Acts 17:16, NET
While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, his spirit was greatly upset because he saw the city was full of idols.

Pray that you will be disturbed by idolatry in your city enough to pray for the lost and present the gospel to them.

People Next Door

by KH

He made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, if perhaps they might search for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. Acts 17:26, 27, NASB
“Did you know,” said Chuck Register of Peoples Next Door (PND), “that more foreign-born residents are in the USA than the combined state populations of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, and Arkansas?”
The PND prayer map shows that unreached people groups like the Gujaratis, Hindi speakers, Punjabis, Berbers, Moroccans, Somalis, Wolof, and Thai live, work, and get a higher education in the North Carolina’s “Raleigh Triangle” region. This area includes North Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina.
While these major universities attract many from hostile non-Christian backgrounds, World Relief and Lutheran Family Services help to settle hundreds of refugees each year into the area. Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary has done extensive ethnic mapping. In these last days Almighty God has given His Church a profound opportunity to reach these beloved unreached people. We must not choose to be unavailable.

Pray that the Church will see the need to become aware of these people and get involved in their personal, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Pray that Christ followers will be salt and light, and follow the leading of God’s Holy Spirit.
