Missionaries' No. 1 need is for prayer support – focused, continuous prayers not only for themselves but for the people to whom they bring the love of Christ.
RESOURCES FOR THE WEEK OF PRAYER
To help churches know how to pray strategically, why to give sacrificially and how to come alongside missionaries to reach the lost, WMU of Texas, IMB, and NAMB highlight representative families, individuals, ministries and their people groups during the three annual weeks of prayer;

Whether you are leading an entire congregation or a group of children, your role is critical. We want to help you teach, inform, and inspire. Various promotional resources and suggestions are available for each offering including opportunities for churches to be on missions.
Each week of prayer provides stories that illustrate how we are united as we join God in His work. when you pray and give, you support those who extend your outreach from your church to those without Christ. You become apart of God's story in Texas, North America and around the world!
Each church will receive a media or promotional kit, about two months in advance, that includes a planning guide for the pastors and missions leader with videos on a DVD, suggested timelines for planning and promoting, ministries stories for specific audiences, clip art and other resources.

Each offering provides various additional materials not found in the promotional kit. These resources may include clip art, graphics, Children's videos, PowerPoint backgrounds, ads for a bulletin, Facebook graphics and much more.

WHAT MATERIALS CAN I ORDER FOR MY CONGREGATION?
Your church can order FREE materials for each offering. These FREE resources include posters, prayer guides and offering envelopes.
WMU of Texas has changed the process for ordering the Week of Prayer resources beginning in 2014.
The reason for the change is to ensure that churches receive the correct amount of material they need and that the material is sent directly to the person that oversees promoting the offerings in the church.
In the new process each church or WMU director will be asked to submit separate orders for each special missions offering every year.
Please save these dates and submit your order on the suggested date:
Mary Hill Davis Offering | July 1
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering | October 1
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering | January 1
