We are asking you to step in together to see what God is doing and how we can come alongside each other for the sake of those who still wait… Linking in a “two way discussion/prayer format” as Prayer Teams, so that together we might see an invisible, yet tangible platform from which the “need” can go forth to every prayer group across the globe to be involved in praying for those who still wait to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are asking and persistently prevailing to the Lord that He would connect us in such a way.
We are looking for others who are willing to collaborate, to see the reality of prayer come forth to bring an understanding of current LOSTNESS around the globe. Both in your individual region and nation, and also in other “ends of the earth” areas. We are also asking for a larger network of prayer leaders who can come together to see what is it going to take to get to ZERO, and who want to help others to put a larger priority on prayer. And allow everyone to be able to pray in a more united way for the unreached of the globe.
It is estimated that of the 7.3 billion people alive in the world today, 1.2 to 1.4 billion have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Joshua Project.net there are approximately 16,000 unique people groups in the world with about 6,600 of them considered unreached. The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and are oral people groups.
In praying for the Oral & Oral Bible-less, we want to pray not only to make just a convert, but a disciple of Jesus. That requires the Scriptures to be available in the mother tongue. Finishing the Task (FTT) allows you to download the most current listing of people groups with NO SCRIPTURE: http://www.finishingthetask.com/uupgs.php?sort=Country
Wycliffe Bible Translators reports that of the approximately 6,800+ living languages across the world today, about 1,778 have definite translation needs. That means for mother-tongue speakers of those 1,778 languages no Scripture exists at all. They may have limited access in trade or major languages, but no access in their heart language. Of course the languages with the larger number of speakers have been translated but even many millions do not have the Scriptures in their mother-tongue.
We invite you to pray and fast as the Lord might lead.
