Inherit the Nations Initiative


 
Inherit the Nations: A Year of United Prayer for 50 Unreached People Groups (January 1 2015-Dec. 31 2015)
 
God is doing an amazing work around the globe of raising-up communities of prayer.  As I travel and meet brothers and sisters within this movement there’s a sort of immediate kinship, a deep affection that we often experience for one another, that’s a sure sign of the Lord’s work.
 
One of the things that almost all of us in the prayer movement are passionate about is praying for missions.  We all want to see “the gospel of the Kingdom preached to all nations.”  And yet, there are still over 4,000 specific people groups, nearly 3 billion people who have not even had a chance to hear about Jesus! 
 
Mission begins in Prayer.  Jesus tells us, “Ask the Lord of the Harvest to thrust forth laborers into the Harvest field.”  Is it not clear that a major reason for the upsurge of prayer in the Church at this time is to pray in this great harvest of souls and of nations?
 
Inherit the Nations: Adopting 50 Unreached People Groups for a Year of Prayer
 
For one year, we’re asking prayer communities to adopt a specific unreached people group for weekly prayer.  Through a partnership with the US Center for World Mission, you’ll receive a special Christmas Package that contains your adopted unreached people group and resources that you can use in praying for them.  You won’t self-select a people group, you’ll receive them as a gift!  We’re hoping in 2015 even on short notice to see 50 prayer communities adopt 50 unreached people groups.  As part of this initiative, you’ll:
  • Receive a package with your adopted people group (Updated: Package will arrive in early January)
  • Agree to pray at least once weekly as a community for your adopted people group for one year 
  • Keep a journal of prayer and words from the Lord for your adopted nation
  • Receive research information where available that will measure results of this year of prayer
  • Get connected to front-line missionaries in these nations when they’re available
  • Have opportunities to connect with Prayer communities around the nation(s)
