Prayer Focus:

In our closing week of prayer for the 21 days of prayer, we are going to take our focus to the great commission.  Praying continent by continent, our goal is to agree in prayer with the Heavenly Fathers call to the nations, that not one shall perish.  Today we start with Asia with a focus on the 10/40 window.  The 10/40 window traditionally refers to the people groups and countries whose land mass fall between 10 and 40 degrees north latitude (See below for links to resources that contain maps, lists, and people group descriptions)

Within this land mass lives over 8593 people groups, in which over 60% have very little access or knowledge to be exposed to the life changing gospel and the love of Jesus Christ.  That’s over 3 billion people blinded to the freedom of a Savior by worship of false gods, or Atheism.

Scripture Focus:

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. -Revelation 7:9

 

Let’s Pray:

Heavenly Father, we come before you today recognizing you created us as part of a global church.  Father begin to stir our hearts in greater ways for our brother and sisters in nations beyond our borders.  Father set us on fire for the poor–both in spirit and in physical provision– that we may be diligent to use our privilege of prayer to further your great commission on a regular basis.  Father we lift up the people of Asia and the 10/40 window today.  Father raise up workers for the harvest.  Father remove the blindness to the gospel.  Father bring in the resources to provide for missionaries, bible translation, and all necessary tools of evangelism.  Father raise up and supernaturally encounter the forerunner national leaders you are calling to be the beginning of revival in the unreached people groups of Asia and the 10/40 window.  Father we call forth your provision and declare your promises for all people.  Father we stand in agreement with your global vision of heaven as written in Revalation 7:9 where all tribes, peoples, and languages will stand before your throne.  Father we call forth Heaven to descend on Earth in the people groups of Asia and the 10/40 window. In Jesus’s name we pray.
