The ION Prayer Team is looking at how to be an advocate to help others see the reality of the need for strategic prayer for Oral and Oral Bible-less People Groups. In helping others to see the need and in coming alongside them as is needed to make the shift. It has been said, “Every great move of God was birthed in a prayer movement.” we believe that goes directly back to the birthing of the Church with the disciples and the 120 praying in the Upper Room going into Pentecost.
Now going into 2016, our teams are asking God for a greater, more effective collaborative movement of prayer. It will need to be directed at getting prayer advocates and even prayer strategists in place for each of the least reached people groups and all of us need to work alongside each other. That need continues until we get to zero people groups, who still wait to hear the name of Jesus.
We remember Luke 10:2 & John 17:20-23, we know that we are not alone in this task. . . Everyone needs to raise the awareness and rally the troops, so that every people group is being prayed for specifically for a gospel movement to reach into the every and all.
Luke 10:2 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
2 He told them, “The harvest is large, but the workers are few. So ask the Lord who gives this harvest to send workers to harvest his crops.
John 17:20-23 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
20 “I’m not praying only for them. I’m also praying for those who will believe in me through their message. 21 I pray that all of these people continue to have unity in the way that you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray that they may be united with us so that the world will believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me. I did this so that they are united in the same way we are. 23 I am in them, and you are in me. So they are completely united. In this way the world knows that you have sent me and that you have loved them in the same way you have loved me.
