Finish Commitment Prayer Resource For Unreached Peoples NO 33 Alive Ministries: PROJECT PRAY – www.projectpray.org
The Mandate: “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men – extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector’” (Luke 18:11). Alive Ministries: PROJECT PRAY – www.projectpray.org
The Meditation: • PASTOR:We confess, we need your help to love this lost world. North America has changed so radically in the last forty years that we find ourselves revolted by things and people around us. • PEOPLE: How can we love a world, itself so in love with sin, and so resistant to godly standards? We are conflicted, God. • PASTOR: You led with love – not truth. To the world, the sinners, you were loving and non-condemning. To the righteous, you were confrontational. • PEOPLE: We have it backwards. We have been trying to “truth” the world into love. We have made your love conditional! • PASTOR: Forgive us for getting so lost in our own desires to live in a “Christian” nation with Christian friends, that when you have needed my witness to those around me, we have been AWOL. • PEOPLE: Paul urged us to let our speech “be gracious” (Col. 4:6). So, now we pray that same prayer. Alive Ministries: PROJECT PRAY – www.projectpray.org
The Profile … • Over two million live in Ethiopia, where they are known as the Western Somali. • The Somali share a common language, adhere to a single faith, and share a cultural heritage that is an integral part of their nomadic lifestyle. • A typical family owns a herd of sheep or goats and a few burden camels. Some may also own a herd of breeding and milking camels. The more camels a man has, the greater his prestige. • The Somali consider themselves warriors. The men often leave the women in charge of the herds, so that they might train to become more effective fighters. • The nomads live in portable huts made of wooden branches covered with grass mats. They are easily collapsible so that they can be loaded on pack animals and moved along with the herds.

Prayer … • Ask the Holy Spirit to soften their hearts towards Christians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel. • Ask God to grant favor and wisdom to the missions agencies that are focusing on the Somali. • Pray for effectiveness of the Jesus film among the Somali. • Ask God to anoint the Gospel as it goes forth via radio and television to the Somali. • Pray that God will raise up prayer teams to go and break up the soil through worship and intercession. • Ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into Ethiopia. • Ask the Lord to raise up strong local churches among the Somali.

MISSION QUOTE: Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological arguments, but out of love. Roland Allen The Unreached People Group Somali of Ethiopia Alive Ministries: PROJECT PRAY – www.projectpray.org
