How to Pray

01
Pray that God would open the hearts of many Muslims in Turkey to receive the gospel. Ask him to give them the strength to withstand opposition for the sake of Christ.
02
Pray for churches to minister to those who are discriminated against or neglected due to their ethnicity or social status.
03
Pray for an end to the government’s violent actions toward citizens. Ask God to appoint leaders who will act for the good of the people.

Unreached people groups live in areas where Christ is unknown and there is little to no local church presence.
