Responding to the Coronavirus in Your Church
NAB Executive Team

Morning & Evening Prayers
For many of us, we desire to pray, but we are not sure how. We are easily distracted, but not sure what to do. We want to pray regularly, but we wonder if there are topics of prayer that we have not thought of. We ask ourselves, “Is there another way to pray?”

Much of this is possible in part because of the generous support of many within the NAB family, churches and individuals like yours.As March 29th draws near for our NAB Missions Sunday, we encourage you to use any of the resources created to tell the story and invite your people to take action.
