Pray for Mali

Mali is one of the 25 poorest countries in the world.

Mali has one of the world’s highest rates of infant mortality with 106 deaths per 1,000 births. Almost half of the population is under the age of 15.

Mali allows freedom of religion. Approximately 90% of the population in Mali is Muslim, followed by Christian (5%), and other indigenous beliefs (5%).

French is the official language of the country. The literacy rate in Mali is very low. It is significantly lower among women than men. The total literacy rate is estimated to be 46.4%.

Because of the needs of Mali, GNPI has been working with a NOMaD team (grassroots media production team) to produce The Global Gospel in the French language. The Global Gospel is designed to be a simple presentation of the life and story of Christ. It features 88 separate stories, beautifully illustrated with striking watercolor images.

Please watch this video and intercede for this nation to come to know Jesus Christ and the truth of his Word.

Pray for Indonesia

Indonesian people are scattered across 6,000 islands and speak more than 700 languages.

The democratic government faces many problems after years of military dictatorship.

Indonesia is the most populous Muslim nation in the world.

Persecution is a reality for many believers in this country.

GNPI is working to develop NOMaD teams (grassroots media production teams) in this region of the world to accelerate global evangelism through media and discipleship.

Please watch and pray for Indonesia.

Pray for South Africa


Violent crimes are commonplace and the murder rate is seven times that of the USA.

There are 1,200 victims buried each day due to the AIDS epidemic.

Until 1994, the country was known for apartheid – white-minority rule. South Africa’s remarkable ability to put centuries of racial hatred behind it in favor of reconciliation was widely considered a social miracle, inspiring similar peace efforts in Northern Ireland, Rwanda, and elsewhere.

We, at GNPI, have been reviewing places that are strategic points of ministry for the past several weeks. We will continue to highlight areas where our NOMaD teams (grassroots media production teams) are working throughout the world to accelerate global evangelism through media and technology.

Please watch this video and intercede for this nation to know true reconciliation through Jesus Christ.

Pray for the Philippines

GNPI’s regional center in the Philippines is located in Manila on the island of Luzon. Only about 2,000 of the 7,107 Philippine Islands are inhabited. The island of Luzon is the 4th most populated island in the world and is home to about half of the country’s population (which is 107.6 million).

More than 80% of the people in the Philippines claim Catholicism as their religion and only 3% call themselves evangelical Christians.

It can be difficult to communicate the need in beautiful countries like the Philippines. It is relatively well developed and is growing economically. However, looks can be deceiving.

So why pray for the Philippines?

  • Poverty exists everywhere – almost 50% of people live on less than $2 a day.
  • Human Trafficking victims:
    • 300,000 – 400,000 are women
    • 60,000 – 100,000 are children
  • There are more than 100,000 children who live on the streets
  • Natural disasters, such as the recent typhoon that killed more than 6,000 people last November and displaced more than 4 million people

Let your heart be touched. allow your spirit be stirred as you watch this video and pray along.

Pray for SE Asia

Some countries in SE Asia are not receptive to the Gospel, as Buddhism is the number one religion in that region of the world. But truly, not a week goes by that we don’t receive word from our co-workers there telling us of people coming to know the Lord and “taking baptism.”

The countries in SE Asia need our prayers. GNPI has three regional centers in Asia, and the resources they produce spill over into many different countries and people groups.

Please take just a few minutes to watch this video and pray for one of those countries.

Wars and Rumors of Wars

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed.” You know the verse. We can find it in Matthew as well as in Mark. There have been wars and rumors of wars throughout time, and it’s always scary. It’s especially scary when it’s close to you, or someone you love.

There are wars between countries or tribes, civil wars within countries, drug wars, the war on terrorism, the war on Christian values, Spiritual warfare, and even wars within our homes.

To warn you, there are some graphic images in this video. Many times we look away and forget or ignore the fact that this is real life for someone. We hope you will use this powerful video as a reminder to pray for peace, and to pray for countries and regions experiencing violence.

Our God still reigns.
Nothing surprises him.
Nothing will knock him off his throne.
Nothing will stop his plans for you.
Nothing will separate you from his love.

Together let’s ask him to bring peace and healing into our world, into our homes, and into our hearts.

Pray for Kenya

Kenya is a beautiful country, rich in colors, music, and history. Kenyans are strong and have endured much. More than 1.6 million people are living with HIV/AIDS and more than 60% of the population is 25 years old or younger.

The regional center in Kenya produces material that is culturally relevant and much of it is geared toward young people. Their music videos are even being used in the school system through a partnership with Kenya Institute of Education, who have been a backbone in Kenya’s education for many years.

This video will allow you a look at some of the beautiful people of this country and help you pray for this nation.

Pray for Thailand

Thailand is a country of vast beauty and extreme spiritual darkness.

Glorious beaches, rich green landscapes, and colorful costumes lend their beauty to this country. However, there is another side to this nation, a dark side that includes human trafficking and forced labor.

Ninety-four percent of the people there are Buddhists.

Tom Silkwood, regional director for GNPI-Thailand, says that in the many years he has worked in Chiang Mai as a missionary, he has never seen God moving as he is seeing today. Because of what he is seeing, Tom and his staff are producing a series called, Movement Everywhere. The first few episodes have been shown on a cable TV station and were recently featured on a college campus during the morning sessions of a conference held there. More than 2,000 students, staff, and visitors saw and heard about God’s active involvement in churches and organizations.

Please pray for Thailand. Pray that the people there will seek the one true God, because we know that God says, “seek and ye shall find.”

Was THAT Spanish??

Project NOMaD Coordinator Jason Miller has a great heart, but his Spanish leaves much to be desired. It is evident in this funny video clip, cultural relevance really is important. We don’t want to produce materials for Chileans to use in ministry, we want Chileans producing what will be best understood in their context!

The short clip below is from a video that was shown to 30-40 pastors in Chile, South America. Greg Fish, a new staff member in Joplin, actually grew up in Chile, so you’ll see him on the video speaking fluently and being a bit more culturally relevant! The goal of the whole 4-minute version was to help spark connections between these pastors and the NOMaD team in Santiago. Since Chileans culturally have a great sense of humor, we wanted to make them laugh in the process.

 Even if, like Jason, you don’t understand Spanish, you’ll laugh as you watch him try to say the Spanish lines Greg is feeding him.

This may be a light-hearted and funny story, but the progress and expansion of project NOMaD is no laughing matter. The potential for exponential growth is very exciting! Chile is just one new place where we are equipping and training nationals to use media for God’s glory.

Please join us in praying for the ever-growing and evolving NOMaD initiative.

Pray for India

India has a population of more than 1 billion people, more than 4,600 people groups who speak more than 1,600 languages. The main religion in India is Hinduism, with Islam coming in second.

The two regional centers and the brand new NOMaD teams in India have their work cut out for them. In less than two years, they have produced The Global Gospel in 6 languages. They have distributed The Global Gospel DVD’s in 17 states reaching over 60,000 people.

By the end of 2014, they anticipate that they will be able to reach almost 1 million people as they produce more languages and expand from DVD to include social media and mobile App distribution.

Please pray for the country of India to be receptive to the Gospel.
