This first century admonition from the Apostle Paul could just as easily have been written today. With the lingering chaos from the pandemic, war in Ukraine, the new war in the Middle East, persecution of Jesus followers in much of the world, and economic recession, it is easy to just throw up our hands and ask, “what can one person do?”
Paul gives us the answer. Stay focused on the Word of God, expectant that He will respond, and “pray all the harder.”
With this guide we invite you to pray specifically that God will become known to the one billion people across the globe who are at least nominally Buddhist. Each day, beginning January 21, 2024, you will learn something about Buddhist practice and influence in a different place.
This prayer guide is being translated into 30 languages and distributed through over 5,000 prayer networks worldwide. You will be participating with more than 100 million Jesus followers in intercession for our Buddhist neighbors.
Many of the daily profiles focus on a specific city. This is intentional. The cities that are described are the same cities that prayer teams from the underground church are ministering in on the very days that you are praying! Your intercession over their work on the front lines is critically important.
We welcome you to join with us, to remain “cheerfully expectant,” and to “pray all the harder.”
Jesus Is Lord!
