"My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations" - Mark 11:17

Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness - Martin Luther

The Challenge:
When we look at our broken world, we can easily turn to despair, but God is drawing the nations to Himself and He chooses to work as we pray.

Comprising 22 countries; 15% of the world’s land area. This continent can be divided into three almost equal areas in terms of population and land area: Central America, Spanish South America and Brazil.

In 1900, almost the entire Spanish and Portuguese-speaking population was considered Catholic, although much of it had syncretistic influences from pre-Columbian ethnic religions.  The changes since then have been dramatic – from a narrow traditionalism, with strong opposition to Protestant missionary activity, to freedom of religion and the continued rapid rise of evangelicals.
