The prayer resources linked below are either downloadable PDFs or available for purchase for a nominal price. To be included on this page, a prayer resource must generally be about mission and preferably about mission to unreached peoples. It must also be downloadable from the web - no sensitive prayer guides are listed below. (And I generally prefer to link free prayer guides.) If your prayer guide isn’t on the list, (mailto:email@example.com)email me a link for it.
This page was last updated May 2023.
The prayer guides listed below will give you some broad prayer points about the particular regions, countries and peoples. If you want to know things to pray about this week, you might check out my free Weekly Roundup. It comes out each Friday and links to 70+ events that have happened in the world of the unreached.

City Prayer Guides
Out of ~106 unreached clusters below, ~41 are not “prayed for” (they lack a prayer campaign, guide, or initiative). Many of the following resources are print guides available for purchase, but the prices are usually nominal (~$1). If no guides are indicated for a specific cluster, I don’t know of a prayer guide for that cluster yet. If there is one, please let me know. If there’s not, why not create one?
