He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothersor your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” Luke 14:12-14

There is no better way to invite the poor into your life than praying and fasting for the people of Asia.

My prayer for today:

Lord, I pray for Your hope to flood the prisons of North Korea so that the thousands of people held captive for their faith would see there are more for them than against them. (Based on 2 Kings 6:16)

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

Why Asia?

1. 4.4 billion people live in Asia.

2.. 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.)

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

4. 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.

5. 600 million people live in abject poverty in the slums of Asia.

6. 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)

  1. Yes, Father. We ask you to deliver those behind iron bars and under such an oppressive iron ceiling. Your word says that your angels obey the voice of your Word. They go out and do your will. We ask for you to speak to them and send them to North Korean Christians in prison. Open gates that no man can shut again. Lead your prisoners out and be glorified in North Korea, in Jesus’ name I ask this, amen.

  2. Lift the Cross of Jesus!,

    Amen. God bless you.

  3. Oh Mr. Larry . . .this is a great prayer. Praying it with you! Thank you and God bless you!

  4. Debbie,

    Thanks. God bless you.
