Pray Daily

Pray Daily delivers a daily glimpse of what God is doing around the world. Intercede for the nations as you lift up requests and praise God for answered prayers. This personal prayer guide is sure to be a great addition to your daily prayer time.
  • WORLD LEADER - “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

    Please pray for President Peter Martin Christian of Federated States of Micronesia (Pacific Ocean, between Indonesia and Hawaii).

  • LAST FRONTIER - "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you" (James 1:5, NIV). Pray for wisdom for workers seeking to reach a Last Frontier people group. Access to this people group continues to become increasingly difficult. The workers need wisdom in knowing effective methods of gaining access to them and sharing the gospel. Because of the risks involved with this people group, the work environment is stressful and dangerous. Therefore, they need God's protection, wisdom, and peace as they make important decisions every day despite the dangers.

  • SOUTHEAST ASIAN PEOPLES - "In a village in one province, we have been teaching health and Bible for a year. There is a family who accepted Christ this past month. Pray for the husband, Sokha*, his wife, Sophea*, and their adult children as they dedicate their lives and home to the Lord. Petition for understanding and obedience as they learn about baptism, and pray that their home will become a house church for this village that has no other believers." (*names changed)

  • SORANI AND BEHDINI KURDS OF CENTRAL ASIA (so-RAHN-ee, bah-DEEN-ee) - "Please lift up brothers and sisters who are currently away on vacation or visiting extended family back in the United States. Ask that they will be singing a new song as they come back and that they will 'land' well back into life here. Please lift up potential teammates who are currently in the process, and pray that the Lord will be at the forefront of their and our minds."

  • PEDI OF SOUTH AFRICA (PEH-dee) - Thank you for praying for the volunteer team from Texas that ministered among the Sekhukhune Pedi of the Limpopo Province last month. The stateside coordinator for the Pedi work also accompanied the team. The group ministered in the community of Sealane, providing opportunities for many Pedi to know the Lord. Hopefully, many hearts were touched and lives changed. Please continue to pray for the development of strategic relationships that will encourage other SBC churches to send volunteer teams to minister to the Sekhukhune Pedi of the Limpopo Province, especially since there is no IMB presence among this people group. Pray for the development of committed Christian leaders and pastors to lead new and old Pedi Baptist churches.

  • KABYLE BERBERS OF ALGERIA AND FRANCE (kuh-BEEL BER-bers) - Ali* is dearly loved by a brother who desperately wants to see him in heaven. For over two years now, hours and hours have been spent trying to help Ali understand who Jesus is. When it appears that he has moved forward, Ali reverts back to his superstitions. He has been taught stories that have no background or historical support, and whose principals and logic appear to have very little wisdom or moral value. He has two Bibles now, and they just sit on his coffee table, collecting dust. The brother feels intense frustration, and there have even been moments of wanting to give up on Ali, who only halfheartedly believes in what he says he believes, yet rejects Jesus because he claims that the Bible was falsified. Ali is an example of someone being held hostage spiritually. He has been given the tools and told the path to salvation, and at this point, only prayer will loosen the grip that false beliefs have on him. As these seeds have been sown, please pray that God will see fit to make them grow and that Ali will come to accept fully that Jesus is Lord. (*name changed)

  • TUMBUKA OF MALAWI AND ZAMBIA (toom-BOO-kah) - "'The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever' (Isaiah 40:8, ESV). The bright pink flowers contrasted greatly with the mound of dirt, the dry brush around us, and the sounds of wailing from the crowd of approximately 400 people. My husband and I were attending the funeral of our friend and a pillar in the women's ministry of our local area. Funerals in Zambia are common and also very important. I felt the tears trickle down my cheek as I sat silently, earnestly praying in my heart that God would open the people's ears to hear as my husband preached of the hope our friend had found in Christ and how all who were there could have eternal life in Him. Because of so many factors, but mainly poor medical care, many die at an early age in our rural area. HIV, AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis claim many lives, but Christ offers hope to even the least of these. Please join us in praying for many to hear and turn to Christ and follow Him only. Please pray for the Christians to be bold in their witness as they truly grieve not as those 'who have no hope' (1 Thessalonians 4:13)."
