Tuesday’s Prayers for Prisoners (4/28/2015)

Each Tuesday, I pray and fast for the nations of Asia, where 4.4 billion people live. 

Why Asia?

1. 85.4% of world’s unevangelized people live in Asia. (Unevangelized means they may have heard the gospel but have no understanding on how to respond.)

2. The world’s three largest non-Christian religions – Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhists – are based in Asia.

3. Of the 37 countries of the world that are less than 10% Christian, 32 are in Asia. Of the 14 countries, that are less than 2% Christian, 12 are in Asia.

4. 85-90% of unreached people live in Asia. (Unreached means that they have never heard the name of Jesus.) (Operation World: The Definitive Prayer Guide to Every Nation)

On Sunday, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal with the epicenter being fifty miles northwest of  Katmandu.  Parts of India, Pakistan, Tibet, and Bangladesh also were rattled. So far, 4,600 deaths have been confirmed, with the number expected to rise over the next few days.

Around a third of Nepal’s 29 million citizens earn less than $1 per day and 38% of the population are occupied with subsistence agriculture. 75% of the population is Hindu, 16% Buddhist, and less than 3% Christian.

“Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.” (Og Mandino)

Today I prayed:

Lord, I cry out for mercy for all the people of Nepal and neighboring nations whose lives are torn to pieces by this earthquake and pray that You raise up laborers to bring hope to the suffering people.

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for prisoners, according to Hebrews 13:3.
