B21 invites all Southern Baptists to set aside June 1st as a day of prayer for our upcoming annual meeting. To coincide with this day, there will be a virtual prayer meeting beginning at 2pm EST led by various Southern Baptist leaders. Although we are in contentious times, the Lord is still doing much through Southern Baptists for the propagation of the gospel. It is our hope that Southern Baptists would pray for continued clarity and conviction around our clear doctrinal boundaries found in the BFM2000. In addition, we hope that we would hold our Christian convictions with Christian character. Finally, it is our great desire that this would lead to greater Southern Baptist unity for the sake of our cooperative effort in fulfilling Christ’s commission.
Date: June 1st
