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.

October 2017 Prayer Focus

This month, please intercede for the Croat, specifically the approximately half a million living in southwestern Bosnia–Herzegovina bordering Croatia. Previously dominated by Roman rule, they embraced Catholicism, yet attendance and devotion to the church among most Croats is low. Their gospel–access need is less about lack of awareness of the story of Christ and more about lack of impact by devoted disciples of Jesus. Pray that committed, truly regenerate Catholic believers will be used by God to reach their Croat neighbors. Evangelical churches among Croats in Bosnia–Herzegovina make up only about one– to two–tenths of one percent of the population—between 500 and 1,000 evangelical believers. Alliance teams work with some of these believers; pray that that these ministries will result in bringing more Croats to Jesus. Learn more about the Croat (Bosnia–Herzegovina) at

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.
