THE STRATEGIC VALUE OF INFORMED PRAYER
Throughout history, the fruitfulness of of God’s people in discipling and blessing nations has been tied directly to informed prayer.
As prayer for Unreached People Groups (UPGs) has increased since the late 1970’s, the Holy Spirit has led many missionaries and agencies to rediscover the fruitfulness of multiplying disciples and churches through simple obedience. As of January, 2019, researchers are now tracking more than 700 Acts-like Jesus movements, mostly among these UPGs. In just a few decades, these movements have produced about 70 million new disciples in rapidly multiplying churches. That’s more than 2% of the global population of Unreached People Groups.
Informed Prayer is the first domino leading to God’s blessing in Jesus 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?
The Pray for the Thirty-One – Prayer Guide empowers informed prayer for the 31 largest, most influential Frontier People Groups, with a combined population of nearly one billion.
As God answers informed prayer for Jesus movements among and beyond these 31 groups, many surrounding people groups will also discover the blessing of knowing God in Jesus.
So… How do we give Jesus a billion people? It 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
