Thank you for praying with us!

  • Please pray for the safety of all CBS staff and their families across the country as they continue to work to make God’s Word available to those in need of comfort and hope during these challenging times. We ask for continued strength and encouragement to do the best we can as we find ways to stay connected while physically distant.
  • Please pray for wisdom for CBS leaders as they assess the impact of the closures and restrictions on work and ministry, and make adjustments accordingly.
  • Please pray that God would continue to open doors for CBS to share the Word of God during this crisis.
  • Please pray for each person who received resources such as the Words of Comfort booklet, and other materials CBS is distributing for free in order to share hope and peace from God during his time of anxiety, stress, and uncertainty for many.
