James Fraser, a missionary to Burma once wrote in his journal, “I believe it will only be known on the last day how much has been accomplished in missionary work by the prayers of earnest believers at home.” Many of us will never meet a member of an unreached people group or connect with someone who has worked among them. Therefore, the question arises, how do you know what to pray for?
Here are five things that you can pray will happen for the gospel to be planted in any unreached people group:
1. There must be a clear presentation of the gospel
2. No hesitation or fear in giving out the gospel (binding the enemy, breaking the strongholds depends on it)
3. Spiritual transformation (progressing past the initial heartfelt need to change)
4. True repentance from sin
5. Love above all – We must have love for others. Love will endure, sacrifice, embrace the cross, and reproduce itself in others.
