Did you know ONE in FOUR individuals live in people groups with no hope of hearing about Jesus before they die?
They are called Frontier People Groups (FPGs) and they have no known gospel movements among them. By praying for the thirty-one peoples in this prayer guide, you will pray for half of them, or about ONE BILLION people!
This Prayer Guide will:
- Inform you of the 31 largest FPGs.
- Equip you with prayers on their behalf.
- See how God is preparing them to hear the Gospel.
- Stir believers to go and take the gospel to them.
Informed, united prayer releases God’s blessing in Jesus to multiply through the precious households in these FPGs.
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. (1 Tim. 2:1)
Who Are the thirty-one?
The "thirty-one” are the largest and most influential of all Frontier People Groups. Each has a population of 10 million up to 150 million. One tenth of mankind and half the people in all FPGs, live in these 31 groups.
What are Frontier people groups?
Frontier People Groups (FPG’s) are those that are less than 1/10th of 1% Christian. And there is no established gospel movement multiplying God’s blessing among them (yet).
Why prayer for these thirty-one peoples?
HALF the population of all Frontier People Groups live in these 31 groups. Each group has over ten million people and combined, they total almost a billion people or over 10% of the world's population.
