Pray that those who intercede for the peoples of Africa will persevere with the faith that God will raise these nations up for His purposes.
Prayer lists and resources exist that tell you how God wants you to pray for the remaining 7,000 unreached people groups. Would you pray through these prayer requests if you could find information about unreached people groups that are currently being reached by missionaries? Would you be more motivated to pray if they posted regular updates?
This is now possible, and actually happening, thanks to work by Africa Inland Mission International (AIM). They have a website called PrayAfrica.org where you can find a list of unreached people groups in Africa. Most of these people groups have missionaries among them. Either the missionary or someone they know posts current prayer requests for the work being done. You can also find prayer updates on the Pray Africa Facebook page.
Here is one example: Oral Bible stories that can be used on MP3 players and cell phones were given to select leaders of one unreached West African people group that GPD readers have prayed for regularly. One time we prayed for them for a full month. The missionary remarked that the leaders from the Fulbe group have given them positive feedback. They now need to get more MP3 players to other members of this people group.
Pray for these Muslim leaders to be given the gift of faith in Jesus Christ after hearing these messages. Pray that these efforts will open the door for people from this entire group to seek Christ.
