We believe prayer is the indispensable key to the unfinished task among the ‘Forgotten Fourth World’-the one-fourth of the world with little access to the gospel. Unquestionably God has impressed that upon us as a Body and He has been growing a global prayer movement for decades now. The Lord has been calling people of prayer to model and assist others in cultivating conversational relationships with God and to ignite movements to Christ based on extraordinary prayer and intimacy with Him. This urgent necessity quickly became obvious, not only to survive, but to see fruit flourishing in these mostly hostile environments. In the course of pursuing loving obedience to His call, major prayer innovations have been and are being birthed. One of these seems to be the emerging role of the ‘prayer strategist’ that links passion for and practice of prayer and connection to prayer movements and networks with strategic field efforts to catalyze cascading movements to Christ.
Next month we will feature the largest “31 Frontier People Groups,” before launching out on a full year of prayer for the entire 401 Frontier People Groups (FPGs). Our background material next month will explain more. During those 13 months, we will pray for 88 percent of the people who are members of unreached people groups. If you have the “31” booklet already, you will notice that we put them in order by geography and re-wrote them with the GPD style.Keith Carey, Global Prayer Digest April 2019
