Prayer Precedes Action

By Dave Brubacher

Eurasia is a vast land rich in heritage and history. Most countries in this lesser-known region were formerly part of the Soviet Union. In this continental expanse you will find multi-layered cultures, painting a diverse landscape with strong undertones of the past mixed with vibrant tints of the present and soft hues of the future.

The people of Eurasia are what makes this region special. They are generally warm, welcoming, and family-oriented. They value their art traditions and connection with nature. In this picturesque region of sprawling steppes, meadows, and mountains reside millions who have not heard the gospel.

The beginnings of Pray for Eurasia

To increase awareness about the region and invite more believers to pray for the unreached people groups (UPGs) of Eurasia, we created a missions resource website called Pray for Eurasia. It is a hub of information and updates on UPGs across this massive region.

Recognizing that nothing can be done without prayer, our PFE team thought of leveraging technology to encourage Christians to intercede for Eurasia. After years of planning, brainstorming, and working closely with app developers, we have finally created and recently launched the Pray for Eurasia mobile app!

This free app contains information on over 175 UPGs with specific ways you can lift them up in prayer. As you explore the app, you will learn about their historical/cultural background, location, and how much exposure they have to the gospel. We also wanted to make it easy for users to remember to pray so we included a daily notification option.

Increasing accessibility

Even in the early stages of app development, our team was fully committed to reaching a wider audience. Thus, we are not only offering the app in English but also in Ukrainian, Russian, and German, with Spanish and Chinese coming soon. We hope that by providing multiple language options, more Jesus followers from all over the world can join us in praying for the UPGs of Eurasia.

We invite you to download the Pray for Eurasia app from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Share it with your family and friends, too! Together, let’s pray for God’s work to flourish among the unreached peoples of Eurasia.

Finally, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it was also with you. 2 Thessalonians 3:1
