Prayer is central to the Christian faith. There is verse after verse after verse in scripture that calls us, as believers, to pray to our God and King on behalf of ourselves, family, friends, those in authority, and even strangers. One of the most common bible verses on prayer known to believers and unbelievers alike is James 5:16. We trust the bible implicitly about what it says regarding “the prayer of a righteous person”.
A few months ago, I came across an app in the Google Play store called “Unreached of the Day”. This is a wonderful app and it is available on both the Google and iOS platforms. This app is sponsored by The Joshua Project. According to their website, the Joshua Project “is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ.”
I really like this app because it is a simple and bare bones product, but yet it contains so much information. There is a different people group to pray for during each day of the year. The information listed for each people group includes population numbers, primary religion, a summary of the people, ministry obstacles, a map of their area, language, etc.
However, I think the main draw of this app is the prayer focus. There is specific focus on how to pray for followers of Christ (if any) within the people group, a specific focus on how to pray for the group as a whole, and a specific scripture to pray regarding the group.
This app is great to incorporate into your personal morning or evening devotionals. Personally, I have incorporated it into my morning devotions and we use it as a family at night during the prayer portion of our family devotions. It’s a good app and it’s free. Download it and feel free to let me know what you think about it in the comments. Thanks. Grace and Peace.
