Pray for Peoples of the World


Praying for peoples of the world who most lack access to the Gospel is a practical and effective way Alliance people can help fulfill the Great Commission.

Below are descriptions of seven people group clusters and listings of the specific groups within those clusters. Click on the name of individual people groups to learn about them and pray for their need of gospel access. See where the seven clusters are located on our Pray for Peoples Map. Purchase a set of cluster group Prayer Cards so you can pray on the go.

West African Peoples

Historic Alliance work in the “bulge” of West Africa has been among people of traditional religions. Moving northward toward the Sahara we find people groups that, through the centuries, have become followers of Islam. Unlike traditional religionists further south, most West Africans remain resistant to the gospel.

December 2017 Prayer Focus

During this month in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus, please pray for the people of Italy. More than 90 percent of Italians profess to be Catholic, yet less than 1 percent attend church more than three times a year. Evangelical Christians in Italy amount to 1.28 percent; secularism is growing, and the occult is one of Italy’s fastest growing religions. Our Alliance global family began ministry in Italy in recent years when many Latin Americans began moving to Europe. Today, there are Alliance churches in six Italian cities. Please pray that Alliance and other evangelical churches in Italy will be able to share the message of true salvation and abundant Christian life with their Italian friends and family, especially those who have not found personal faith in their religious tradition.

Historic Alliance Ministry and Today’s Alliance Partner Networks

When there is no gospel access within a people group of the world, it can only be provided by “outsiders” who care. As Alliance staff labor throughout the world, and as we pray, we can make significant progress in creating access to peoples who lack it. Our Pray for Peoples Map also highlights areas of historic Alliance ministry where outreach to peoples lacking access continues. This ongoing ministry is carried out today with partners from our Alliance family around the world, most of whom are part of the Alliance World Fellowship. In these areas, “insider” gospel access is now available through strong networks of indigenous churches who sustain witness inside their own people group, with many even multiplying that witness to other groups within their reach.
