Transforming The 10/40 Window Nations Through The Power of Prayer

The Resistant Belt Is The Final Frontier of World Missions

The l0/40 Window is a vast rectangular section of the globe stretching from l0 degrees south to 40 degrees north of the equator. It encompasses 69 nations in parts of Africa, the Middle East, and most of Asia. The 10/40 Window is called The Resistant Belt because of its stubborn opposition to the Gospel of Christ. With sustained, strategic prayer, however, this region will be transformed into "The Righteousness belt."

  • The l0/40 Window is the birthplace of the world's major religions, as well as home to the majority of Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.
  • Nearly 5 billion people live in the 10/40 Window (approximately sixty-six percent of the world's population).
  • Most of those living in the 10/40 Window remain unevangelized (they have not heard the Gospel in a culturally appropriate manner, or they have not had an opportunity to respond to the Gospel).
  • Over eighty-five percent of people living in the 10/40 Window are unreached.
  • The l0/40 Window contains the majority of the world's poorest of the poor (eight out of ten live in poverty).
  • This region is home to five of the six nations that actively sponsor terrorism.
  • According to the 2013 Open Doors World Watch List, 45 of the 50 worst persecutors of Christians are l0/40 Window nations.
  These are not mere coincidences. The Kingdom of God has scarcely penetrated this area. The 10/40 Window is an entrenched satanic stronghold. Many demonically influenced rulers hold billions of people captive. If Christian Believers do not reach the unreached billions with the Gospel, spiritual forces of evil will usher these people whom God loves into an eternity without God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9).

Whether it is terrorist attacks on the streets of Baghdad, corruption in New Delhi, poverty in refugee camps in Tindouf, or human trafficking in Bangkok, the precious people of the 10/40 Window are subject to immense suffering. Suffering that is spiritual, emotional, physical, economical, and mental.

The spiritual strongholds of anti-Christ, poverty, disease, corruption, persecution, and terrorism can only be broken through persistent prayer. God assigned the Church to pray strategically to demolish every power and principality so that the light of His love and redemption will be made known to the people of His beloved 10/40 Window.

Pray for a tremendous harvest of souls in the l0/40 Window. Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers into His harvest field (The Bible, Matthew 9:38).

Pray for God to draw billions more to His Son Jesus Christ. Pray for His Kingdom to grow and advance in every 10/40 Window nation (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 1:9).

Pray for Jesus Christ to be exalted. Pray that deception, arguments, and pretensions be demolished. Pray for every knee to bow, and every tongue in the 10/40 Window to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father (The Bible, Romans 14:11).
