our region — 14 million people in Pennsylvania and South Jersey — and beyond! Let’s consider how we can observe a bold missional month of prayer, service, and evangelism, seeking first God’s kingdom and His righteousness! 

Where the Offering Goes

100% of this offering stays right here in Pennsylvania and South Jersey and supports ministry to our mission field, most notably in the areas of NextGen Ministry, Compassion Ministry, Disaster Relief, and Emergency Assistance for Pastors.

Dear Pastors and Church Members,

With great urgency, I write to introduce to you the 2024 #LovePASJ Week of Prayer and Missions Offering theme, which is BOLD, focused on Proverbs 28:1, “The righteous are bold as a lion” (ESV).

At the Baptist Resource Network, we embrace the call to give abundantly, witness fearlessly, and pray fervently on mission for Jesus. In a world where hesitation often reigns, we choose courage.

Our giving isn’t just about material wealth; it’s about investing in eternity, generously sowing into the lives of others, and spreading God’s love without reservation.

We are witnesses, not just by our words, but by the way we live. Our actions speak volumes as we boldly proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ in our communities, workplaces, and beyond. We stand unashamed, knowing that His power is made perfect in our weaknesses.

Prayer isn’t merely a ritual; it’s our lifeline, our direct connection to the heart of God. We pray boldly, knowing that our prayers have the power to move mountains and transform lives. We intercede with faith, believing that God hears us and that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Join us as we embrace boldness in giving, witnessing, and praying on mission for Jesus. Together, let’s make an impact that resonates for eternity.

This year’s #LovePASJ Mission Offering goal is $50,000. 100% of this offering stays right here in Pennsylvania and South Jersey and supports ministry to our mission field, most notably in the areas of NextGen Ministry, Compassion Ministry, Disaster Relief, and Emergency Assistance for Pastors.

We have designed a full campaign with a guide and materials to assist you in promoting this vital offering, including a poster to hang where it will be visible in your church, giving envelopes, prayer bulletins, and more. You can order more offering envelopes, prayer bulletins and/or posters, at no additional cost to you, while supplies last, or download presentation slides, social media graphics, videos and more, directly below. If your church is bilingual, be sure to check out the website for materials that meet your needs.

We heartily thank you in advance for committing one week to join with your fellow Baptists across the BRN to earnestly pray for requests and give to help support ministry right here in our region. Thank you!

“Therefore, let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16, CSB).

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING! YOUR PRAYERS REALLY MATTER!

Please pray for the BRN’s nearly 330 churches to be “bold as lions”– very BOLD and intentional in their evangelism and outreach. May the Lord bountifully provide solid vision for their ministries and an abundance of resources and refreshment for those in need. May God give church leaders and members a renewed calling and an increasing desire for making disciples, and may we all accelerate Kingdom movement across our region and beyond.

Please pray for BRN churches who seek to represent the Kingdom of God in their communities. Pray for God to give church members a BOLD vision for obeying God’s Word instead of just learning about it. Pray every church member is a bold witness, not just by his or her words, but by the way they live. May their actions speak volumes as they boldly proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ in their communities, workplaces, and beyond. May they stand unashamed, knowing that His “power is perfected in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Please pray for the BRN’s hard-working disaster relief teams who have met the needs of neighbors, near and far, through food distribution; recovery from devastating floods, fires and hurricanes; prayer; and more. Please pray specifically for more volunteers to be called out to make a difference for those impacted by the unexpectedness of a disaster! May we be “ready in season and out of season to encourage and share God’s Word” (2 Tim. 4:2).

Please pray for the over 750,000 college students across PA/SJ to respond to God’s call for salvation, discipleship, and service. Pray the Holy Spirit draws college students to Jesus during this pivotal time of their lives. May the Lord initiate a disciple-making movement on each one of our college campuses!

Please pray for our churches’ compassion ministries and outreaches to produce new disciples and new leaders. Pray that church members are equipped to share gospel conversations and to lead in meaningful discipleship. Pray that many new people will be won for Christ and want to be disciplemakers themselves. Pray for leaders within our churches to grow and lead others well.

Knowing that 14 million people in PA/SJ do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, please pray God compels our church members to initiate conversations and share meals with their neighbors, coworkers and other spheres of influence. Who might be the person you reach out to today?

Prayer isn’t merely a ritual; it’s our lifeline, our direct connection to the heart of God. Pray the Lord helps us pray boldly, knowing that our prayers have the power to move mountains and transform lives. May we intercede with faith, believing that God hears us and that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Just as Lottie Moon gifts support international missionaries, and Annie Armstrong gifts support North American missionaries, the #LovePASJ Missions Offering supports mission efforts right here at home. Please pray God gives grace and favor to the BRN team members who work daily to assist churches in these local mission efforts.

Your Gifts Matter

The #LovePASJ State Missions Offering is inspired by Ed and Mary Price, church-planting pioneers in PA/SJ.
