Southern Baptist prayer guides:

"The International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has published a series of prayer guides tied to non-Christian religions and their observances. The guides are intended to assist Baptists to pray for the salvation of all persons through the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to learn about other religions in order to reach their adherents for Christ." 5 

The Southern Baptist Convention teaches that personal salvation is only possible through trust and belief in Jesus as Lord and Savior. Thus, they believe that followers of other religions are lost. These beliefs motivate them strongly to try to convert "the lost" to a saving knowledge of Jesus.

Each of these guides is written about a specific religion. They are generally printed in advance of that religion's major seasonal holy day(s). For example, perhaps the most controversial "prayer guide was designed to help Southern Baptists to pray for the conversion of their Jewish friends and neighbors as the Jews observe Rosh Hashanah." 5
