For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. Colossians 1:9-12
How Will You Pray for Missions Today?
Have you heard of the 10/40 window? It’s the area between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator reaching from Northern Africa west to Asia with the highest concentration of unreached people for Jesus. The area is home to more than 5,500 people groups totaling more than 3 billion. In addition, the area is home to the majority of the world’s impoverished people.
Terror groups like ISIS and Al Qaida operate in this area and routinely murder anybody who embraces other faiths. 2 Corinthians 4:4 perfectly describes this area: “the god of this age [Satan] has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
Missionaries all over the world risk their life and live on next to nothing to bring the Gospel to these lands. They need your help. They need you praying and fasting for them along with real action.
And let’s not forget areas close to home. Your community has impoverished people that need you to not look past them but instead, to embrace them. God doesn’t call His people to minister to only those that walk through church doors. God wants His people going to places others would normally avoid.
Maybe it’s time to go on a mission trip or feed the poor. Let’s not just pray for missions. Let’s make our revolution an act of service. Maybe God wants you to go on a missions or trip or help your community in a practical and tangible way. God calls each of us to reach the lost. Ask Him how He would have you do it.
