Every Nation: Pray for Specific Countries

“If you ask Me, I will give you the nations; all the people on earth will be yours” (Psalm 2:8 NCV).

A good way to begin thinking globally is to begin praying for specific countries. Get a globe or map and pray for nations by name. The Bible says, “If you ask Me, I will give you the nations; all the people on earth will be yours” (Psalm 2:8 NCV).

Prayer is the most important tool for your mission in the world. People may refuse our love, or reject our message, but they are defenseless against our prayers. Like a rocket, you can aim a prayer at a person’s heart whether you’re ten feet or 10,000 miles away.

What should you pray for? The Bible tells us to pray for opportunities to witness, for courage to speak up, for those who will believe, for the rapid spread of the message, and for more workers. Prayer helps us do what God calls us to do, and it makes you a partner with others around the world.

You should also pray for missionaries and everyone else involved in the global harvest. Paul told his prayer partners, “You are also joining to help us when you pray for us” (2 Corinthians 1:11 GWT).
