To the Ends of the Earth

This page will be continually updated with prayer opportunities for those around the world. Please understand that the page title comes from Acts 1:8 and does not refer specifically to those outside of the United States. If you live in Buenos Aires or Pretoria or Hanoi, then Los Angeles is the ends of the earth to you. Furthermore, the ends of the earth may be just down the block. Here are a few to pray for today:

Bibles for France: France is the home of awe-inspiring cathedrals like Notre Dame and Chartres, and the birthplace of giants of the faith like St. Francis de Sales and John Calvin. Yet according to Operation World, a publication that chronicles the state of religion around the globe, less than 10% of people in France own a Bible, and up to 80% have never even handled one. To quote St. Jerome: "Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ."

South Sudan: World attention was focused here 6 years ago, following the Darfur crisis and the independence of South Sudan from Sudan. Since then South Sudan has slipped from the headlines. Yet a civil war has raged there since 2013, and a famine has 6 million of the country's 11 million people on the brink of starvation.
