5 Ways To Pray for the Nations Everyday

If the truth be known, and it will be in heaven, we are good at talking about prayer and often pitiful at talking to God. We have been exhorting the people of Eagle Heights to take prayer cards and engage the global mission of taking the gospel to all nations by crying out to God in prayer for the advancement of the gospel to all the nations. But how can we consistently know who and what to pray for? Here’s what I do know, we will not go to the nations until God changes our hearts as we plead for the nations. Here are a few intentional and everyday ideas for praying for God’s kingdom to come.

  1. You can meet and learn about an international student who is studying at OSU. In Stillwater, Oklahoma there are 1780 students who represent 113 countries from every part of the world. http://union.okstate.edu/iss/Resources/Statistics.htm
  2. Core Groups can adopt a people group and pray weekly for God to raise up gospel witnesses among them.
  3. You can visit the website www.operationworld.org and pray for a people group every day. Operation World is “a definitive prayer guide to every nation.”
  4. You could give generously to missions. When you invest your treasure, your heart and thoughts will follow (Luke 12:34).
  5. You could read the news headlines prayerfully and cry out to God. Here are some headlines from November 22 as an example of how to pray for people groups in countries:

Pray, Give, Go………. Everyone of us can and must participate in the mission.
