Tuesday’s Prayers for Prisoners (6/9/2015)

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)

Today, it dawned in me that if 6% of the population in Asia are Christians, that means there are approximately 250 to 300 million believers in Asia. Now, 250 to 300 million Christians sounds like a lot until you realize there are 4.1 billion people in Asia who do not know Jesus. 4.1 billion people!

Leonard Ravenhill once stated: “The biggest sins we Christians will face at the Judgment Seat of Christ are not the sins we committed, but our sins of omission (or not doing the things we should have done while we lived on earth).”

Can we ignore 4.1 billion people who do not know Jesus and expect to be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ? I know I can’t.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, give me Your love for the people of Asia, for the least to the greatest, for Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and whatever, and give me no rest until You have worked Your plans through me for Asia.

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

  1. Thank you, Mr. Larry , for leading us in prayer again for Asia. I prayed for us to have a perpetual fire inside us for the unreached in Asia. God bless you!
