- Jesus is calling you to partner with Him – so you pray, partner and serve specifically as He leads you. Jesus is calling His people to pray and arise as a harvest worker – in a window of time before His return. The harvest is ready and the time is short. May God enable us each to fulfill our part so “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
Jesus is calling you to recognise the 2 or 3 you are to partner in prayer with: 2 or 3 friends, 2 or 3 local churches, 2 or 3 other areas, 2 or 3 nations.
When partners stand in agreement with God – heaven touches earth. “Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:18-20)
1. Partner in prayer with your friends and neighbours for the unreached people in your family and local community. You could be a Local House of Prayer. You can share Jesus with your neighbours. Three Circles
2. Partner in prayer and evangelism as local churches – to reach the people in your area. There is deep power and authority when local churches partner to see Jesus’ kingdom come in their shared territory. Together seek God’s specific strategy in how local churches can collaborate to pray and reach people in your region. See more on What You Can Do Regionally.

Nations are strengthened when other nations come to stand alongside them.
Nations fulfill their shared destiny when they stand together in a global region. Australia stands with New Zealand and the South Pacific Nations as The Great Southland of the Holy Spirit.
3. Partner in prayer for the unreached people groups in our world. When nations stand together in prayer & mission we truly exercise the authority of Jesus – as His House of Prayer for All Nations. When we pray specifically, we can see specific answers to our prayers. And, when we concentrate our prayers and giving toward the unreached peoples and nations we fulfill Jesus’ command and see remarkable results. Time is short.
POWERPOINT: A NATIONAL UPDATE ON PRAYER FOR EVANGELISM
Who are the unreached people groups “at the end of the earth”?
Much of our mission effort still flows to regions that now have high percentages of Christians. Talk to your church about praying for and supporting workers to an unreached people group.
Today there are 1,347 Unengaged, Unreached People Groups who are still beyond the reach of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray for workers to reach these 1,347 people groups who are at the very heart of the unfinished Great Commission task. These approximately 41 million people are spiritually lost and helpless, like sheep having no Shepherd. Among them Christ remains unknown, unacknowledged, and unadored. These 1,347 are perhaps the neediest of the needy. They are unengaged, which means that no church, no mission agency— no one has yet taken responsibility to tell them of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
See: FinishingtheTask.com for updated list of unreached people groups and Joshua Project
Download or print a 31 day guide so you can pray for an unreached people group each day.
Pray for the groups needing scripture translation, church planting, or evangelism – the people who are being neglected, the languages that are not funded, and the geographic areas which have no workers. Stand with the people and organizations who are attempting to play a significant role in these areas – often at the price of their lives – and pray for them specifically by name.
Pray for the persecuted Christians across the earth. https://www.opendoors.org.au/persecuted-christians/world-watch-list/

God’s Chosen People
Our covenant keeping God chose Israel as His special people and we are in the fullness of time when the gospel goes back from the Gentiles to Israel – when their eyes are open to receive their Messiah. Pray with us for Israel to receive Jeshua Hamashiach as Lord! Partner with Messianic congregations. (Romans 11:25-36)
There are unreached frontiers waiting for you
The Moravians impacted the world with their radical discipleship. It began in repentance and became a 24/7 prayer & worship & mission movement. From 1727 they prayed for over 100 years and sent out 3,000 Protestant missionaries – many of whom gave their lives. They said, “May the Lamb Receive the Reward of His Suffering.”
See our recent trip to Herrnhut where the Moravians began 120 years of prayer & Mission.

- The Reward of His Suffering by Matt Papa. This video illustrates the unreached people groups waiting for radical disciples in this generation.
