Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873 to 1912. She saw firsthand the world’s greatest problem — LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for a greater missionary presence.
She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries. This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®.
100% of your gifts support International missionaries.
The Week of Prayer is annually observed by SBC churches to specifically pray for missionaries around the globe, the needs of their ministries, and the needs of their families. Prayer is the fuel enabling God to spiritually and emotionally sustain missionaries in places where the gospel is greatly needed, but often opposed.
Prayer guides are available for your church to order or can be downloaded for individual use. You can also see how God is at work using your prayers and gifts by watching the missionary video stories. These and more can be found on the resources page.
