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

February 2018 Prayer Focus

Please pray this month for the Maninka people in West Africa, of whom more than 3 million live in Guinea. A linguistically identified group, the Maninka are part of the larger ethnic people group known as Mande and are descendants of the rulers of the once great Empire of Mali. Although the New Testament and portions of the Old were translated into their language by the 1960s, the Maninka are subject to strongholds that impede the gospel message from capturing their hearts. Today, less than one-tenth of one percent of this population follows Jesus. This is what our prayers each month are all about: God's promise and His Commission—gospel access for all peoples!

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.
