October 2023


The greatest gospel gap in the world is in 50 countries—they have barely any new, thriving churches. And nearly 75% of all the world’s unreached people (3.6 billion) live in 12 of those 50 countries. These people have the least access to the gospel in their own language.

Engage in strategic, focused prayer for the 12 countries of the world that are least reached with the gospel without ever leaving home.

Every month in 2023 we’ll feature one of these countries, familiarize you with its culture, and share prayer requests addressing the country’s specific needs. We believe the light of Jesus can shine through!

All about India

India’s vibrant colors, immense crowds, and overpowering smells captivate all who visit. India’s population of 1.42 billion people means it has surpassed China as the most populated country in the world. It is home to 2,500 distinct people groups who speak more than 1,600 different languages and dialects. One-third of the world’s unreached people groups live here. Pray that the glory of the knowledge of the Lord will cover India as the waters cover the sea.

Pray that churches in India will experience God’s powerful presence in a new way, and that this will lead to many more people choosing to trust and live for Jesus. Pray for believers in India to commit to studying the Bible and living out their faith like never before.

Pray that God, the creator of the Universe, will show the people of India that He is not only powerful, but also loving and knowable, and that He desires a relationship with each one of them.

Pray for a new short film series in the works that will help Indians see Jesus’ life and miracles portrayed in culturally relevant animation and dialogue. Pray for God to grant wisdom to the script writers and cultural experts working on this project.
