Five Reasons to Pray for Unreached Peoples.
Reason #4: Prayer is greater than evil.
Physical strength cannot overcome obstacles and challenges in the spiritual realm. Paul writes, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph 6:12). But in prayer even the physically weak can become extraordinarily strong in the spiritual realm. Think of the frail older sister or brother who quietly intercedes on behalf of unreached peoples. As such, we can call upon God to grant us power over evil. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak” (Matt 26:41).
Will you pray right now in the powerful name of Jesus that good will overcome evil in places of the world yet to hear the saving news of the gospel?
