Pray for 30 peoples this April

This April, 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.

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, upward 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 none of these people have ever heard the gospel. 

This free prayer guide was created specifically to assist you as you seek to pray for these peoples in our state. Additionally, if you would like a daily reminder and prayer prompt to pray for 30 peoples during the month of April, you may text PRAYPND to 313131. More information may be found at

"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
