The strategic value of informed prayer
Throughout history, the effectiveness of mission efforts has been tied directly to informed prayer.
For example, prayer for Unreached People Groups (UPGs) has grown steadily since the late 1970’s. Today researchers are tracking 660 Acts-like gospel movements, mostly among these UPGs. Such movements have recently produced 68.3 million new disciples in rapidly multiplying churches.
Informed Prayer is the first domino leading to God’s blessing for a people.
A Billion People for Jesus!￼
Suppose we could bring to Jesus a billion people who have never heard about His transforming love? What would that look like?
Well, the Thirty-One Prayer Guide includes the 31 largest, Frontier People Groups with a combined population of nearly one billion. How’s that for an ambitious, yet convenient goal!
These groups are each less than 1/10th of 1% Christian, and they have no gospel movement.
So.. how do we give Jesus a billion people? The answer starts with prayer.
And the angel said, “Fear not, for I bring you good news of great joy for every people group” — Luke 2:10
