Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions
The Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering and Week of Prayer each September is intended to highlight and encourage Gospel work that Arkansas Baptists are faithfully supporting in our state and beyond. Arkansas Baptist churches are the partners, prayer warriors, and volunteers behind new church works, community missions like the Acts 1:8 One Day Mission Trip, collegiate ministries, and Disaster Relief.
Week of Prayer
September 8th - 15th
Begin this Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering Week of Prayer by asking God to raise up Arkansas Baptists who are willing to allow missions, evangelism, and a furthering of the Gospel to start with them. Surrender your own heart to that same willingness.
Offer a prayer of thanksgiving for Dustin Clegg, The Bridge Church in Wynne, and their partner churches. Pray for continued growth and restoration. Also, offer a prayer of thanksgiving for all of our church planters.
Pray for missions work already happening around the state, that the work will be fruitful and the workers encouraged. Pray especially for Disaster Relief teams helping with the long-term flood cleanup efforts in the Midwest and across Arkansas.
Continue to lift up the Disaster Relief teams, focusing today’s prayer on the ongoing need for volunteers. This incredible ministry impacts lives at a critical point with both physical and spiritual help. Pray that Arkansas Baptists will both volunteer and support volunteers in this work.
Baptist Collegiate Ministry
BCM ministers and members know that reaching others for Christ starts with one: one invitation, one action, one relationship. Pray that they will have wisdom to know how to engage college students, as well as boldness to share.
Pray that the atmosphere of each prison will be changed dramatically, providing a place where it is normal for men and women to seek after God. Also, pray for more volunteers to help maximize the number of inmates being reached.
Pray, Give, and GO
Pray for yourself and your church today. Pray that each member will recognize that they, too, are an essential part of Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions. Pray for direction and a willingness to step out and allow ministry to start with you.
When it comes to sharing the Gospel both at home and abroad, Arkansas Baptist churches get it. The Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering and Week of Prayer each September is intended to highlight and encourage Gospel-work that Arkansas Baptists are faithfully supporting in our state and beyond.
Dixie Jackson, the missionary for whom the offering is named, devoted her life to fulfilling God’s mission and involving others in that mission all year long. And now, 100 years later, we have the same opportunity to passionately pray, give, and serve. It's a heart beating for missions. It's us. It's you. It's me. I am Dixie Jackson.
This is why we will continue to challenge Arkansas Baptists to increase their giving and their involvement. Let’s partner together to impact our communities, our state, the nation, and the world with the Good News of Jesus.
