How to Pray

Geographic barriers exist due to remoteness, lack of infrastructure, and the world's highest mountains. Persecution is significant due to the lack of distinction between ethnic and religious identity. If you profess Christ, you are stripped of your enthic identity.

01
Pray for Christian organizations working among Tibetan people groups to rely on God to reach these remote peoples.
02
Pray for Christian converts from Buddhism to be transformed by the power of the gospel message.
03
Pray that humanitarian efforts will be coupled with a clear presentation of the gospel so that both physical and spiritual needs are met.

Unreached peoples and places are those among whom Christ is largely unknown
