have put together some awesome videos, some of which are set up nation by nation and are PERFECT for missions rallies that are focusing on a particular part of the world. Hats off to them for making all their videos free of charge. It’s truly suggestive of the fact that their mission is to raise up prayer in whatever way possible. God bless them.
A Global Call to 40 days of prayer, fasting and repentance, originating in Australia, and called “Billion Souls Revival Prayer Call” began on 6 Aug and continues until 14 Sept with an International Day of Repentance (which is also Yom Kippur, Israel’s National Day of Atonement). Join a targeted 1 million to pray for 4 prayer points including the salvation of 1 billion souls (especially amongst unreached peoples). This guide has contributions from 39 international and national prayer and mission leaders around the world.

Wycliffe Associates is requesting prayer for the peoples of Papua New Guinea, where a total of 836 living languages are spoken. They’re hoping to launch up to 100 new language projects this year in the Sepik River Region of the northwestern part of the island, where isolated groups have no Scripture in their own language.

A new prayer network called Pray For The Mien was launched on May 31 and it is really taking off. The purpose is to “Mobilize Prayer for a Church Multiplication Movement Among the Iu Mien of Southeast Asia.” You can visit this site at
and subscribe to daily updates there. They have also released a prayer video at
Check it out and join the movement to pray for this strategic unreached people group that resides in four countries in the heart of Southeast Asia.
The vision is to see a Church Multiplication Movement (CMM) among the Iu Mien of Southeast Asia until this strategic people group is reached and transformed by Christ, passionately worshiping and serving through multiplying indigenous churches in every Mien village in Southeast Asia. Because there has never been a CMM in the world where there was not dedicated and abundant prayer offered for the targeted people, starting today, they’re asking us to join them in praying for this vision to become a reality. Learn more at…
You can sign up for a daily memory-jogger, watch the prayer video, and/or Like the Facebook feed. Either way, they hope you’ll pray.
As far as we can tell, it’s the first time anyone will have ever attempted it. Well over 50 “live” remote sites, all praying simultaneously around the save theme (finishing the task of the Great Commission), beamed into one video production studio in the same hour, then rolled out as a seamless concert of prayer. If Zinzendorf had been able to tweet, this is what he would have organized. Take it all in at 8:30pm EDT (that’s 12:30am, Apr. 18th, Coordinated Universal Time). The entire event will last exactly one hour as each of the remote sites has one single minute to pray “live” on the broadcast. It’s free and there’s no soliciting allowed. And it’s all prayer. Live. Together. Learn more at the site…
There’s a countdown clock to the event there. You can also tweet “in place,” and also see a cool map that will provide approximate locations of those taking part in the Prayercast. (The locations are approximate in consideration of our participants in sensitive lands.) Also, follow the event on Facebook at…
You can also tweet using #globalprayercast during the event, and the tweets will load not only in the webpage itself (even in the days and hours running up to the event), but also in the video stream DURING the event. (For example, tweet your own prayers to join with the groups praying in the broadcast stream.) Get your home bible study, life group, agency, or church involved. If you feel the approach is effective, please replicate it among your spheres of influence again and again. May God bless our concert of prayer together planet-wide. Here’s a one-minute video explaining the goals:
Tonight, please join me in praying for safety for Christian workers all around the globe. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a humanitarian aid worker in North Africa, a church-planter in Central Asia, or a first-aid worker in Boston, life is fragile. People these days feel vulnerable. It’s only through prayer that we would ever dare to attempt daily life for the purpose of spreading the Good News. So join me today, please, in praying for a) peace, b) reassurance, c) sensitivity, and yet d) boldness to share His message. Thanks.
The Unleashed for the Unreached initiative (the same group that is staging the “Wall of Unreached Peoples” as a traveling exhibit around the country) is coordinating the “live” prayer event in conjunction with other world Christians, no matter where they live on the planet. (Will there be dozens?… or scores? or hundreds?) It’s happening on April 17, 2013, 8:30pm (EDT), 7:30pm (CDT). (That’s 12:30am UCT on Apr. 18th.) Legacy Christian Church (Overland Park, KS, USA) has graciously agreed to stream the event “live” to the entire planet, with live footage from as many as 50 simul-sync’d remote prayer sites throughout the USA and the world. To learn more, watch the 3-minute video and keep watching the U4theU site throughout the coming week for more details and the link for live-streaming. Make it an event for your church or group. You’re invited! Take part in this event so you’ll know how to replicate it for your agency, church, denomination, or movement. (We’re not worried about being copied. We’re PRAYING somebody will!) If all goes well, the PrayerCast concept will be used as an anchor to a global convention at the Kansas City Convention Center in November (the International Conference on Missions). This is like a proof of concept and a “dress rehearsal,” all at the same time. The technology is there. We just need to utilize it to make it happen. “Lord, please make us one so that the world may be won!”

Some time ago we included information about how a team focusing on Tunisia had set up a powerful web site with daily email prayer requests for those interested in praying for Tunisia (www.pray4tunisia.com). Well over 100,000 people are now receiving prayer requests from this service and praying for Tunisia daily. The good folks at Pray4Tunisia were kind enough to share their “template.” Indpartners Agency, with counsel and guidance from “Pray4Tunisia,” set up “PrayingforIndonesia.” They wrote recently to say, “We want to thank Brigada for including this information in their regular bulletin. We also want to thank “Pray4Tunisia” for their generosity and guidance in helping us develop our site.” They now invite you to visit
To receive a daily prayer request, just sign up to pray in the box on the upper right hand corner of the home page.
We face this question at the start-up of virtually every new unreached people group initiative. Our thesis is that Satan will not give up without a fight. He’s dominated in these areas for so many centuries. Only prayer will succeed in loosening the bonds. But — how to proceed? That’s why I’m a great fan of Betty, a prayer advocate who lives and breathes prayer in everything she does. In this article, she’s gathering up prayer resources with the help of Ellen Livinggood
Check it out. And her plan is to keep adding to the page. If you know of other items that could help her, please post them in the comments following this item. Thanks!

One of the best models — and one of the most popular — is Pray4tunisia.
Last time we checked, over 100,000 people per DAY had committed to following and praying for their prayer items. The ringleader wrote to Brigada this past week, in response to last week’s request…
“We’ve tried to make it easy to adapt much of what we’ve done (for example offering a download with hundreds of prayers that could be adapted).
Someone said to us that we have to either control access (who subscribes) or content (what is shared). We highly recommend controlling content (making it “safe” for anyone , even the “bad guys” to be able to see). Controlling subscribers is a manpower nightmare and is deceptively not-secure because if even ONE person who has access to the information loses a laptop, gets hacked, or doesn’t use a VPN that terminates in the same country where all your information is hosted, has his/her VPN disconnect suddenly, you’ve suddenly endangered people.
Let us know how we can help–particularly if you’ve got a church planting focus (we wouldn’t know much about other things).
(Thanks to the folks who make Pray4Tunisia a reality for the church… and a labor of love, we’re sure, for all those who make it happen.
Here’s a worker in sub-Saharan Africa, wondering if anyone has invented a “Please-pray-for-our-people-group” template. He writes, ” Our group of workers in sub-Saharan Africa is working with a Muslim people group and we have a number of different agencies from around the world all doing their own thing to bring the gospel to the people we have been called to. We would like to create a year-long prayer guide in which individuals and churches throughout the world can sign up to pray for various needs of the people group we work with. My question is simple. Has anyone set up a template that can be used for virtually any people group? We would need to be security-conscious, of course, so can’t reveal a lot of details in regards to those in charge.” If you know of something along these lines, please click below in “Comments” and let us know. Thanks in advance.
