A healthy church is missional. Good prayer begins with God, and it ends only with an appropriate focus on the lost of the world. Prayer is, at its heart, worship, and at its edge mission, and, in between, God meets our needs.
Church of God Prayer Leaders are encouraged to adopt Unreached People Groups (more information about each group can be found at joshuaproject.net), Prayer Leaders from other Nations and Career Missionaries (more information at cogwm.org) to pray for them on a regular basis. Below are lists of each of these sectors with the Prayer Leader that has adopted that sector. Complete the form below to sign-up to pray for an Unreached People Group, National Prayer Leader or Career Missionary. Currently only the continent of Africa is represented. Check back for other continents to be available soon.

General Overseer of the Church of God, Tim Hill has set forth his vision for the FINISH Commitment, a “Global Church Focus on the Great Commission.”
Prayer Ministries has adopted these commitments and goals based on the ‘I’ in FINISH which stands for INTERCEDE, making prayer and worship the highest privilege and greatest responsibility of every believer.
“Whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive” (Matthew 21:22 KJV).
We are committed to:
- Commit globally to 6,000,000 hours of prayer annually for the FINISH Commitment.
- Recruit globally 1,000,000 prayer partners, providing prayer 24/7.
- Implement an intentional FINISH Prayer/Fasting Initiative annually in each local church, state, region, and area of the world.
As part of the plan to fulfill these goals, the Prayer Ministries Office charges each church to pray 5 minutes once a month for a Global Harvest. Below are resources for your use including a bulletin insert and power point.
