What is God doing among the nations today? What are the challenges and opportunities we face in global mission? How can we pray in an informed way for the world?

Start a mission-minded movement in your church this year with Praying for the World, a free weekly prayer guide to inspire and inform the whole church to pray for the whole world.

Through Praying for the World, our aim is to help churches around the world see the big picture of how God is moving in our world today, cultivate greater awareness of global missional needs and opportunities, and mobilize prayer and loving action.

Each of the 52 weekly prayer guides features a specific country or region and includes practical points for learning and praying:


Brief and engaging summaries on the country/region and related strategic topics, why they matter, and pointers to further materials


Simple key points to respond in prayer
