Matthew 6:14 “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” Pray that thousands will accept Christ’s saving work on the cross, the forgiveness that is found in Him alone, and the PROMISE of heaven.
The vision for Pray for Niger is to see the gospel message spread to all Nigeriens. Our key focus is on the Zarma as they are a people of great influence politically, socially, and economically. Pray that the name of Jesus would be made famous among the Zarma and all the people of Niger.
Isaiah 66:18 “And I, because of what they have planned and done, am about to come and gather the people of all nations and languages, and they will come and see my glory.” Pray that those who will be numbered among the nations and who will see God’s glory include the people of Niger.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Pray that the Nigerien people come to know their hope and future is in God alone.
100% of church multiplication movements had extraordinary prayer. Prayer brings the heart of man into agreement with the heart of God. His will, established and waiting in heaven, is manifest on earth as we say yes! Pray Your Kingdom come Lord, to Niger as it is in heaven!
Matthew 6:8b “for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
As Muslims, the Zarma people pray to Allah, a very impersonal god. Pray that thousands will come to know the one true God, their creator God, in a very personal way; their Father who knows what they need before they ask.
The vision of Pray for Niger is to have 100,000 people praying daily for Niger. We know God will move in Niger as His people pray for His will to be done. Pray for a multitude of God’s people to commit to praying daily for Niger.
Nehemiah 9:6 “You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.” Pray that the Nigerien people see God’s power and authority in his created world.
Matthew 5:39 “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” Among the Zarma, a predominantly Muslim culture, all who confess Christ will face persecution. Pray that those who come to Christ will stand firm in their faith and in the face of persecution.
All church multiplication movements have submitted themselves to the authority of God’s Word. Pray for Nigerien Christians to have a passion for God’s Word. Pray God’s Word will become more available and that people will submit themselves to it.
Matthew 5:37 “But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil.” Among the Zarma, men’s groups called Fadas are common. Men of varying ages come together for nightly gatherings to share life. Pray for men of peace to be found within the Fadas, individuals who practice genuine hospitality and display a joyful spirit who would be open to the gospel.

I John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them [the spirits of this world], because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” Our prayer today is that the spirit of God will overcome the spirits of the world for the Nigerien people.
