Pray for Peoples of the World

peoples

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.

14 PEOPLES OF SPECIAL PRAYER FOCUS

June 2018 Prayer Focus

This month, pray earnestly for the Russian people. Today, at least 115 million ethnic Russians live in Russia; another 18 million reside in more than 70 additional nations, including nearly 1 million in the United States. Most Russians identify as Orthodox Christian; many are nominal in practice; others struggle to find assurance of salvation. Intercede for the growth of evangelical churches and their witness in Russia, as well as for a multiplying movement of regenerate Orthodox believers. As you pray, be aware that the small evangelical church in Russia presents challenges in that society, which stresses cultural uniformity over individual expression and causes skepticism regarding evangelicals and even animosity toward them. For the church and for international Christian workers, a witness that flows from healthy, righteous living and loving, compassionate service is essential to Russians being drawn to explore biblical truth—pray that many more Russians will “taste and see that the Lord is good!”

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.
