Reaching the Unreached
Prayer that Empowers Missions
Prayer Movements: Then and Now
Following Jesus’ command, the first 120 disciples sought God together daily for the promised Holy Spirit until He came. Their answered prayers emboldened and empowered their witness, and launched the fulfillment of Jesus’ commission to bless all nations—discipling all nations to lovingly obey Him.
1727 Moravian Prayer
A small band of Moravian refugees sought the Lord together until the Holy Spirit fell again. The prayer chain that resulted continued around the clock for 100 years, thrusting laborers into the global harvest and laying the seeds for William Carey, the conversion of John Wesley, and the Great Awakening.
1806 Haystack Prayer
Five students praying outdoors for revival were caught by a rainstorm. They took refuge under the edge of a haystack, where the Holy Spirit impressed them to take the gospel to the least evangelized parts of the world. The resulting movement multiplied protestant laborers 10-fold and greatly accelerated the spread of the gospel.
1980s Prayer for the Unreached & 10/40 Window
As the global Church was awakened to the reality of thousands of Unreached People Groups with very few believers, sustained prayer led to a continuing series of gospel movement breakthroughs which are multiplying to this day, yielding nearly 50 million new disciples by the end of 2017, and another 20 million in 2018!
