Ora con nosotros por todo el mundo
Join us in prayer for the lost people of Japan. Pray that they would receive the gospel in a city where many do not know Jesus. In Japan, “only one-half of 1% are followers of Jesus.” Dan and Paula Lumadue are missionaries to the second largest “never reached people groups” in the world. The city of Tokyo alone is populated with 36 million people! Believing for individuals to come to know Christ in Tokyo, Japan is truly believing for the miraculous to take place. At their Christmas outreach service, the Lumadues rejoiced as five people decided to dedicate their lives to following Jesus! God is moving in the lives of the Japanese as Dan and Paula faithfully serve as lead pastors of Yokota Church in Tokyo. Join us in prayer for Yokota Church, the city of Tokyo, and for Japanese people to come to know Christ.
Pray for the Lord to empower missionaries working with Ukrainians to stay strong. May He give them wisdom amid the crisis that is taking place, and open doors of opportunity to love, minister and serve others. Many of them are working diligently, with little to no rest. Ask for the Holy Spirit to go with and before each missionary, reassuring them of His comfort and protection through the truth of His Word.
Pray for new believers among indigenous communities as they navigate the cultural challenges that come with accepting Jesus. Many face great punishment for forsaking their tribes’ indigenous beliefs in favor of faith in Jesus Christ. Please pray that God will be especially close to them as they suffer imprisonment, abuse and other forms of persecution.
The next WorldView tells the stories of a Live Dead team that is seeing real results in a difficult place.
Recently, one young believer reached by the team decided to walk away from his faith. Let’s pray that God would miraculously provide opportunity for him to be reunited with the Lord. “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, ESV).
Please pray that the Live Dead team would be encouraged and find rest. Let us also intercede for young believers around the world who are tempted to walk away from the faith. Lord, keep them close to You!
Join us in prayer for Latin American Caribbean pastors as they further their training in theological education. The International Bible School Leaders Summit (held every other year) aids in this by offering sessions, workshops, services and other activities to equip leaders, directors and professors. AGWM personnel share the testimony of one attendee: “Despite the limitations due to the lack of electricity and internet, it was very gratifying, exciting and motivating. Each point added to enrich, strengthen and nurture our ministry.” Please pray that the Holy Spirit continues to move over the hundreds who were in attendance, both in-person and online.
Pray with us for the Holy Spirit to continue using local churches to minister and testify to their communities. An example of this occurred in a poor village of southwest China, where a pastor believed God for a miracle after finding the leaves of their mulberry trees infested with caterpillars. Silkworm cocoons served as a vital supplemental income for village residents, but the caterpillars had begun eating away at the mulberry leaves—the silkworms’ food. The situation looked hopeless until the people gathered in their church building and cried out to God. Suddenly, crows descended and ate away at the caterpillars until they were all gone. Residents then returned to the church to thank and praise the Lord, an AGWM team member reports. May God continue to move mightily through His people and their prayers!
Join us in prayer that God would grant compassion ministries both access and favor as they aim to serve others. In several Buddhist communities, this form of outreach is seen as an interruption of karma when the needs of others are helped through these ministries. Please pray for peace between these ministries and the Buddhist communities as tensions arise between the two. May the Holy Spirit continue to intercede and meet the needs of those who are hurting, both physically and spiritually.
Please pray for the church planting teams throughout Nepal as each believer carries both a willingness to serve and obedience to God’s call. One church planting team is made up of a Romanian and Bolivian family, both working together to reach Tibetan Buddhists. Join us in prayer that God’s hand of protection would continue to be over this team as they participate in furthering God’s mission. May God continue to unify those of different backgrounds to advance His gospel throughout the unreached people groups of southern Asia.
Join us in asking the Lord to strengthen new missionaries who are entering and serving in cultures different than their own. AGWM’s Europe region says, “Jesus took on a specific culture and language, was deeply involved in the community, and proclaimed and embodied the gospel in a contextualized way people could understand.” May the Holy Spirit bring this same ability to each missionary, helping them to lay down ethnocentric behaviors and to express the message of Jesus in ways that can be understood.
Please ask the Lord to continue providing Bible schools with access to educational resources through the distribution of print-on-demand systems. “Print-on-demand systems offer a more sustainable option for delivering curriculum and other materials to schools in Africa,” writes Africa’s Hope (an AGWM training ministry equipping African churches with Spirit-empowered, biblically trained leaders). “Once a school can operate a POD system, it can serve as a distribution center for other schools, programs and churches in their country and surrounding countries.” May Jesus multiply the knowledge of His Word and encourage every African seeking to study and grow.
Pray for Jesus to use unexpected places to reveal Himself to the heart of the practicing Buddhist. AGWM missionary to Thailand Sara Whitehurst shares a powerful testimony of hope found at the funeral of a young Christian celebrity. Many in attendance—both online and in person—declared this sad truth: “Christians know exactly where they go when they die. We don’t.” “God is using this young woman, still,” Sara writes. “Her death isn’t the end of her impact on earth. In Christ our lives and our deaths can still point others to Him.” Ask for God to use the uncertainties that many Buddhists face to bring them to the certainty of the gospel.
Join us in prayer that the Lord will continue to supply resources to Sri Lankans and global workers amid the economic crisis taking place. AGWM personnel reports of the difficulty that has come through the increased shortage in fuel and food items. Many locals are upset, and a large number of protests have taken place as a result. Pray for the Holy Spirit to intercede and plant peace in the hearts and minds of locals and officials. May He also offer provision to struggling Sri Lankans.
Pray for God to minister to Thailand’s youth as many face the aftermath of criminal activity. AGWM missionaries to Thailand Brandon and Rachel Powell write, “One of the many ministry opportunities we think about on a daily basis is the network of youth prisons in our city, where boys and girls age 10-20 are incarcerated for small to more serious crimes.” Yet Jesus continues to be at work in the lives of the youth as over 160 students have signed up with the Powells to study the Bible weekly. Pray that God continues to speak to these teens, deepening their relationship with Him and His Word.
Join us in prayer for Christians living in Eritrea, a country on the Northeast Coast of Africa where believers suffer greatly for their faith. “Hundreds have been arrested and imprisoned for years simply because of their commitment to Christ,” AGWM Africa shares. “Pray for their release, and for a change in the government’s view of these committed followers of Jesus.” Pray for believers to be strengthened as they share their faith and boldly proclaim the gospel message. May the Holy Spirit use them to reach the 40% that hold fast to Islamic beliefs.
Join us in prayer for Christian women living in Chad, that God would use them to minister to the hearts of Muslim women. Due to conflict, thousands of Muslim women have fled to escape fighting in the Central African Republic—a landlocked country of Central Africa—finding refuge in neighboring areas. “A stream of 40,000 Muslims have fled to Chad,” shares Say Hello, a ministry directed by AGWM missionary Lynda Hausfeld aimed at reaching Muslim women. “Pray that these women will be intentional in reaching out and ministering to the Muslim women living as refugees and that Muslim women will be led to Christ.”
Please pray for Estonians, suffering at the hands of mental health issues, past traumas, and abuse. "1 in 6 Estonians are sexually abused before the age of 15," AGWM personnel reports. "And 90% of the population does not believe in a God or spiritual being." Pray for God to prepare the hearts of Estonians to lay their heavy burdens down and receive His gentle love. Also, pray for God to give wisdom and discernment to ministers of the gospel as they address these sensitive issues and tend to the needs of the people.
Please pray for believers throughout Cambodia, a country in Southeast Asia where over 90% of the population is Buddhist. New requirements have been implemented requiring 30 persons for the registrations of religious bodies. Pray for the Holy Spirit to guide and direct the hearts and minds of Cambodian believers, giving them wisdom as they navigate this present challenge. Also, pray for religious freedom to be preserved and for God’s limitless power to be at work as He creates safe spaces for Cambodian believers to gather. May He use each believer to reflect the love of Jesus to the lost.
Please join us in prayer for our missionary team in Estonia, that they will have energy, peace, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit as they minister to others. Newly appointed AGWM missionary associate to Estonia John Crace shares, "Estonia is a world leader in suicide and depression rates. God's love and compassion have carried me through, and I am excited to share with Estonians how He can do the same for them." John will serve on a church planting team and help establish Chi Alpha on a university campus in Tallinn, Estonia. Pray that John’s personal story brings freedom and life to thousands of Estonians throughout the capital city. Also, pray for God’s covering over the heart and mind of each team member, and over John as he prepares to enter the field.
Pray God will continue to use Christians who have decided to stay in Syria to serve as
witnesses for Christ. Many face persecution amid the dangerous and harsh conditions that come with religious intolerance. Join us in prayer that the Holy Spirit will enable them to be steadfast, immovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in Him their labor is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Please pray for families across the Arab world to have an openness to the gospel message and unity in Christ. “Though the Arab World is traditionally hostile towards Christianity, we are seeing breakthroughs,” Eurasia Community shares. “Often times one family member receives Jesus but follows Him secretly out of fear of persecution.” Pray for the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of unbelieving spouses and family members. May Arab families find truth in the light of God’s Word as they build their foundation on Him.
Join us in prayer that God would equip media missionaries to effectively minister the gospel message to the lost peoples of the world. “A new generation of church leaders is rising that is more tech-savvy,” writes Asia Pacific Media. “It’s an extraordinary time as we see God opening up the opportunity to multiply the Digital Church by training its leaders.” Ask for the Lord to go before these leaders, giving them wisdom and discernment, and providing them with the tools and resources necessary to reach others.
Please pray for Buddhists who respond to the gospel message to birth church planting movements within their own communities. May God give His people a vision of a victorious church among these peoples. AGWM personnel reports, “Life, for the Buddhist, is a never-ending and demanding labor of trying to achieve enlightenment, gain spiritual favor, and escape the pain of this life. There is neither assurance of a loving God nor hope for a joy-filled eternity in his presence.” May the Holy Spirit use His followers to share the hope of Jesus, a joy-filled message of grace and not works.
Join us in prayer for ethnic minority groups throughout the western regions of Northern Asia. “Most of these groups are difficult to access and bound by intense spiritual darkness,” says AGWM’s Northern Asia region. Pray that spirit-empowered workers from all nations will be called to live among these peoples and share a gospel witness. Also pray that they are no longer bound by spiritual darkness but instead filled with the light and life found in Christ Jesus.
Pray for God’s protection over Christians throughout Central and East Africa as they continue to face conflict and daily threats. “Some of the locations people work in are hostile to the Gospel,” AGWM personnel shares. “Pray for the health and safety of our missionaries and locals working alongside the Tanzania Assemblies of God. Pray that God would cover them in His peace and protection.” Also, pray for God to cover global workers and believers as they stand on the truth of God’s Word.
Join us in prayer for persecuted believers to be strengthened across the world as they encounter violence, abuse, and even death. “Persecution and suffering among global Pentecostal churches has increased,” the Pentecostal Commission on Religious Liberty (PCRL) shares. “There have been more arrests, trials, and confiscations of places of worship. Intercession and spiritual support are needed now more than perhaps ever before. Please do not forget that the situation for Pentecostal Christians in the world is still very, very challenging.” Pray for the Holy Spirit to encourage the hearts of those suffering and confirm God’s truth that they are not alone.
Join us in prayer for AGWM global workers serving on staff at the Bolivia Hope Center as they minister to the needs of over 40 children. For over a decade, AGWM global worker Brooke Davis was involved in children’s ministry in PenFlorida, until God opened the door for her to serve at Bolivia’s Hope Center. Brooke shares, “My love for Jesus and my love for the children of Bolivia motivate me to pursue this dream — to build a brighter future where they will know that ‘Though my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will take me in’ (Psalm 27:10). With over 40 children under our care, you can only imagine how much strength, grace, and patience is required of our team and staff at the Hope Center! Please pray for our staff that God would supply all of their needs and shine through them as Christ-like examples for our children.”
Pray for families, Christian workers, and churches across China, especially during Spring Festival. This holiday is a special time when people travel to spend extended time together. With the latest round of loosening of pandemic-related travel restrictions, more people are traveling for this year’s holidays than in the last several years. Over 2 billion trips are expected to take place during this time. Please pray for health and safety as COVID continues to be an issue in rural and vulnerable populations. Please join with the church in Northern Asia to pray that Christ will be shared across family tables throughout this holiday.
