30 Days 30 Peoples: Prayer Emphasis
April 1-30, 2017
Join with other North Carolina Baptists in united prayer for the unreached people groups in our state. Every day during the month of April we will focus our hearts on praying for the gospel to impact a different unreached people group.
What is an unreached people group?
An unreached people group (UPG) is defined as a grouping of people who share the same ethnicity and language and whose home country is less than 2 percent evangelical Christian.
Currently, at least 154 unreached people groups have been identified with sizeable populations in North Carolina. Today, upwards of 15 percent of North Carolina’s population — that is 1.5 million people — are foreign-born or are the children of foreign-born immigrants.
Almost all of these people have never heard the gospel.
Prayer lays hold of God’s plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth. Amazing things happen, and we are given the privilege of being the channels of the Holy Spirit’s prayer. – Elisabeth Elliot
