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 continue this continent by continent journey with Australia, NZ, and the South Pacific., also known as the Pacific Islanders. Of the 1549 people groups, 54 are unreached peoples, roughly 1,144,000 people. See the resources below to learn more about evangelism in these regions and read prayer points from active organizations in the region. Some prayer points from the Joshua Project include:
RENEWAL: Ask God to bring the fulfillment of the prophetic proclamation that the Church of the South Pacific rises up in the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit to boldly proclaim the good news. Proclaiming not only to the remaining Least-Reached Groups of this region, but around the globe!
RESOURCEFULNESS: Pray that God causes people from the Body of Christ to work with His divine creativity and in unity of the Spirit to overcome every barrier to the gospel
among every people group.
RISING GENERATION: Plead for the fulfillment of Malachi that the son of righteousness rises with healing in his wings, turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the
children to their fathers. Pray that generational blessings of faith and courage are passed to the young so they can reach their generation for Jesus.
RAPID: Pray for the Word of God to spread rapidly and be honored as it is proclaimed before those around them by faithful men and women, especially among the remaining Least-Reached Peoples.
REMAINDER: Pray for the remainder of Least-Reached Groups in the South Pacific to be reached and to join hands with God, one another, and believers around the globe to reach and transform the remaining groups with the kingdom of God.
“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
Heavenly Father, what a glorious day it will be in Heaven when every nation, tribe, and tongue stand together in unity, clothed in white robes, praising your Name. Father we pray your mercy be poured out of the South Pacific region drawing the hearts of all men onto you. Father release your Holy Spirit in increased measure that supernatural encounters with Jesus Christ will be the ignition of mass revival in the remaining unreached people groups. Father we pray for divine revelation to be shed on translation efforts that there would be a rapid reproduction of effective tools for both sharing the gospel as well as discipleship. Father we beseech you as the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into the South Pacific harvest fields. Father we silence the voices of the secularism penetrating a once strong Christian nation, and declare a release of the Spirit of Truth to return the hearts of your children back to their first love, Jesus Christ. We pray all these things in the mighty name or our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
