Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
I am a missionary with the International Mission Board of the SBC. They have a website called CompassionNet where missionaries from around the world post prayer requests and praises. This is a great resource and keeps our missionaries and their work before pray-ers.
I use Operation World by Patrick Johnston. It is a daily prayer guide for individual nations. Beginning alphabetically a different country is listed each day. Some of the larger countries are prayed over for more than one day. There is very helpful information on the government, culture and most importantly the church. There is also suggestions for prayer. This book is completely revised about every ten years to keep it as up-to-date as possible. I love the picture you have posted of Christ looking at the world. Often as I am praying for a nation I sense the Lord looking at it and longing for its people to know him and his love for them. I also sense the great love he has for his church and those who labor for him.
Hi Marsha ~ I have a heart for the Nations and recently completed a Perspectives course. One of the websites I was introduced to during Perspectives was Joshua Project. I receive a weekly email of an unreached people group which gives my specific information of the people group, needs, challenges in reaching this people group with the Gospel, etc. In praying for the Nations we are united with God's dream (Rev. 7:9-10) which has enriched and energized my prayer life!
