Communities where He is least known

People of the North

An estimated 28 million Hausa live in Nigeria, with tens of millions more Fulani and Kanuri, with the vast majority professing Islam. Many Muslims are afraid to consider Christianity because they fear persecution. Indigenous missionaries are working among these people; however, many have never heard the Gospel. Additional workers are needed to bring the gospel message to the north, participate in holistic ministries of compassion, and encourage Nigerian missionaries in their outreach efforts.

Youth

It is estimated that almost half of Nigeria’s population of 175 million is 14 years of age or younger. A vast number of the youth are non-Christians, and are affected by non-Christian messages of society. Many youth from Christian families aren’t attending any church; some who do are nominal Christians. The Nigerian church has begun to address this reality by teaching them to live godly lives in a rapidly changing world. Workers are needed to assist the Church in reaching this community through genuine relationships.

Prayers

1

Pray for Nigeria’s millions of Muslims to consider the light of the Gospel and encounter Christ.

2

Pray for care and discipling for Muslims who become Christians.

3

Pray for our new northern initiative, and missionaries for new ministry opportunities in the Islamic North while the region is still open to the Gospel (John 9:4).

4

Pray for our new internship program to gain momentum and raise a new generation of workers to engage in world missions.

5

Pray for rebuilding of devastated communities and churches in the northeast and responding as Jesus would to famine and disease conditions in the region.

6

Pray for effective ministry to widows, orphans, people with disabilities, the abused, and other vulnerable communities.

7

Pray for persecuted believers to endure hardship and practice love and forgiveness.

8

Pray for peace and reconciliation between Christians and Muslims.

9

Pray the Nigerian church to experience a powerful, Spirit-led revival.

10

Pray for our missionaries, as they live and minister in this high-stress environment.
