South Asia is one of the most diverse places in the world is home to thousands of ethnic communities, hundreds of languages and over one million villages.
Thousands of villages have never been prayed for by name. No one has ever even thought about bringing their name before the Lord and interceding on their behalf. These forgotten and abandoned people are still waiting for someone to tell them about the most important event in all of history.
Some have asked, “How do you eat an elephant?” (How do you work on a giant project?) Others have answered, “One bite at a time.” (One step at a time – in small pieces). I say, “Invite a village and throw a party.” Any large project needs many people helping.
Would you or your church be willing to be a part of some of the most exciting things that God is doing in our time? Please do not only pray but also solicit many others to do the same.
This website contains thousands of prayer guides. These are found in zip files for small administrative areas of each country. You will first need to download a file and open it up or unzip it. In this file you will find prayer guides for each subdivision. These booklets are made by printing the document out double-sided and then folding it in the middle to make a booklet.
For instruction of how to do two-sided print please visit the following web-site:
In each booklet you will find the map of the state in the top left-hand corner with the praying hands logo on it. The state is filled with a brick pattern. The pattern represents a wall. This reminds us how the Jews worked together to rebuild the wall under Nehemiah’s leadership. Many people worked together each taking a section of the wall. In the wall pattern there are missing bricks. These missing bricks represent villages which have not yet heard the good news of Jesus Christ. Until all villages have heard then the task is unfinished and there are holes in the wall.
In the center area of the cover is a map of the focus division with all the sub-divisions so one can see where the sub-division fits into the division. In the lower right-hand corner is a map of the sub-division with all the villages, so one can see how many villages are in the sub-division.
The inside cover contains a short introduction and the inside back page contains a prayer guide with suggestions of how to use the booklet. The inside pages contain the names of all the villages in the sub-division. The left-hand column is the village code number. The center column is the village name in English. And the right-hand column is the village name in the local language.
Thank you for your participation in this enormous opportunity.
That All May Hear !!!
