NAPERVILLE, IL – Prayercast is a division of OneWay Ministries, committed to “activating God’s people to exalt Jesus Christ and advance His gospel to the multitudes.”
If prayer is, as John Wesley once said, “Where the action is,” then Prayercast is the 21st-century compass to point us to where the action is.
Senator and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee expanded on Wesley’s timeless thought, explaining that “If you’re praying, you’re really looking beyond your own personal thoughts and the pressures that are around you.”
When we understand the power of communing with the Lord, through His Son, Jesus Christ, when we believe that He hears and answers, when we comprehend His great love for every person in all the world, we will find ourselves burdened for those people as well. We will feel a longing to pray for their souls.
But, how do we know about the people who need to be reached with the Gospel? Where can we find information about people entrapped in a false religion? Where can we learn about the countries where they live? Where can we discover their particular needs? How can we begin and maintain a disciplined prayer life for people in every nation who need Jesus?
Prayercast is the answer to all those questions.
The List of Nations
The Prayercast website offers a list of nations alphabetically and by region. With a single click on any name on the list, prayer warriors can read an overview of that country, the percentage of unreached people, a video about how to pray for them, and up-to-date prayer points. We can become aware of that nation’s specific needs, bring them before the throne of grace, and ask the Lord to empower those who are working in that field.
Right now, Prayercast suggest three “Prayer Points” for Bolivia
“Pray for a strengthened economy that will put an end to abject poverty and the plight of homeless street children.
Pray for believers to be spiritually equipped for battle against the enemy who continues his hold on the Bolivian church.
Pray for a new standard of discipleship that will equip believers to stand against false doctrine and immoral lifestyles.”
The List of Religions
Another menu item on Prayercast is “World Religions.” Reading these pages helps Christians to understand what the followers of false gods believe. The website provides a background for their religion and a report on what God is doing among those people.
Did you know that 98% of Buddhists live in Asia? Did you know that 86% of them have never spoken with a Christian? Did you know that Buddhists are trying to attain peace through self-effort? Now you know a little bit better how to pray for them.
The List of Prayer Plans
There are five categories of prayer plans designed to lead believers into a disciplined routine of praying for the billions of lost people around the globe. Each category includes prayer cards and checklists for the list of nations, and the list of religions. There is also a prayer plan for countries where the persecution of Christians is the greatest, and another category that contains a list of the least reached nations, and a list of special needs picked by the staff.
Now is the right time to begin “looking beyond your own personal thoughts and the pressures that are around us.” Now is the right time to be praying for all the lost whom Jesus loves.
