Prayer Journey

Description

Are the needs of the poor on your heart? Pray for them.

Why not start in Afghanistan and proceed alphabetically – all the way to Zimbabwe.

With about 196 independent states around the globe, you can cover them all in a year, if you are diligent—it breaks down to about 16 places a month. Or you could move at a more leisurely pace and spread the task over a few years.

Operation World provides an excellent alphabetical guide (www.operationworld.org) with facts, stats, and challenges to lift up. You can keep track of the countries you learn about and pray for and even mark your progress

Afghanistan needs your prayers. The country ranks close to the bottom of the human development index, with an average lifespan of only 50 years. Close to 60 percent of children are stunted in their growth and only on half of the people get their drinking water from a safe source.

When you pray, mention leaders by name. Keep track of your prayer progress by hanging a world map on your wall and marking the countries you’ve prayed for with pushpins or stickers.
